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.

Ignition switch started acting up first. Had to replace key and tumbler part. Car wouldn't start anymore. I took door lock cylinder to locksmith to have key made, replaced locked and unlocked door, but still wouldn't turn over. Then I replaced electrical part of ignition--still will not turn over. Replaced battery and starter, still will not turn over. Ran a wire from ignition switch to starter it now turns over but won't start, disconnect the wire won't turn over anymore. Even replaced fuel pump and filter, you can hear the pump come on when switch is turned on but start position no turn over. Tie in the wire it turns over but won't fire up. Put gas in throttle body with wire attached it starts and run until that gas burn out. Something keeping starter circuit and injection circuits from working. WHAT!!!!
