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.

bought the car three days ago and it ran and drove like brand new, went to start it last night and the power went on but when i went to start it everything in the car died. and when i went to retry it had no sighn of even haveing any battery. i got my volt meter out and the battery was fine, but everytime i went to start one of the relays under the dash was clicking(battery saver relay). i replaced the relay this morning and the car runs and drives like new once again

Just bought new battery b/c Garage had told me that was the problem. Very next day- radio didn't work, speedometer didn't work, windshield wipers slow, power windows slow, dim lights. On my way home from work- entire car died and battery light on. Could it be alternator??
