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.

Vsa diagnostic trouble code. Vsa light comes on and off at will. Sometimes the vsa light is preceded by a loud banging noise when braking and turning. Car jerks and screeches. Vsa light goes off when restarting car. Dealership will only diagnose and work on under warranty if vsa light is on. After persistent visits to dealership, they were able to diagnose and order a part even though vsa light was off.

On several occasions, my ABS and vsa light would come on and you would hear the brake making rattling noise. Then the light would shut off and it would be good for a couple of days or a few hours. The lights came on for the last time and stayed on. Also the brake went all though way to the floor and it felt like the steering wasn't controllable. The car went to the dealership ct and they found out that it needed a new yaw sensor. Since I have had it back fixed it has not happened since. I suggest that anyone who has these issues call your dealership and have them run the computer diag. Test on the car. The service manager at the ct dealership said that some of the earlier '05's needed new modulars, to fix this problem...
