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.

Turn signals and hazard lights do not work. It started when the weather was getting colder. They eventually may start working. I found if I would wiggle the hazard switch the turn signals would work. I bought and replaced the hazard switch 22624799 and it resolved the problem. This is a recall but it does not include my VIN.

The turn signals would work intermittantly. Dealer said the signals should work again if the hazzard switch is engaged and then disengaged. This did help solve the problem when it would arise. Took the car in for service and they replaced the hazzard switch. This did fix the problem. Another service shop said this has been a common problem for this part due to a bad solder joint in the switch and they have changed out quite a few switches. Looked online to see if there had been a recall on this part in my car type. There is but my car is not listed as one where this fix is aurthorized.
