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.

The audio issues run a lot for the 745 as they cost a lot to replace. When my Navigation system failed (located in the trunk) it cost $300 to get another used one. Then that logic 7 amp is a fortune to replace and the ask-cd system is just a bother. You know these things failed because the audio in the car will either have static, some speakers don't work, or it cuts in and out with possibly a popping noise. A good way to test it is buy this thing called a fiber lollipop tester, it just hooks into the fiber connection for the devices that you think may be failing and turns them off. Thus if the audio starts to work you know that was the failing device.
