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 car didn't start and the security light was on so I looked in the manual and it said about the chip in the key well come to find out the ignition cylinder had locked up or something. That means you would either have to buy the cylinder and take it to a shop for them to re code your car and key. Or buy a steering column and still have to take it to a shop to re code. Well my uncle has the same car, year and everything same thing happened to his so he rigged it and I've been driving it ever since like that.
