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.

2003 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012008

Civic LX 1.7L

  • Manual transmission
  • 46,603 miles


Below and to the left of the steering wheel, there is a "Master" button that turns Cruise Control on and off. There is a green LED light on the button itself, which is supposed to light up when the button is pressed and cruise control can be enabled via steering wheel controls. Now this light goes out intermittently and then comes back on. It has been OFF for a few months now. When I punch the panel underneath the button, where the "coin compartment" is, the light might come back on. But then after a week or so it goes out again. It does not affect the operation of the button itself- it still turns cruise control on and off. Probably, there is a loose contact on the LED itself. It is not worth wasting a full day going to a dealer to fix this light. I wonder if anyone else had this problem ?
