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.

P0410 code: Haven't been able to get this vehicle inspected in 2 years. Replaced a.I.R. pump and alternator to no avail. Cleared code but always comes back after 50 miles of driving. Seems to be a false P0410 code since pump is actually functioning and going through startup tests when vehicle first started. Skeptical about taking vehicle to GM dealerships. There's always seem to be another "failure" after you drive from dealerships.

Turn signal failure on a daily basis. I drive on a highway 80 miles a day. The turn signals may blink rapidly, normally, or not work at all. This can all occur within a few miles. However, when I took them to a repair shop, they could not duplicate the problem. This has been going on for over a year. I have also had to replace the air pump that pumps air into the emissions system twice, and it is still having problems. The car runs fine, but the engine light is on all the time. I also have the problem with the dimming lights which is caused by the air pump switching on and off.
