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.

the problem started with the radiator fan staying on with the car off. a few days later the fuel pump started staying on also with the engine off. it ran down the battery. jumped motor and going down the road it ran fine until you go to stop and it would stall but cranked right back up.i had a previous problem a week before with the heater coil and had that repaired, now all this stuff happening. any suggestions?
