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 fans makes noise and there is no A/C - heat. Dealership says that it may be the heater control unit. Searched the web and alot of mits. Galants are having this same problem.

I have a 2002 Mitsubishi Galant, the knob that controls the air temperature in the car used to make a clicking noise when being turned from cold to hot & vice versa, it stopped making that noise and now I no longer have heat. I have searched the internet high & low and have found lots of complaints that this is a well known problem for these cars and that it is the heater control motor. I was told to file a complaint about the problem.
