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.

ABS light comes on and off at its own will then the regular brake light came on only when it was really cold outside. Took it to the mechanic and there was nothing actually mechanically wrong with either system it was an electrical problem in the computer the rewired the ABS ground wire and light hasn't come back on since. However I had to take the car back to the dealer twice to get it fixed. $70 per each diagnostic.
