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 contact owns a 2002 Buick Century. While driving 50-55 mph at night, the headlights automatically illuminated. When the contact activated the high beams, the headlights went out completely. She had to activate the headlight switch again in order for them to operate. Occasionally, the high beams will turn on, but other times, they will not. The dealer stated that the entire multi-function switch needed to be replaced. The switch was replaced, but the contact believes that a recall should be issued. The failure mileage was 67,000 and current mileage was 72,000. Updated 05/08/09 updated 05/12/09. Updated 06/09/09.

The contact stated that while driving the headlights failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealership. They could not be repaired because the dealership could not duplicate the problem. The contact has been having problems with the headlights for about a month. When driving the vehicle at night the headlights go off, some times if he wiggled the switch the lights would come back on. He contacted the manufacturer, and they said there was no data of this occurring on other vehicles. Updated 11/29/05.
