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.

My 2006 Honda CRV SUV continually has starter switch problems. It buzzes loudly upon starting the engine. It sounds like the contacts are shorting out. My friends who have Honda of the same year, but have a different models do not have this problem.

I have a 2005 Honda CRV purchased new from jeff wyler Honda in florence, ky. Twice now, my ignition has simply shut itself off while I was driving. Once this occurred on the highway (in 2006) and again this week (2007) on a busy road. When the car shuts off, the green key icon in the dash flashes. Luckily both times I was able to coast out of traffic, shift into park and restart. I have been able to restart immediately, but it's a really dangerous problem when you are driving 65 mph and your car shuts itself off. The first time this happened I had about 40,000 miles on the car. Now I have nearly 60,000. Otherwise, the CRV is in perfect condition. I noticed that there was a recall on Honda CRV ignition switches in 2002, and the description sounded identical to the problem I'm having. I think that they have not fixed the problem yet. I took it to the dealer for service a year ago, but they could not replicate the problem. They told me that they suspected it was cell phone interference with the ignition switch. If so, that's a big flaw because...who doesn't have a cell phone in their purse in the car?
