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 took a short drive (five miles) to the store and back; thankfully the car was at home and not work or some place else.. About 2 hrs. later, I noticed my headlights were on dimly. I opened the drivers side door to turn off the lights and noticed the switch was already off and that there was a strong electrical burning smell. I immediately disconnected the battery. The smell was all throughout the interior of the car, but seemed strongest by the steering wheel. I haven't had it looked at yet (just happened yesterday and am brainstorming at the moment.

Note: About six months earlier when I shut the car off and removed the key, the radio would not turn off at all. I removed the stereo fuse so I wouldn't drain the battery. The fuse is still out: haven't had a chance to look at it - it may be related to current issue. Also, near the same time period, while driving, the interior instrument lights would flash on and off rapidly with a chattering noise. This occurred on two separate occasions lasting about 2 minutes - approximately 6 months ago. This car has been great up until now. I'm glad I have a back-up vehicle.
