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.

Left turn signal causes the turn signals to act as hazard signals preventing other drivers from knowing the truck is turning left. There is a know recall coering this issue with 03 SUVS and trucks, but Chevy states it does not effect my truck. Here is the recall from the internet." On certain trucks and sport utility vehicles, the driver wishing to signal a turn by moving the directional signal lever, (up or down) may cause the front marker/turn lights and rear turn lights to flash in a manner similar to hazard warning, rather than flashing on the desired side only. Defect consequence: The driver may not be able to clearly signal their intentions to turn, change travel lanes, or potentially warn others of an impaired vehicle operating condition increasing the risk of a crash. Remedy: Dealers will replace the suspect flasher modules with a new flasher module designed with sealed relays and more durable contact material inside of the relays free of charge. The recall began on August 4, 2005. Isuzu began mailing owner letters on August 4, 2005. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, Isuzu at 1-800-255-6727, Buick at 1-866-608-8080, and Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537. Notes: General Motors Corp., 05044

The caller said that when turning on the left turn signal the hazard lights come on. He said they go off when he finishes the turn. It started without warning about nine months ago, but has gotten worse lately. It does not happen every time, but it is happening more often. Dealer and manufacturer claim there is no recall on this vehicle and they will offer no help for free.
