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.

About Oct 15, 2010 I noticed when I put on my right hand turn signal the high beam would turn on. It did it consistently for a couple of months then stopped. Then stopped. Then started again. Seems like the trigger is when I do use the high beam is the trigger that starts the process of starting the cycle for a couple of months. It is a danger to oncoming cars as well as to cars that are in front of you blinding both.

The headlamp switch (stalk) on the steering wheel may be faulty. I have on numerous occasions activated the high beams without selecting that position (at least 1-2 times per day). This seems to happen more when I use the turn signal. I have accidentally blinded many people with my high beams and I'm certain it's a safety issue.
