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.

1.)when vehicle horn is applied it will not shut off unless steering wheel center is punched hard several times to release horn. No crash but hurt hand and wrist while punching steering wheel to shut off horn. Dealers services dept. Diagnosed horn switch circuit open and air bag springs are weak. Dealer replaced the horn pad switch and drivers side steering wheel air bag under warranty at no charge. 2.)wipers will come on infrequently in right turns for no reason. Startling and highly distracting since it the wipers movement is unexpected and comes and goes without rhyme or reason. Dealers services dept. Inspected and performed diagnostic test. Dealer concluded: No codes noted at this time, could not duplicate concern.
