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.

While driving a loud clicking noise was heard coming from the front of the vehicle. The consumer drove the vehicle to the dealer for inspection and the mechanic determined that the turn signal unit needed to be replaced. The flasher unit under the dash would click even when the flasher wasn't turned on. When the turn signal was turned off, the clicking would continue under the dash, sometimes at a rapid speed and sometimes at a slower rate). The garage stated that the signal switch seeps power to the flasher.
