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.

The p code is p0443 saying it is electrical but I can't find any breaks or frays anywhere in the brown wire it says is the problem. when jumped the high side works. but using the a/c the low side still doesn't work. I just paid 150 to diagnose and fix and nothing is fixed. All I got was a new temp. sensor. Anyone have suggestions?

A few Google searches showed me what the problem was; then all I had to do was order the part (it wasn't exorbitant if I remember correctly) and follow a tutorial to fix it. This was a bit of a difficult fix - I'm a normal-sized guy, and not particularly car-savvy; it was tough to contort my body in such a way as to get to the part I needed to replace. But, in the end, I was glad I fixed this myself instead of taking it to the shop and spending $200.

I was driving to the store with the fan control on 2 in the defrost/heater mode. Came out started up the car, drove away and noticed that i had no heat.So i pull over and the fan was off in 2.I get home and restart the car and nothing!!.1,2,3,4 fan control settings were shot!! WTF!! I never saw it coming. Almost the same thing that happened to my '99 grand am gt.. and a buddy who had a 2000. I figured it was a recall, so i look it up and of course it's not... what a piss off!! I hope it's just the control and nothing else!! It's too damn bad im out of warranty. Im sure this has happened to a LOT of people. So this problem seems unavoidable.
