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 computer went haywire, causing the car to drain the battery, even when the car is not in use. We got totally stranded with a dead car, and when we went to get a jump, we couldn't find the battery. The computer also caused the hazard lights to come on every time we started the car, and even after we turned the car off, they stayed on (no we didn't accidentally turn them on). The dashboard digital display also went screwy and displayed nonsense characters.
