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.

I live in northern Minnesota and when the temperatures starts to get a little warmer my truck starts to act up. Lately his problem is with the door ajar light. Whenever the passenger door is used it takes forever for the light to go off. It will go off for a few seconds then starts flashing and beeping. This of course causes the dome light to flash on and off. Sometimes after the engine is turned off the dome light will stay on for a half an hour. What can be done to fix this??
