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.

2002 Buick Le Sabre. When we shut car off the radio stays on and drains the battery. This happened twice to the previous owner but is happening frequently now. We have been disconnecting the battery and it resets when we notice.

Radio stays on after ignition is turned off and runs the battery dead. The only way to shut radio off is to disconnect the battery!!
