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.

2004 Pontiac Grand Am Owner Comments

Grand Am

  • miles


The contact owns a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. The contact stated that the turn signal function intermittently worked. At times, when the contact needed to use the turn signal, the function failed without warning. More than one dealer speculated that the faulty hazard switch may need to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided no remedy. The failure mileage was not available.

Since 2006, turn signal continued to tick after signal arm was at "off." Often the ticking would begin spontaneously, particularly during hot weather above 90 degrees, without using the signal arm, and without making a turn. On August 20th, a hot day, after making a turn, smoke began to come out of the steering column. A local garage, where I had to immediately park the car and jump out, made the necessary repair at the cost of $421.45 to replace a turn signal switch. At this time, the turn signal works fine without extra ticking. The car mileage was at 95486.

Blinker noise keeps (clicking) going after blinker has been turned off. It is intermiittent and stops and starts again every few minutes. I have already had the blinker replaced once last year and already the problem has resurfaced. It is very annoying.

On my 2004 Grand Am I noticed after using turn signal... clicking noise coming from dash behind hazard signal and now smoke has started coming from the steering column with only 78K miles on car... noticed several other complaints of the same problem and that this was recalled on earlier models... shouldn't this recall be extended? contacted GM with no help from them.

The contact owns a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am. The hazard and turn signal lights would not work. On October 24, 2005, the vehicle was repaired at the contact's expense, however, the failure recurred. She spoke to the dealer and they are attempting to charge her for the repair, however, she believes that it is a manufacturer defect for the same part to fail within two years. The current mileage was 86,392 and failure mileage was 41,715.

Turn signal flickers after turn made or even if no turn was made. I noticed vehicles in 2000 had recalls and these were replaced.
