THE FIRST TIME IT STOPPED WORKING, I THOUGHT MAYBE I HAD JUST A BURNED OUT SIGNAL LAMP, BUT THEN IT STARTED WORKING AGAIN. IT WAS PRETTY RANDOM AT FIRST, BUT NOW IT WILL NOT WORK AT ALL, OR IT WILL START WORKING BLINK TWICE AND THEN JUST STOP. IT MAY BE "DEAD" FOR A LONG WHILE AND THEN JUST START BACK UP. USUALLY IT JUST DOESN'T WORK AT ALL ANYMORE. I HAVE DRIVEN DOWN THE HIGHWAY WITH IT TURNED ON AND IT WILL BE 5-10 MINUTES LATER AND IT WILL START BLINKING AGAIN. I SEE THERE IS/WAS A RECALL FOR THIS EXACT PROBLEM, FOR MODEL YEARS 2000-2001 AND I HAVE A 2001, BUT THEY CLAIM MY VEHICLE IS NOT PART OF THE RECALL. THE RECALL IS 03V327000, OR GM RECALL 03043A. THE A WAS BECAUSE THEY EXPANDED IT TO INCLUDE THESE TWO MODEL YEARS FROM AN ORIGINAL RECALL. I TALKED TO OLDSMOBILE DIRECTLY AND THEY SAY IT IS NOT PART OF THE RECALL. THAT WAS IN A CALL, AND I SENT GM AN E-MAIL DETAILING THIS PROBLEM, BUT I HAVE NOT HEARD ANYTHING BACK FROM THEM EITHER. I WOULD THINK WITH ALL THE OTHER RECALLS THEY HAVE GOING ON, THEY SHOULD JUST ACCEPT THIS ONE AND NOT MAKE A BIG ISSUE OUT OF IT. MORE NEGATIVE PRESS. AS I WAS LOOKING THROUGH THE POTENTIAL ISSUES/RECALLS I DID SEE A FEW OTHER BULLETINS THEY HAD FOR ISSUES ON THAT MODEL YEAR AND VEHICLE, SOME OF WHICH I AM EXPERIENCING AS WELL. I DO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS IS A 14-15 YEAR OLD CAR, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO DRIVE IT FOR A LONG TIME YET.
