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.

Caravan Limited 2.8L 4 cyl

The turn signals intermittently work, mostly not and hardly ever in cold weather. Speculate maybe a censor problem. Again, another extreme safety hazard, the subject of which has never been a recall to my knowledge. Tried buying a replacement switch to no avail after installation. When you can get them to actually work, signals never shut off now either; which means they will blink indefinitely if u forget to shut them off. The blink indicator is barely audible and barely visible in the recessed dash except at night. This makes you a hazard to yourself, passengers and other drivers. This same switch controls the wipers and the various settings for wiper speeds are all out of alignment on rotation, which means most of them do not work. The wipers will not shut off w/o various tricks like shutting down the motor altogether. The wiper blades always make a loud dragging, friction scrapping noise unless there is a extreme downpour. Even when replaced w/new ones. These are all serious safety issues.
