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.

S-10 Pickup

I was trained by the wy state patrol, as a former traffic counter. They advised at night when ever I running into wildlife on the road, shut off headlights, put car in N, let off the gas and hold vehicle steady while coast through the wildlife. By shutting the headlights off, wildlife [deer, antelope, elk, moose, etc]., are not blinded and can see. With continus daytime headlights, there have been five occassions, at 75-80 miles per hour, I have had to tip my 1998 S10 pickup, onto 2 wheels and weave my way through 100 or more mule tale deer on highway 85, North of lingle, near my ranch. Sometimes on black ice. Do I have to file a class action law suite to have these damn daytime running lights discontinued? all they are used for are to inform law enforcement whose running illegal drugs or alliens.

Headlights/drl failed. Cannot turn on manually using switch. Fuses ok. All other lighting systems working. Vehicle just eclipsed factory warranty, so will be out of my pocket. Had no choice in buying this automatic headlight system and now am stuck with costly repair.
