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.

My car will not unlock reliably via the remote control or the center unlock/lock button. I can't get into the car when this problem happens. The general module(GM5) is going bad and the car will only unlock when it feels like it. From what I understand this is a normal issue with my 2003 BMW 330I. Hopefully BMW will file a recall on this item so I don't have to pay the $790 the dealership charges for this known problem.
