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.

Tried to crank my 1999 Ford F-150 (5.4L ) and the instrument panel gauges go blank for a moment and there's a click sound in the fuse box. Battery is brand new, all fuses are fine and it ran great 30 minutes before problem with no sign of starter or any other electical device going bad. I don't know if I somehow triggered the passive anti theft or what.

WENT OUT TO START THE TRUCK, WOULDN'T START. TRIED JUMPING IT, NOTHING WRONG WITH BATTERY. LOOKED AT ALL FUSES...ALL GOOD. DOESN'T EVEN TURN OVER. ACTS AS THOUGH A KILL SWITCH HAS BEEN TRIGGERED OR SOMETHING BECAUSE PEP BOYS ASKED...DOES IT HAVE AN AFTER MARKET ALARM THAT SHUTS DOWN THE ENGINE AND THE ANSWER IS "NO". WILL TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENS NEXT.
