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.

Update to July/2013 complaint regarding SRS light coming on permanently. 9/11/13 SRS light came on permanently again. Dtc 15-2 code. The Honda dealer replaced the SRS control unit on 10/1/13. Mileage 114,126. I have the old SRS control unit in my possession. 10/21/13 SRS light come on permanently again. 11/4/13 Honda dealer reset the SRS light. Dtc codes were different than the dtc 15-2. mileage 114,925. No charge by dealer. 11/24/13 SRS light came on permanently again. Honda dealer diagnosed problem as a short in one of the wiring harnesses triggering the dtc 15-2 code. Dealer reset the SRS light. No charge for 4 hours of work. Dealer would not give me any paperwork on service visit. Mileage approximately 115,437 at time of visit. The dealer tech suggested I clear the code with a code reader until it would no longer clear rather than blindly replacing at this time the 4 wiring harnesses to locate the short. The consumer also stated the head lights burned out prematurely, and he had to replace them several times. Updated 01/29/14

While driving both dim headlights went out. I pulled over and realized the bright head lights did work while the dims no longer worked. After replacing both bulbs and realizing they still did not work. I investigated the issue and after visually inspecting the wiring harness that plugs into the combination switch (blinker/headlight control) there is obvious signs of heat damage and electrical corrosion. The low beam headlights did not work, due to an electrical short in the wiring harness. Updated IVOQ 03/05/12
