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.

1998 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

I lose my lights after dark while I am driving, the indicator light for the bright lights comes on immediately but there are no brights (no upper or lower beams) however the flashers will work. Sometimes they come back on and sometimes I have to pull over and turn the car off for a few minutes and they come on after restarting the truck. I have lost the lights as much as 6 times during a 15 minute drive. Now I go to my car and I hear a ticking under the dash and have no power to start my truck. However there appears to be power to the truck. I don't know what to do I have already put a lot of money in this truck.
