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.

I went out to unlock my van and it wouldn't unlock. Thought the battery in key fob was dead. Found out that the delay wiper setting, rear wiper, high beam lights, turning signals. Door locks, washer fluid, outside temp display, warning lights, like the seat belt and the one that tells you that you left your keys in the ignition, are not working. Have checked all fuses. Need help please.

The contact owns a 2005 Honda Odyssey. While driving approximately 60 mph at night, the passenger side low beam headlight bulb failed without warning. The driver replaced the headlight bulb, but the failure recurred. In addition, the driver's side low beam headlight bulb was replaced twice. The vehicle was taken to an auto electric shop for diagnostic testing, but the technician was unable to determine the cause of the failure. The VIN and mileages were unavailable.
