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.

The rear door will not open and is locked in place. It was a very hot day and I could not get my luggage out of the back of the car because the door would not open and there was no manual switch to unlock the door from the inside.

Air conditioner began making loud noise with accelaration, than within a few moments began blowing hot air. The compressor and clutch were replaced and within 1 week the problem began again. I know 7 people with GM vehicles and they all are having the same problem with their ac's. it seems to only be a problem when there is high humidity. However when I went to return the faulty compressor and clutch I had purchased it seems they are on nation wide backorder. It seems to me there is a problem here.

Dec 24 2004 I returned to my parked car and started the engine, the front defrost blowers went to high speed and would not shut off. At my next stop I stopped and restarted the car several times but the fan kept running. Removing the keys opening the door did nothing. After removing the fuse to the front havc the fan stopped but started again when the fuse was re-installed. After returning home I disconnected the battery for a half hour the fan stayed off, the controls worked properly. Dec 28th stopping for gas, I turned the car off but the fan cam on again at full speed. I checked on line and it seems several people are having the same problem but the dealers have not come up with a fix. At this time I have pulled the fuse to keep the fan from blowing but it's too cold to be driving with no heat or defrost in the car. When I get home where I have tools I will again disconnect the battery.
