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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD ON MY WAY HOME, DASH LIGHTS GO OUT. I GET HOME CHECK THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE, BLOWN. REPLACE FUSE, SOON AS I HIT THE BRAKE PEDAL FUSE BLEW INSTANTLY.. HAD TO DRIVE TRUCK EVERYDAY WHEN I WOULD COME TO A LIGHT I WOULD JUST TURN ON THE RUN LIGHTS.FINALLY REPLACED THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH. FIXED THE PROBLEM FOR A DAY OR SO THEN NO BRAKE LIGHTS AGAIN. SOON AFTER THAT ALL REAR LIGHTS WENT OUT.

I PULLED THE ENTIRE DASH OUT OF TRUCK, FOUND A SHORT WIRE HARNESS RUNNING FROM THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH TO THE MAIN WIRING HARNESS WAS BROKEN. I REMOVED THE SMALL HARNESS TOOK IT TO THE DEALER WHERE I BOUGHT THE TRUCK, BOB PULTE CHEVROLET. SHOWED THE BROKEN HARNESS TO THE MAIN PERSON IN SERVICE. I REALLY EXPECTED HIM TO RUN GET ME A NEW HARNESS SINCE I PAID MORE FOR THIS TRUCK THAN I DID FOR MY HOUSE. HE LOOKED AT MY BROKEN HARNESS AND JUST GAVE ME A SILLY LAUGH. I DIDN'T THROW A FIT OR SAY ANYTHING BUT BOY WAS I PISSED. I TOOK THE HARNESS HOME PEELED THE WIRES SOLDERED THEM AND REPLACED IT. BRAKE LIGHTS ARE FIXED. THIS IS MY 3RD NEW TRUCK I PURCHASED AT BOB PULTE CHEVROLET, SURE WISH GM HAD RECALLED ALL 1998 TRUCKS FOR THIS HARD TO FIX PROBLEM. THIS JOB TOOK ME A WHOLE DAY TO COMPLETE.
