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.

Turn signal switch clicking, when after using the turn signal and during driving. I took it to the dealership they said it was the turn signal switch. I see that in December 2004 GM issued a policy covering turn signal/hazard flasher for a replacement. We did not receive a letter about this. I would like you to look into this and see if the 2004 Grand Am is also included in this recall, if so how do I go about to get the dealership the proper papers to fix this issue at "no cost" to me. This has been an occurring issue since early 2009, I just had time today to get it to the dealership to have it looked at, because the clicking is getting worse.

Was driving down I-80 in Ohio and my turn signal click began clicking nonstop, then stopped. It continues to randomly click, sometimes fast, sometimes like the turn signal speed, but with no consistency or predictability. The turn signal lights are not flashing, just the clicking sound. I've found multiple instances where Grand Am owners are experiencing this issue and supposedly there was a recall on 00-01 models for it, but none that I can find for an 04. The research I've found is that more than just 00-01 owners are having this problem and seems widespread enough to warrant a recall on the part. I'm currently researching pricing for a replacement multi switch (turn signal/wiper combo switch) which was the fix for this problem according to the information I've found.

I have an '04 Grand Am and there is a constant ticking (sounds like coming from hazard light button). It is always on and doing a search on the internet it sounds like it is the multi function switch which was recalled in older models why is this not being recalled if the problem still exists. I have a friend who's car (Grand Am also) does the same thing. I don't feel I should have to replace this when it has been an ongoing problem for years.

My 2004 Grand Am is having several ongoing problems. It wont start and when it does it dies constantly. I almost ran into a ditch after it lost power going 50 mph. Another time it lost power in the middle of a three lane street with a green light. I was barley missed by two different vehicles going 45mph. My Pontiac Grand Am' has a security problem involving a passlock failure. I got in my car today, and it wouldn't start again. Pontiac says to turn the key on for 10 min and reset the computer every time I try to start my car. I work late nights. I can't take the chance to see if its going to start or I have to sit in the dark for ten minutes and wait for my car to start. I also have had to replace the hazard relay and the multifunction rely like hundreds of other Grand Am owners. In 2003 Pontiac recalled cars with the same issue. Im not sure why they aren't taking care of the 2004 problems.

Clicking noise in dash panel to which I can't seem to find. It sounds like switch clicking on and off. The lights on the interior flash sometimes and also after the car is turned off, and were sitting outside, the headlights and or park lights flash on and off every few seconds or so. Could be a future fire hazard.

Clicking noise coming from dashboard. From researching internet other consumers have same problem said they were told it was multi-function switch. I had not heard the clicking before just started all of a sudden. I have not had it fixed yet because I didn't know what was causing it.
