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.

During normal driving vehicle began to experience rough engine operation, flashing engine indicator appeared on dash and within 15 seconds vehicle stalled out and was braked to a stop on a hillside. All attempts to restart vehicle were fruitless and it had to be towed to the nearest dealer's shop. After two full days in the shop it was determined that the main wiring harness chafed on the side of the transmission and shorted. This blew a fuse, burned out the coil and the throttle position sensor. The solution consisted of repairing and resecuring the harness to prevent chafing, a new coil and a new throttle position switch were installed. Selling dealer indicated that this was the fifth vehicle with this problem. This is obviously a manufacturing/design defect which could be easily avoided. The consequence of this failure could have been much worse if the short and the subsequent loss of power and control occured during highway driving, especially in traffic at high speed.
