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 recall 05068, clean & inspect wheel sensors, 18 Nov 2005. ABS & traction control warning lights on,16 Jun 2006 (55977 miles). Dealer diagnostic code C0265, ecbm ($925.59 part) and also bpmv ($761.14 part) plus approx 2hrs labor. I asked if it would be safe to disconnect the pump from the ABS system until I could see if the recall would cover this cost, it hasn't happened as of this date. The vehicle has been in operation since this system failure. I now have learned that the relay on the ebcm that controls the power has contacts that weld closed which causes the pump to run continuously. I asked if I could have the old part when I get it fixed and was told no because it must be returned. I also feel that when I was told it may also need the bpmv that the check valve holding the pump pressure could be the true cause of system failure. I feel that people that buy this safety feature should have it work for the life of the vehicle. I also know that the repair costs have since gone up.
