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.

While going down the road everything electrical will shut down (headlights, radio, dashboard lights and so on). Then the car will jerk as if it has died. Then all the dummy lights will come on and go back off and the car resumes running as if nothing has occurred.

CRAP! I'm beginning to hate this car!

Update from Oct 1, 2009: Turns out that the technician who installed my CD player cross threaded my positive battery connection and that was causing the problem.
