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 "highbeam out" light keeps coming on. Dealership (Toyota) where I bought the vehicle from keeps telling me only one set of lights should be on when using the highbeams. After much debate, they replaced the dimmer switch. Unfortunately, I still have the same problem.

Caution: Now my airbag light is coming on because the messed with the steering wheel.

Impala LS 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles

The first time this problem came up is when I turned my highbeams on and all of a sudden my headlights just went completely out. I was able to turn switch off and on quickly that they came back on but I didnt trust my high beams. After a while I was not able to even make the highbeams stick. The only way I can use the high beams is if I hold them on.

When the brights are on the headlights go out completely. Not good at 55mph! When I switch back to dim they come back on. The whole assembly needs to be replaced at $500. So for now just use dim til I can come up with the 500. Wouldn't be so bad if I hadn't just replaced the tie rod and rotors! Seems like I have a lemon!
