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 blower motor would work and then not work and when it worked for a long period of time, smoke would come out from under the passenger dashboard. I removed the cardboard cover and saw smoke from the connection to the blower loter and the connection was hot to the touch so I pulled it off from the blower.
