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.

Fortunately, my complaint does not involve any deaths, injuries or crashes. My inquires regarding an electrical problem have gone unanswered and before I spend a great deal of money having my dash board disassembled, I am turning to you to see if you have received any related complaints.

The turn signals continue to click when not in use. I took it to the mechanics and it was diagnosed as a multifunction control switch, which is $200 Canadian for the part alone only available at the dealer. It is 2.5 hrs of labour to replace it as the steering wheel has to be pulled.

I owned the car for 2 years, and in the 2 years the dome lamp fell down 4 times. It just recently fell down again on the 16 of July. I parked the car outside of my house and in the morning the dome lamp was hanging by the wires. The first time it happened I went to eat at a restaurant, and when I was done I got into the car and saw the dome lamp hanging by the wires.

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am with 40,000 miles on it. The other day I was signaling a lane change and now the clicking sound behind my hazard warning switch is constantly on and off. Sometimes my hazard lights and turn signals turn on and off by themselves. Not only are these things very annoying but are dangerous. I know this has been a problem on earlier model years of my vehicle and an investigation was conducted for those vehicle. This is an ongoing problem that the manufacturer refuses to correctly address. Please expand your investigation to more model years of my vehicle.
