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 turn signal would click after the signal would be turned off. This is a true pain in the ass. The length of time it would click would be as high as 10 min after your turn was made. It is a real treat when you are going on a nice long road trip. I got to the point where I didn't want to use my turn signals to turn for fear they would click and clic and click.

This even happened under warranty but the GM shop couldn't find the problem. How I fixed the problem is I jerked the lever up and down about 100 times. I was quite rough with it. I wouldn't recommend this to you for fear of breaking the lever but I didn't care any more and I just wanted it to go away.

After doing this trick several times I fixed my problem
