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.

Both mounting tabs on the driver's side tail light fixture broke allowing the entire housing to fall off on the interstate. It was dangling by the electrical pigtail.

I signal left with the turn signal but the right turn signal activates. It happens about 30% of the time. Gathering information to correct it now. From the boards it appears it is the multi-function switch.

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram. The turn signal started to signal opposite of the direction selected. Even though this is a common problem in this truck there is no safety recall and I had to pay $188 to fix it at the dealer.

When left turn signal is selected right one will flash on occasion. This has happened several times since I have owned the truck. I have owned the truck since new and all repairs have been done by one dealership.
