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.

problem #2

Jul 152015

Century Custom V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


Driving peacefully down the street and the horn honks, softly, but audibly; indicator lights--service engine soon, trac off, security, etc--go on and off randomly. If I can. I pull over and turn the car off. Start it again and no lights come on. Drive a little, more lights, horn honks twice this time, etc etc. Now a serious issue because it won't start at all. Have an after-market remote start unit which I'll get checked first. I see other owners have had similar issues. Any known fix? Is this related to the car's computer? It also has window issues but I've been blaming the car's age for that, now I see others have window issues too. Any help out there?

  • Automatic transmission

My "park, drive, reverse, neutral..." and mileage lights all went out, so I can't tell if I'm in neutral or drive, unless I'm actually moving!!! Won't show how many miles are actually on the car anymore!!! Now my A/C lights are starting to go out. My trunk won't open with the Fob. My windows get stuck!! One of the dome lights won't come on!!!!
