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.

The fog lamps stay on even when the switch is in the "off" position. I have read many other owner's complaints of the same problem. This has resulted in my battery being drained twice.

2005 PT CRUISER GT convertible with 50,000 miles.I looked out the window and noticed fog lights on. The fog lights cannot be turned on without the headlights being on. But here was the fog lights on and it drained my battery completely. The only way I could turn the fog lights off was to tape the universal switch, so that the fog light switch was forced to close. After see how many people have had the same problem for several years, I am wondering why the NHTSA doesn't do something about this.

Fog lamps remain on when switch is in the off possition. This problem has been identified in many "pt" forums on the internet. The solution is the replacement of the multifunction switch that controls all the lights.
