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 my car on the highway and my ABS light came on. Took it to a automobile repair place on 8/26/04 they found code C1214 solenoid relay ckt open. Connector to ebcm was not completely on. They reinstalled. Then on 3/22/05 ABS light came on again while driving on highway. Took it to auto repair shop found code C1214 sollenoid relay coil or contact circuit open. They checked connections and replaced fuse. The ABS light went on again on 4/30/05 same.

Two days ago, my ABS (anti-lock brake system) warning light came on. I took it to the shop and they diagnosed that my electronic brake control moduel (ebcm) was bad and that I needed a new one. Given that my car is a 2001 Cavalier with less than 47,000 miles, they said this was very unusual. Repairs will be outrageousely expensive.
