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.

The insulation covering the wires going to the daytime running lamps (angel eyes) bulbs has split and caused a short or an arc which has visibly burned and melted the plastic connector to the bulb and caused the light to malfunction and produce warnings inside the car. This seems like a dangerous situation. Even more so because power continues to flow through the wires as evidenced by the fact that jiggling the wires sometimes makes the bulb light up.

Approximately one month ago my entire set of right rear lights went out on my car. I called the dealership and they said it was not covered under warranty. I took to aaa and they couldn't figure out what was wrong but got lights working, they thought just loose wires. A week or so ago stopped working again. Took back to aaa and they said it had to be the whole board for lights and to take to dealer. I then read online that there is a recall for my year/model of car for rear tail lights. Now my left taillight is entirely not working. My VIN is not included in recall so I have to pay for this which I don't think is right as clearly this is a larger issue. Please help.

I received a displayed message there was a malfunction with the rear lamp. When checking the tail light assembly and wiring, I noticed the connector on the tail lamp assembly was melted (plastic) where the brown ground wire connected. The male/female connector parts got so hot that the plastic connector was melted where the ground wire connects. This was on the drivers side, but it is likely the passenger side would have the same problem. The heat generated to melt the plastic connector could cause the ground wire to burn and the brake/rear lights to fail. With a failure of the rear lights, an accident could happen.
