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 award-winning Goodwrench dealership finally told us to buy another van! We then took it to an independant auto electrical shop where it was worked on 4 time to the total frustration of everyone. The problem lies in the vehicle security system in which it decides the vehicle is being stolen and disables the fuel injectors. The key has been replaced, the 3(!) integrated circuits involved have been replaced, the computer has been reflashed several times (an intricate process taking about 4 hours) and the problem persists. The paranoia sets in when it is time to turn the vehicle off, because the problem only occurs during initial startup and seems to be fairly random, but more common after sitting overnight
