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 contact owns a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. When the vehicle was turned off, the blower motor remained on and the contact had to constantly disconnect the battery. The dealer diagnosed that the blower control motor prematurely failed and needed to be replaced. The contact was informed by the dealer and manufacturer that the vehicle was not included in a recall to address the repair. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 160,000.

The heater fan blower went bad, melted both ends of the plug-in on the resistor block. I called the local Chevy dealer and was told they had been having problems with this part and that it would be $500. To fix it. I purchased the parts to fix it, and did it myself. I sent a letter to Chevrolet and ask why the parts weren't recalled, this could have caused a fire, causing a wreck or death. They called back later and said that they didn't know they had a problem with this part. If they have a special wiring kit made just to fix this problem how can say they don't know it exists. The local dealer told me that they had fixed over 50 of these, and this is a very small dealer, so how many have been fixed all over the country and $500. A hit. The consumer shouldn't have to pay for something that Chevrolet knows they have a problem with.
