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.

This has been an ongoing problem, I used the key fob to open the doors and the car will not start. I have had the car to dealer and they look at me like I am an idiot, they say that it never happened before. I once came out a store and the trunk opened without touching anything, and then wouldn't start. I had car towed to repair shop and it started fine. driving home, radio changed stations without touching. I shut car off and then wouldn't start again, it's like battery dead. But, if I ignore the car for a couple hours the car starts and runs fine. I have refrained from using radio (thinking it was in radio) but got brave and tried it a month ago and everything worked fine. Last night on way home it was dark so lights came on, dash lights dimmed, (as normal) then clock light brightened back to daytime brightness, then dimmed again, This morning it wouldn't start. half the "idiot" lights came on but no response from starter. Took ex's car to work and will try to start when I get home tonight. probably will start!
