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.

Both my low beams failed simultaneously while driving, but high beams still work. I confirmed that there is no power being sent to the low beams. This vehicle had a recall for 2000-2002 model years for exact issue. American Honda, and the local Honda dealer tell me my VIN# is off by 1 month (within same model year associated with recall), so it's not under "recall." They told me further diagnosis and repair would be at my expense. Report receipt date: Feb 24, 2004 NHTSA campaign number: 04V086000 component(s): Exterior lighting summary: On certain passenger vehicles, the low-beam terminal on the head light wire harness can overheat and could cause the low beams to fail without warning. Consequence: An unexpected loss of low beams could result in a crash. www-ODI.NHTSA.dot.gov/acms/cs/jaxrs/download/doc/acm2982889/rcdnn-04V086-3477.pdf.
