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.

The dealership I purchased the car from replaced a battery on 05/20/00. After replacement of the battery, the airbag light came on. The service department said it needed a new airbag module. Since this light had never come on before, I believed it had to do with the new battery replacement. I refused the installation of the new airbag module to see if the light would go off on its own. After three weeks it has not. I have an extended warranty which will not cover the replacement of the airbag module. My second concern is with the daytime running lights (drl). They have occasionally gone on and off while driving and have stayed on after the car has been turned off as well. I can make them go off by turning the headlamps on and off. The dealership can find no cause for this.
