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.

Traveling on interstate highway in rain storm, mid morning, windshield wipers on, instrument panel lights and headlights shut off. Pulled off highway and set headlight control to all four positions and all lights remained off regardless of control position. Shut engine off and restarted. Lights came on in all control positions. Set to auto function and returned to highway to go home. Still raining, windshield wipers on. Traveled approximately 20 miles when all lights shut off again. After reaching home, shut engine off. Restarted and lights work in all control positions. Will retest again with second driver to verify circumstances
