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.

Grand Am 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 62,000 miles
Hazard flasher switch was replaced on 3/9/07 because of a constant clicking like the turn signal being on. This did not stop the clicking but slowed it down. The clicking was still there, and traced to the steering column-turn signal switch. Some days this was constant, others it was slow but very annoying.

Turn signals and flashers do not work intermittently. They don't work more often then they do. The dealership could not duplicate (don't think they really tried) I am concerned that when I really need the hazard flashers they wont work, it is dangerous to not use blinkers and hand signals are harder to see.

Hazard flasher failure in multiple 2002 cars including mine. (I worked for a local dealer for 10 years and now a local repair shop for 3 years)I have seen multiple hazard flasher failures in Pontiac Grand Am, Chevy Malibu, olds Alero. Also I know there is a recall on the 2001 Malibu for this failure and it uses the same part #. why no recall?? for customers paying for this is a inconvenience. The part was cheap for me but a customer should not have to pay for this!.
