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.

my 1997 ford explorer i have to take out the fuse so the battery doesn't go dead. my door ajar light is on, and my dome lights don't go right out when the car is shut off and the doors are shut. however, they will go out when its, running, and put in gear, and driven. how do you fix this ?
