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 climate control system allows the user to set fan speeds between levels 1 and 5. In my truck, level 1 no longer works. The problem is that the compressor still runs, but the fan doesn't, so there is no air movement. Though I haven't used fan speed 1 since noticing the problem, I am always concerned that if I do set it to 1 by accident, the air conditioning compressor may fail due to system inbalance, where the refrigerant does not have a proper environment to expand (warm air passing the evaporator). This could lead to the evaporator freezing over, or worse, compressor failure.
