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.

26sep12 the tire pressure monitoring system will provide a false failure when there is certain electrical interference (e.g. cell towers). This is a recognized fact as noted in the driver's manual (P.71). The issue is that the system fails to reset after the interference has passed and all of the failure lights remain on for an indeterminate period of time (from 2 hours to 3 days) before automatically resetting. Absent this resetting the car is unsafe as, without a warning system for tire failure (either low pressure or tread failure), an accident could occur. The dealer offered no solution as the computer does not register a system incident and all systems passed a computer check on 16aug.. BMW North America ([xxx]) could not provide any further assistance. A properly functioning reset system is needed to insure safe operation of the motor vehicle. Thank you for your time.
