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 am just looking for a fix. It's hot out there and after working all day in the sun I'd rather ride in a cool vehicle rather than messing with pressing buttons the entire ride home or waiting for the truck to get cool. When I start the AC, it goes to the window vents and not to the air vents. its cooling off the windows instead of me. When I press the vent it comes back down, I press the air button and it goes right back to the window vent. Where is the switch and how much does it cost to replace?
