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.

2003 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

problem #4

Grand Am 6-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


The ticker sound that is usually associated with the flashers or turn signal continues incessantly when neither function is activated. Sound comes from behind hazard button, but mechanics have advised replacing the multifunction switch in the steering column. They have warned that the situation will worsen and perhaps cause brake light problems if not corrected.

The contact owns a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am. After the contact turned the steering wheel with the turn signal activated, the signal clicking sound continued. Occasionally, the sound would stop after a few seconds, and at other times, it would continue. The clicking sound would also occur when the vehicle was started. The vehicle has not been taken to the dealer. The current mileage was 181,000 and failure mileage was 179,000. *updated 04/30/08 the consumer stated the fuse box is also giving her problems sometimes the gauge lights will not come on and may not start after attempting to fix the defect.

Turn signal switch will continue to click even when the turn signal is not on. At first it would only happen very rarely and only click a few times after a bump. Now it will click constantly when tha car is on. GM will not fix the problem, and they want $300+ dollars. Many Pontiac owners have posted webstie complaints. The "multifunction" switch needs replaced.

: the contact stated the exterior passenger side turn signal operated on its own. The contact was alerted by other drivers of this problem. The vehicle was taken to the dealership, where it was determined the malfunction switch needed to be replaced.
