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.

Yes I have a 2001 Dodge Neon and when I drive it will just quit on me, when it quits on me, there are no headlights, nothing. But when the car quits I can get out and play with the postive cable wire and everything comes back on. I have taken my car into the Dodge company here in red bluff and chico and they could not find the cause of promblem. This is a problem to me... I put the start date below and this problem happens sometimes everyday or every other day.
