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.

CR-V 4-cyl

The contact owns a 2002 Honda CR-V. while driving approximately 60 mph with the low beam headlights activated, the low beam headlights suddenly failed. The dealer was made aware of the failure and advised the contact that the failure could have been caused by the headlight switch. There was an investigation under NHTSA action number: EA11012 (exterior lighting:headlights:high/low beam dimmer switch electrical system:wiring:interior/under dash exterior lighting:headlights:switch) that could possibly have been related to the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 221,000. Updated 01/04/12

1) after a cold start, the dash gauges swing up and down very rapidly and the dash lights blink on and off very rapidly also. After 5-10 minutes it stops. 2) took the vehicle to a independent Honda repair shop and they diagnosed the problem as a bad muitplex control unit. The repair shop called Honda tech line, they asked if there was a fire? I guess there have been fires related to this problem. 3) parts have been ordered and the repair cost was $644.
