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.

ABS system activates on left front at slow roll. Normal slow stop not safe in traffic. Now happens all the time.I am an automotive tech. At collision restoration in fairfield NJ..the sensor is removable and nd replaceable...if... GM would sell it separately, but they want you to spend $300 for a hub assembly (that you don't need)to get the sensor.

Trailer brake wiring harness. I recently purchased a trailer which required a electronic brake. After having the braking system installed by the manufacturer of the trailer I was informed of the problem with the braking harness on the vehicle. I then called the dealer for more information, they recommended I take it to another trailer dealer and have it looked at. That's when I found out that the wiring harness was only receiving 4 volts, the braking system requires 12 volts.
