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.

1) just happened. 2) the resister in the blower motor circuit shorts out. Which causes the wiring harness to burn up melting the plastic at the connector to the resister and the black wire leading to the resister. 3) I had to replace the resister to the circuit and splice in a new wiring harness for the resister.

No prior warnings that anything was wrong with the truck, truck suddenly lost power and died. Transported to dealership was determined mouse nest under ubec, wires chewed and full of mouse urine which caused a short. Box that contains this part is very accessible to rodents. Fortunately, this happened in the driveway, on the road I would have had no steering or brakes, and possible fire.

The fuel pump and the fuse blew out. This occurred while the consumer was driving on September 17, 2005. There was no warning before this occurred. The dealership was the one that diagnosed the problem. They replaced the fuel pump and the pcmb fuse. The problem has not recurred since.
