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.

Well if you turn the key and nothing happens (And I mean nothing, not even a click) pull up on the Gear Selector Lever and while pulling it should start.

I have a loose gear selector and when I try to put it in park I don't think it catches. This makes it so that many times when I try to start my car nothing happens. I'm not sure how to fix the problem or if I have to take it in.
