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.

Sometimes while driving, a brake circuit warning comes up on the display. The brake lights work fine. From what I've read it's the brake pedal switch so I'm going to try spraying it with cleaner first, & if that doesn't work, I'll replace it & hopefully that will do the trick.

Update from Oct 19, 2012: I replaced the brake pedal switch & that fixed it. Cheap, easy fix.
