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.

This was a simple issue. If they would have used heaver gauge wire it would not have happened, it just broke in the plastic tube that carry's the door wires to the fender. All the lights came on and door ajar went crazy in the middle of the night going down the road, it scared me to the point I ran off the road. It took 2 weeks of tracing wire to find it broke in the hose run, I was able to pull the hose run up tight and keep it from shorting against metal. It's been OK for a year now. Read several complaints about this, it may lead to a fire if the issue is not fixed.
