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.

High beam headlights come on erratically unexpectedly without driver interaction. As for example soon as engine starts, while driving or after making a turn with turn signal. Have had numerous oncoming drivers blare their horns or flashing their lights at me. This is a safety hazard not only for myself but for other drivers. Have spoken to GM regarding this issue and they told me not great enough percentage to warrant a recall. Seems like just more bs from GM not standing behind their products for things that should not occur. Have spoken online with numerous users with same issue. I've had this issue for several years and has gotten worse with the occurrence frequency that it happens. Use to be only during colder months but this year has been occurring during the warmer months as well.

Reference recall 14V755 Nov 25, 2014, I experienced this problem in February 2014 while driving home at night on a back road with little traffic. I was going 45 mph and suddenly pitch black. I thought quickly thought to hit my high beams. After spending money, replaced the relay and the following July it completely melted down, burning up my fuse box and several wires in the harness while parked in my driveway without keys in it. I happened to walk out and smelled it burning. I was able to remove the positive battery terminal. Clearly it was the (hdm) headlight relay stated in this recall. (photo attached).I've spent about $1500 in repairs. There are many blogs with the same problem and burned up a lot worse than mine. It seems to be a regular problem ending with fires in the fuse box.

Campaign id number15V-519 recall 14291 the left headlight keeps burning out and this recall is suppose to fix that situation but the local dealers say no solution has been found. What are the owners of these vehicles suppose to do. I have place 4 or 5 lights in this car to date. A solution surely has been found. If not GM should buy the car.

Received recall notice for hdm module. Dealer wanted to charge for repairs, contacted GM, they contacted dealer and I was told to bring car in for temp. Repair, at no charge which is what was stated on recall notice I received. I did so just to find that night that nothing had changed. Contacted dealer and GM to get the same result. I was told that I would have to pay for repairs or wait for a permenant fix. New switches might be bad but usually will last a while before doing so. Dealer never ask to see car to follow up on previous "repair" and GM seems to be taking there side. I don't know whats going on but head lights going out while driving down the highway is very dangerous. I'm very disappointed in GM and this dealer. I can only hope that someone is paying attention to this as I am sure I am not the only one at risk with this problem.
