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.

Improper functioning of windshield wipers. While in intermittent position, they will randomly work at normal low-speeds for a few cycles and revert back to the set speed. Also, from time to time they do not work when the switch is turned on the first time (3 times in 1.5 years). When switch is turned off then back on they will start to work. Happens more when the wipers are used for long periods. So they can't replicate it, and if they try a tech has to watch continually for hours and because it's a completely random happening, they could well miss it. Basically when you aren't driving the truck for hours in rain looking through/at the wipers you really don't see it. Vehicle has been in 3 times for this issue. First the grounds and contacts were cleaned, to no avail. The 2nd time the wiper control was replaced, which made it happen less often, but still occurs. Third time was today, was told they could not fix the problem because they could not make it happen.
