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.

ABS light comes on when car idles and then car will get hot and when you kill will not start without being jumped. checked engine light stays on and wonder if a connection of the two. Ford dealership had car and installed a new alternator, saying that was the overall problem. worked for 11 months and started back. any help?
