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 took the vehicle back to the dealer and it would not start for them as well. The mechanic stated that the ignition wire code appeared when the vehicle was diagnosed and they made the repair. After the repair was made, while driving 65 mph downhill, the failure recurred. The contact placed the vehicle in neutral and it restarted. The Buick dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. Five days later, the vehicle shut off and failed to restart. The dealer kept the vehicle for five days and stated that the cause of failure was the wiring harness and a burned module. The current mileage is 21,674 and failure mileage was 6,354.
