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.

1999 Oldsmobile Silhouette Owner Comments

The windsheild wipers, when turned off, will return to the home position as upright, not tucked under the hood as designed. So they are pretty much directly in front of the passenger and driver. Once in a while they will turn off correctly, but then the next time, they won't.

This is driving my wife, so therefore me, nuts. What can be done, short of having someone spend hours (and therefore $) in diagnosing? Somebody else has had to have this problem with the number of these vans that are out there.
