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.

this means no fan blower until you get to three on the dial; no air, not nice during record heat waves

problem #1

(reported on)

Grand Prix 3.2 V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,000 miles

The resistor that controls many of the interior lights, the heater fan only on 1st and 2nd speed and the ability of the lights to flash when locking/unlocking the doors with the remote control, was fried. Another common problem for this vehicle according to my mechanic. He knew right away what was going on since he has replaced so many of them.
