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 signal light on the right hand side will not work on the back only. the signal clicks fast as if a bulb is blown. I changed it and still no good. It works for a few times then wont work for a lot of the time. I'm hauling a trailer and its crappy having to speed up or slow down so people behind me are not running into me.

I have been trying to get my truck inspected for the last 4 months but I cannot pass inspection because I cannot get the left break light or blinker to stay working. I have brought it to a garage 3 times and they say they fixed the problem but the next day it's back to not working. I believe there is a bad ground wire somewhere but I do not even know where to begin searching. Also, when going down the road my fog lights blink on and off. I have never owed a vehicle with so many electrical problems in my life. I cannot afford to have someone fix it, I am at a loss because I still owe over $5,000 on this truck!!! I hope someone can give me some advice on what to do and where to start.
