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.

Blinker on the right side became inoperative and inside indicator blinked quickly. Upon investigation discovered the blinker bulb was good but the headlight was very dim and almost out. High beam would only come on slightly. The other side of the car was fine. Checked online and, as suspected, there was some repair notices about the corrosion on the ground connector due to poor plating which caused the problem. It appears that Honda may have bad ground terminals or other connection problem on their safety lighting system. Called Honda dealer and then Honda american. They indicated this was not a warranty problem so would not cover it. I believe this kind of problem will result in many cars having partial headlights and is a safety related failure in a critical system and should be covered under a recall. The headlights and turn signal could be on and off without notice. This is a low mileage car and not even in a rust belt part of the country.

The contact owns a 2009 Honda Fit. The contact stated that the vehicle was parked and when the contact engaged the low beam headlight, they would not illuminate. The contact played around wit the headlight switch for several moments before they finally illuminated. In addition, when the left turn signal or the high beams were utilized, the low beam headlights would fail. The failure would occur intermittently. The vehicle was neither repaired nor diagnosed for the failure. The failure mileage was 38,000 and the current mileage was 38,500.
