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.

Went out to truck to move it and noticed wipers up on windshield, tried to start it and only check engine light came on, looked under hood to find an electrical burning smell coming from fuse box. Disassembled fuse box to find it was melted and found evidence of combustion, wiring harness connector X2 pin N5 was melted and connector X5 pins G1 H1,2,3,4 K 4,5,6 and J 2,3,4 had melted this is all the damage that I found.
