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.

1997 Acura SLX Owner Comments

I have the 1997 Acura Slx. I have been having problems with the headlights coming on whenever it gets cold outside. When the temp is 30 degrees or lower the headlights come on by themselves. I have taken the vehicle to see what causes this but no one can correct the problem or even knows what causes the lights to come on. As a result of lights coming on it runs down the battery. I have had the cable wires replaced I have purchased new batteries and the problem has not been resolved. Do you know what could cause this problem?
