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.

With the engine and all accessories off, the battery drain is 200ma for about a second and then it drops to 40ma where it remains until the battery is totally drained. This takes about 1-2 weeks. If the van is used every day or so the problem doesn't show up but if it won't be used for a week or more it is essential to disconnect the battery. I ruined one brand new battery while discovering this problem.
