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.

heater fan failed to work on lower speeds, high speed fried connector--and wire shorted and burned insulation and melted connector--bought and replaced parts with manufactured updated board and suggested manufacture universal repair replacement connector--tight spot to work in--3 hrs--low speeds work but after 5 min hi connection failed,started to burn internal contact--hi speed very noisy ,but nice to have--NOW--I'm trying to figure out who to fight about poor terminal connections-considering the clip is 75.00--and may not correct the poor contact ,which is a direct to battery hook up--no fuse ?
