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.

Century 3.1L

this problem happened about 6 times before it stopped working when changing fuse .i went thru 15 fuses and they would just pop as soon as i put them in.had the car towed home changed the fuse the next day and its been fine for about 2 to 3 months. and now today i was on my way to do my brakes.and the car blew 2 fuses in a 12 mile drive .locally it ran after changing them on the side of the main road. i now its gotta be a short ,but i cant create the problem without city kinda seems like it happens alot when slamming on the brakes and maybe turning hard with brakes on.but also does it driving slow and straight .AND NOW THE HEADLIGHTS THAT HAVE ALWAYS BEEN ON.{DAYTIME RUNNING } NOW ONLY WORK SOME TIMES I HAVE TO HOLD THE HI BEAM LIGHT BACK BECAUSE THOSE WONT GO ON EITHER.THEY WILL EVENTUALLY STAY ON IN HIGH OR LOW............ANYBODY THINK THAT IS THE HIGH LOW BLINKER SWITCH?
