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.

The fan speed selector wiring plug in the passenger side compartment started smoking when the fan was on speed 5. I got it turned off and looked at it when I got home and found the plug at the hot wire and the hot wire (red one) were melted. It happened at 37590 miles. Could happen to more vehicles.
