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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The vehicle was parked inside our attached garage. I went through the garage when going out to work in the yard. The vehicle was not running at the time. When I returned to the garage 5 minutes later to get an extension cord I discovered the van was running and the doors were locked, it appears it remote started without a request for remote start. Neither key fob was in a purse or pocket at the time. I had to run into the house to get my key fob that was located in the bedroom to shut the vehicle down. The other key fob was on the kitchen counter and had not been disturbed. The van would have kept running could have filled our home with carbon monoxide. Both our kids were inside napping at the time and their mother was inside the house nowhere near either key fob.

My wife went to the car to unlock it the horn began blaring, locks going up and down, lights flashing, wiper fluid spraying everywhere, and the car actually started up w/O the key in the ignition and we do not have a remote starter on the vehicle. I arrived and removed the battery cable and it all stopped. After a few minutes I replaced the cable and was able to start the vehicle without incident. I was driving it home at approximately 65 mph and the vehicle suddenly started doing the same thing but the car cut off and I lost all steering and braking ability but was able to coast to the side parkway I was on. I removed the cable and replaced it and drove home without incident took the key out but the van would not shut off. One night of the issue we were awakened by the vehicles horn and when I went outside it was doing the same thing and the car was running in the driveway. She refuses to drive it and now we are stuck with a useless vehicle sitting in the driveway.. fed up with this situation there needs to be someone held accountable, dealership was no help at all!! " they say the don't know what the problem is how can that be !"????" seeing that there are thousands of van owners like me with the same problem!!!!!
