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.

On the date above I tried to have repairs made to keep the alarm system from auto-activating. It did so repeatedly in days prior to the service date. After replacing a hood switch for $123.28, the problem happened again the next morning. Having no faith in the Florida dealer who was far from my home in Kansas, I removed the fuse disabling my horn and making it possible to not disturb my neighbors while the alarm continued to frequently go on. Only the lights flashed. After my return home a local dealer tried to repair the alarm system finding a door switch to be the problem. When I returned later to complain that the problem was still there and I got ongoing, unexplainable alarm sounds that caused me to have to remove the horn fuse each time, the dealer checked my car and told me the main computer must be replaced at a cost of about $700. I asked to have the alarm disconnected and was told if so I would lose the use of my horn. The factory told me that because my warrenty was lapsed by 2 months I had no recourse. They made a one time offer of replacing the computer for almost $300 good for 60 days. I only want my horn to operate for safety and it can not!
