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.

Hi I know many of you have a problem with service traction control and ABS lights coming on and you have probably have been told the speed sensor is bad or the wheel bearing needs to be changed. I know I have been there and have changed 4 front drivers side wheel bearings and the problen kept coming back. By luck I was at my mechanics when we figured out the problem and you won't believe it but it was the brake switch behind the brake pedal. He had the scanner hooked up and cleared the computor and everytime he steped on the brakes the lights came on and the crimes rang. I replaced the 10.00 switch that I bought at napa and the problem has never happened again and thats been months ago. Have someone check that first by clearing the codes with a scanner then pressing the brake and see if the dash lights come on or the crimes ring.

The water shocked my Body Control Unit, and nothing worked. i had the BCM replaced which fixed the problem until it rained again and the ABS/traction control lights came on again. now the coolant level low light is on whenever the car is running (the radiator and over flow is full to capacity).
