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.

On occasion, when turning off the wipers, they would come to a stop in a complete vertical position, which obstructed vision, and made me look like a complete moron driving down the road with them up (surprised I never got a ticket!)

I've heard that there's a small "park" tab on the wiper transmission that a limit switch strikes, which should cause it to stop. This tab wears down and rounds off, making it unusable.

I don't know if that fix works or not because I traded that car in for my wonderful Impala (which you can find on this site under Lights and Transmission problems, along with others).

Just really would like it fixed! Wish that it would be covered under some kind of warranty! Don't have the money to pay for it!

All I had to do was change the fuse myself. It's not hard and for sure cheaper than taking it to a shop.

Just one day all of a sudden when I turned my windshield wipers off, they stopped in the middle of my windshield. We took it to the shop where he said that we needed some piece replace. Somehow it had bent. They were going to charge $350.00. He looked my dad in the eye and said, "Sir, you cannot just bend the piece back." My dad said, "Ok." We went home, my dad bent the piece back, and it's been 3 years and we've never had another problem with it.
