2003 Chevrolet Silverado Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 222005

Silverado 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,000 miles


The caller said that when turning on the left turn signal the hazard lights come on. He said they go off when he finishes the turn. It started without warning about nine months ago, but has gotten worse lately. It does not happen every time, but it is happening more often. Dealer and manufacturer claim there is no recall on this vehicle and they will offer no help for free.
