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.

SINCE SOMETIME IN 2011. MY BATTERY WOULD DIE AND I REPLACED A FEW BATTERIES BEFORE I FIGURED OUT HOW TO PREVENT THE BATTERY FROM BEING DRAINED. THIS HAS BEEN AN ON GOING THING AND NO ONE CAN SEEM TO MAKE IT STOP. I FIGURED OUT HOW TO PREVENT THE PROBLEM BUT NOT HOW TO FIX IT.

IF I SIT IN MY CAR, LIKE TO DROP SOMEONE OFF AND WAIT FOR THEM, WITH THE KEY IN THE CAR. THEN WHEN I TURN THE KEY, THE CAR WILL NOT START. IT DRAINS THE BATTERY. I HAVE TO JUMP START IT.

NOW IF I NEED TO WAIT IN MY CAR, I TAKE THE KEY OUT OF THE IGNITION. OPEN AND SHUT THE DOOR AND THEN IT WILL NOT HAPPEN.

IT'S A PAIN IN THE BUT, IF I FORGET TO DO THAT IT HAPPENS. I HAVE TESTED THIS DOING THAT AT MY MECHANICS SHOP SO, I KNOW IT THE ONLT SOLUTION FOR NOW.

I LOVE MY CAR AND I WOULD BE SO HAPPY IF I COULD SOLVE THIS PROBLEM.
