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.

1998 Monte Carlo 29,000 miles, no accidents. Brake lights stopped working except for the third light in the back window. Read on forum a similar issue, lightly massaged the wiring harness going from steering column to turn signal lever, brake lights then began working again.

Monte Carlo

My brake lights (except for raised third brake light) have stopped working and even replacing a brake light switch did not solve the problem. I have just learnt that my brake lights were not working and this is after spending $100 at a dealership to fix the problem!
