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.

Brake light comes on when backing out of driveway, brakes squeal like the emergency brake is on, but light goes off and brakes act normal after putting into drive. Took to a tire, brake place and they could not find a cause.

so, when it is particularly humid (which it is often in Missouri) as I back out of the driveway, the emergency brake light comes on and it acts like the brake is set by slowing the van down and squeaking. as soon as I stop and put it into drive to go, the sounds stop and the light goes off. I never set my emergency brake in the garage.
