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.

After short drive, and shutdown engine would crank but not start. Towed to dealership. Next day truck started right up. Dealer could find no issues. Several weeks and 2000 miles later, problem occurred again. Found fuel inertia switch electrical connector melted. Fell apart when removing. Purchased new switch and electrical harness connector pigtail. Fortunately failure occurred after stopping and shutting down. Could cause a terrible accident if failure occurred at highway speeds. Something is causing an overheat condition in this switch/connector.
