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.

Electrical problems when turn blinker on it locks and unlocks doors. When vehicle is off the buzzer stays on continuously, been told that it could possibly catch fire.. possible ground wire.. need to know what I can do.. this shouldn't be doing this.. just purchased this vehicle a year ago.. paid cash no extended warranty.. should this be happening.. I'm taking it to york Ford in houlton Maine to have a diagnostic test done on it.. this vehicle is only 5 years old.. why would it have any electrical problems.

- the contact has a 2003 Chevrolet Venture in which he had to replace the climate control switch because the fan switch stayed only on the low position, allowing for only one setting. The contact bought the replacement part and replaced the climate control switches on his own. While replacing the switches he noticed that the old unit had melted the plastic around the wire harness. The contact also had to replaced the left rear tail light assembly because it had completely corroded which made it inoperable. The contact is looking for reimbursement for the parts. The contact spoke with the manufacturer who stated that they wouldn't be able to consider any type of reimbursement because he didn't take the vehicle to a dealer to have it repaired. The failuer and current milage were 75000 miles.

Consumer complained of rear end problem. Consumer maintained that manufacturer never sealed the back end of the vehicle. As a result, water leaked into the vehicle. The manufacturer refused to repair the defect. However, the manufacturer was willing to dry out the vehicle. Also, a moldy mildew smell lingered within the vehicle. Mold was all through the ceiling as well as blowing through the rear vents, the back end leaked, the roof rail seams and pitch rail were not sealed, water leaked into the rear dome light and leaked onto the floor in the rear, the tires were replaced at 18K miles, the #2 and #3 fan relay shorted, the front end had excessive play, and the front windshield seal had come loose from the glass.
