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.

problem #2

Oct 202011


  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,300 miles


To fix this, in my classic "I have nothing to lose" fashion, I started twisting the AC/Heater knob back and forth rapidly for a few seconds. I did this until the heater worked. Often, I'd turn off the heater and fan when I left my car and found out that when I turned it on again the heater didn't work. So now, I just don't turn the heater off and everything is fine. If it's too hot in the car I roll down the windows. I'm pretty sure it's just a small, easily fixable problem with the mechanism that switches it back and forth from hot to cold and not anything too serious or expensive. I recently bought a Haynes instruction manual for it online, so when it arrives I'll pull it apart and fiddle with it. If I come up with a better solution I'll post it.

On one cold day I was trying defrost the windows to drive my car, so i turn on the heater and it only blew out cold air and never worked since.
