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.

I was driving around with a friend and went to put the ac on, but it didn't work, then noticed that my music had never turned on either. It always starts playing when I start the car, and when I leave my drive way I always stop it to hear for traffic. So I thought I just forgot to turn it back on, but it wouldn't turn on. No sign of power. I stopped the car inspected the wiring in the steering column (I had the plastic loose from earlier when I was working on my horn), and started it, and everything (ac/music) decided to work.
