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.

Driving in rain, windshield wipers on intermittent, and they started running full - not intermittant. Moved wiper switch to full, and back to intermittent, without any change. Moved wiper switch to fast, and back to full and intermittent, and still no change. Turned wipers off, but they kept running while switch was in the off position. Pulled off highway. Moved switch postion back and forth and then back to off. Wipers still kept running. Turned off car, wipers stopped. Waited a few minutes, started car, wipers started up even though switch still in off position. Wipers swept twice, and then froze in the full up position. Turned off car again. Restarted car, was able to get wipers to run intermittent again, but kept them that way for remainder of ride home. Was afraid to change switch position again for fear of complete failure and being stranded far from home in the rain with no wipers. After research, I now see that there is a Honda tsb 07-071 dated Nov 22, 2007 for this issue that supersedes another from Oct 19, 2007.
