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.

This is a reproducible problem!! it happens every time if the air temperature is below 55 degrees. If the vehicle has not been heated for 5 minutes before driving out to the road, the engine would be dead either at an uphill stop sign or during driving while the brake needs to be used. The battery sign lights first and followed by the oil light and then the engine would switch off.
