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.

The contact owns a 2008 Chevrolet Equinox. The contact stated that the vehicle would not start and the would exhibit an unusual clicking when attempting to start. In addition, all of the warning lights would illuminate upon the failure. The vehicle was towed to the dealer where the dealer was unable to duplicate the failure. The dealer made adjustments to the stabilizer yet the failure persisted. The dealer then installed a new battery and made adjustments to the stabilizer a second time. The failure persisted and the stabilizer warning light was also illuminated. Neither the dealer nor manufacturer was notified of the most recent failure nor was the vehicle repaired. The failure mileage was 40,000.
