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 windshield wipers do not turn off due to a faulty switch in the wiper motor. The windshield wiper motor was replaced to correct the problem.

A local New York state and aaa approved auto repair shop has information from a national database "alldata", that windshield wipers that do not park or shut off is a common problem in my particular Honda year and model. During a minimal amount of rain or splashing of water from other vehicles the continuing wipers smudges the windshield causing almost zero visibility. Faulty operating windshield wipers/motor will not pass New York state inspection, therefore NHTSA should consider this a safety issue and proceed with a recall.
