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.

My 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier day time running lights (drl) quit working!. when you put the car into gear, you hear a clicking noise, (maybe a relay switch)? and the drl icon on the dash flashes about 5 or 6 times along with the headlights and the drl turned off, and the service engine light comes on, when you turn off the car and restart it the service light is off, must reset. Also the right side high beam head light does not work after the drl flash and go out(right side if you are facing the front of the car that is) replaced the right side head light and still have the same problem. Day time running lights are a safety feature for my car and they are not working, the dealer wants $100 bucks just to hook my car to a machine to tell me whats wrong with it, after the last trip to the dealer for a check engine light, that cost me $180 dollars just to tell my wife to tighten the gas cap when you fill up the car.(nice hu?) im not a happy camper. After doing a little research on the internet I see that cavilers have a drl problems all over the place. Why is there not a safety recall for day time running lights? after all they are a safety feature and do save lives, by making the smaller cars more visable to other drivers. With only one high beam head light working and no drl's my car has become a safety hazard for my wife and daughter, and even my self to drive. Please help by asking GM to recall this safety problem before some one get S hurt or even killed.
