Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

The heater blower would not turn off which drained the battery. Now both parts need to be replaced. According to Chevrolet, this part was a recall item if made from a certain manufacture. Apparently, our part was a different manufacturer which is why we didn't get the recall notice. Since our part failed, perhaps, it is a design defect or the other manufacturers were delinquent during the assembly process as well. Please investigate to see if we may qualify for a recall on this part.

It seems I have the same issue as most the blower works randomly. I have also smelled smoke. The blower stays on after the car has been shut off and I have exited the vehicle. Second time I have had issues first time was covered by warranty.

2005 4-door Chevy Silverado 4X4 defroster/heater/blower and directional indicator and temp gauge in mirror fail at altitude (about 3,000 feet) only in winter driving conditions where temp. Is around 32 degrees. Dealer is at a complete loss as to the issue which is a safety issue with no "heated" air passing over the windshield to clear and defrost.
