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.

About 4 months ago, the passenger side headlamp harness melted, and almost caught fire. I had it replaced, and thought of it as a "one off" type situation. However, recently, the driver side did the same exact thing! upon research, I found that it is happening all over the place to them. I am not an isolated incident. The real danger here is this- what happens if both melt at the same time"?" aside from the danger of fire, the larger, more pressing danger is losing both lights at once. The consumer (driver) would essentially be blind, and in the panic may not think to turn the high beams on. This is a real problem, and if not addressed could have dire consequences. I implore you to research how many headlamp harnesses have been sold (as the only reason to replace would be because of this) and address it before someone loses sight, and crashes. Something so small, would really be a tragedy to have a loss of life over. When the fix is simply using a bigger wire that can handle the amps. Hopefully nobody has been injured yet!

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.
