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.

headlights go out when on high beam after a few minutes

Driving down a rural road and the headlights go black...Very scary! We have stopped using our high beams because of this. This needs to be recalled and fixed no matter how old the car is. It is a safety hazard not just to the owners but to all others on the road!

My dash lights came back on that night. I thought great, until I was traveling in a wooded rural area at night and the headlights went out. It was pretty scary. I pulled over and turned off everything said a prayer and restarted the car and the lights came on. I noticed the dash lights were out again. I never wanted them back on again. I never tried to fix any fuses for fear of losing head lights again.

I also have a problem with my lights going off when changing from dim to bright lights, have to click back to dim to have them come back on.

I really notice it on any kind of turns even small turns.

I feel this has to be a factory defect.

  • 40,000 miles

This started a few years ago, but within the past month (my car now has 100000 miles on it) the lights go out while I'm driving. At night. It's frightening. I drove about 30 miles last night in the dark, and they went off 4 times. If I hit the bright switch, they come back on. Hitting the light switch itself does nothing. This is worrisome as I now have a newborn son to drive around. I am plan on trading this POS off next spring, but it has to get me through the winter. Anyone have any ideas?
