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.

Trailer turn signals & brake (left) not working on factory 7 prong trailer adapter, truck indicator is ok, no signal to "left" in the wiring loom from the pdc/fmc to the factory 7 prong trailer adapter. (0 voltage), right turn, right brake, running, trailer brake & battery charge are fine. Dealer wants 1000$+ to fix/replace a defective pdc/fmc. Had not I done a walk around this could/would of caused an accident if I was making a "left" turn, merging or slowing down/stopping.. bulbs are all good and independently checked with a 12V power source.

When placing the turn signal in the lower position to make a left turn signal the right signal will come on. Some times nether will come on when lever placed in the right turn position. Some times left turn lights come on when the lever is placed in the right signal position.
