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 Parklamp/Running lamp fuse (F6 in trunk compartment fuse block) keeps blowing. This fuse also feeds (believe it or not), the backlight on the instrument panel cluster. When the fuse blows - no running lamps or instrument panel backlight (only the pointers light). It is annoying because the police will pull you over for this. Not to mention the fact that you can't see your speed.

Also, when the backlight is working, the dimmer does not.

DOES ANYBODY HAVE AN IDEA WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE?
