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.

This is the fifth (5th) time I have had to replace this item in this vehicle. Last time I was told it might be caused by a short in the blower motor so I replaced the blower motor with one that is much louder. Turns out that was not the problem.

I think it must be a spike in the voltage or current (don't know enough about electronics to know which). The fuse does not blow however. I am thinking of putting an inline choke (I believe it is called this, to regulate whatever it regulates) or a fast blow fuse.
