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.

2001 Pontiac Montana Owner Comments

problem #1

Apr 152005

Montana 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 99,000 miles


Noticed that when the headlights were on and the turn signal was activated to the left or right that the turn signal indicator on the instrument panel was blinking as though my hazards were on. With the turn signal on, I circled the vehicle and observed that the commanded light was blinking appropriately but the opposite light was also blinking dimly. I proceeded to disassemble each turn signal indicator to search for corrosion or other damage and discovered that there was charring on the right rear circuit card at the connector. I contacted my Pontiac dealer inquired if there was a recall for such an item and they told me no. I bought the part from Pontiac installed it myself and have had no further trouble. I have seen other vehicles in traffic at night with evidence of the same indicator problem.
