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.

I have a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero gl sedan and the following has just started to happen within the last couple of weeks: Turn signal malfunction that leads to flickering or total failure of the turn signal lights and the indicator on the instrument panel - this is exactly what prompted a 2003 recall for Oldsmobile Alero; model years 2000-2001.

Alero 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,000 miles
The contact stated that the turn signals as well as the hazard warning lights worked intermittently. The vehicle is currently at a dealership for repairs. The dealer offered no diagnosis to the problem. There is a NHTSA recall 03V327000 on earlier model years. Yet his vehicle experienced the same problem as indicated in the recall, but was not included in the recall.
