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.

Refer to date investigation opened: Sep 25, 2014 date investigation closed: Open NHTSA action number: DP14004 component(s): Electrical system my wife noticed it first and I have noticed this. It started when not moving but now continues while driving. The windshield wipers wipe even though they are off, the air bag light and total dash lights, we can't tell how fast we are going because of the gauge failure and the headlights blink among other electrical problems. This is not a good situation with 4 kids in the vehicle.
