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.

Driver side headlight stopped working on dim only. Changed bulb, but this bulb also did not work on dim. Verified the bulb was good by trying it on the passenger side. The next day, the driver side headlight just started working again. 3 weeks later it went out again. This time I traced the wiring back inside the car to the "inside" fuse box. The wiring that goes out to that headlight comes from a plug that plugs into this fuse box. After "wiggling" this plug, the headlight came back on. However I can "wiggle" it and make it go off also. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem.
