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'm sure about dates, all I know is one day when I had the car stopped (idling at a stop sign, fixing the radio, notice how i'm still stopped!), I suddenly smelled smoke or something, when I looked the light was about half a MM away from 125 degrees.... (as far as the hand can go!!), since then I haven't heard the cooling fan cut in since!, it's *&#$ing annoying... I've taken it to several mechanics and nobody can figure it out... the sensor it ok, relay switch is good, when you take the wires and put them on something the fan goes around.... so the fan WORKS, the sensor and relay are good... what the eff is going on here ... anybody have the same problem?
