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.

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission

If it rains and wipers are used wipers will not turn off unless fuse is pulled. Water gets into wiper module and cause short circuit., which depending on the occurrence and weather situation, driver visibility could be reduced, which could result in a crash.

problem #2

Silverado 2500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 83,000 miles
Failure of windshield wipers intermittantly usually when it's raining very hard; resulting in total loss of visibility and near collision on several occasions. GM knows they have a problem with circuit boards. This is surely a safety item.

problem #1

Jan 122005

Silverado 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles
Windsheild wiper variable speed control does not work properly. Wipers will not turn off once turned on, thus ruining the wipers in light drizzle/foggy conditions. Intermittant settings do not work at all, wipers only work in normal and high mode.

- Buda, TX, USA
