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.

Noticed the problem in the warmer months, now that colder weather has set in I am unable to defrost the windshield while driving making the visibility low. I have researched the internet and there are hundreds of similar complaints with the heater doors on the pickups.

The wiper stopped working except for a very slow speed when the selector was in the "high" position. After several minutes, this also stopped working. The turn signal began to malfunction at the same time leading me to believe the column multifunction switch was at fault. When activating the left turn signal, the right signal would often turn on instead of the left. Auto parts stores informed me that the multifunction switch is not currently available at any price.

Driving down the road while it was raining and windshield wiper just stop working had 30 mile to get home without windshield wipers. Had two kids in the car. I work for the fire dept and need my truck. Took it to the dealer to find out it was the tipm and there was no quick fix and that they fail all the time. Cost is over a 1000. Bucks.
