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.

Blower motor relay shorting out. I cannot turn my fan on any higher than low. If I do, the relay burns out. One of the prongs on the relay burns out. I have replaced the relay at least 5 times. Makes it dam hard to defrost the windshield . Then after awhile it will burn out even on low. Can't get a straight answer from anyone... Is it a short in the wiring? Do I need a new blower motor. Is this going to be a costly repair? Would like some idea before I take it to a garage
