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.

Consumer stated the driver side door ajar light comes on intermittently. The vehicle has been taken to the dealership, and they stated it was a bad switch in the door. They want to charge consumer $127 to fix it.. this started approximately one to two weeks ago. This could cause dome lights to stay on and drain the battery.
