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.

Wipers and turn signals stop working and then come back on when they get ready. Malfunctioning.

Windshield wipers will turn on randomly. This issue happens in all weather conditions and will cycle twice before shutting off. Because this is not during any specific condition dealers would need to take the truck and drive it until the issue arose.

I noticed that the windshiled wipers would come on by it self, as time went on the dashboard lights and stereo would go off for about 4 seconds; later the horn would blow and the wipe fluid would squirt, then I would get a aweful shock when I touch the gear shifter. All these occur whenever I start the truck after sitting for more than 7 hours, then at any given time while driving with at least 4-5 times and ever increasing as mileage travelling.

Windshield wipers turn on unexpectedly while the vehicle is moving obscuring the driver's vision which could lead to a loss of control or crash.
