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.

when ignition is ON but engine not started, directional and hazard lights function correctly. When I start the engine, the lights do light but are stationary and do not blink. This is a mandatory safety issue for inspections here so it will not pass this month as is. Changed the ignition switch after checking with a couple independent mechanics but this does not correct the problem. I had changed the hazard switch a couple years ago since it was bad then. I'm at a loss what is causing the problem.
