car   Tail Light Switch problem 2
Failure Date: 04/04/2016

"takata recall" we just purchased this car from my husband's deceased mother's estate and it had a recall on the lighting inside and outside tail lights. The vehicle has 83 thousand miles on it and the vehicle rear lights are not working when I brake only one that is is the third light on top of car. Gm (Chevrolet) I live on a very limited income and due to disability as well. My income is 1330 a month. How can I get this fixed? they want to charge me for diagnostics, as I stated we fixed it once it seems to be that it may get hot and blows fuses and then I have no idea I have no tail lights this is very dangerous and someone could rear end me and kill themselves and or myself. Please help me in understanding are they responsible to fix their defects as they did it once when it was recalled and we also just bought this car. Paid about 5 thousand for it. Excellent condition. Other than the lighting system not working only on and off. I have not had an accident but I do not want to have a accident. I find it unfair that they dont want to fix the problem unless they are paid because apparently it is a problem that is and will recur. We have actually fixed the problem once but apparently something is wrong that we cannot secure the issue properly. Kindest regards carolyn otoole.

car   Tail Light Switch problem 5
Failure Date: 01/02/2004

2003 Chevrolet trail blazers, which have frequent failures in both tail lights, including brake lights, turn signal indicators and reverse lights due to faulty boards which do not apply enough tension to hold the bulb in place. The bulb does not burn out, it just becomes loose. This should result in a complete recall, not what gm has called a special policy condition. Failed rear lighting is a significant safety issue that the NHTSA should deem as a recall.
