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.

The second problem just occurred. We left the vehicle at a airport parking garage while we were going on vacation. My son in law was going to pick up the vehicle when he got off of work at the airport in about 6 hours. However when he went to start the Ridgeline nothing happened. No matter what he tried nothing happened. He even tried to jump start the truck but nothing would happen so he left us a phone message and found a ride to his home. When we returned a week later we also tried to start and jump start it with out the truck responding in anyway what so ever so we had the truck towed on a flat bed to the dealership in ct. After some time checking out the truck the dealership found that for some reason, still unknown what that reason is, the truck's main fuse and all other fuses were blown and the battery was completely dead. The dealership replaced the battery and the fuses and it works fine once again, at least until the next time. The dealership could not explain why or what caused this problem and stated that my truck was the first one to have this happen to it, great now we hold a unwanted record!! does anyone have any idea what or why this happened?

I have had two problems with my 2006 Honda Ridgeline. The first was with the original battery. From the first week until I replaced the battery myself the factory installed battery would go dead. I would contact the dealer and was told to bring the vehicle in. In order to do this I needed to jump the battery which in turn allowed the battery to becomecharged while driving it to the dealers 20 miles away. This type of incident happened over 15 times, each time I was told to drive the vehicle to the dealer, each time when I got to the dealers they found nothing wrong with the battery, it was charged. Mean time I told the dealer that in order to get the vehicle to them I needed to either jump start or charge the battery which in turn would make it appear ok once I arrived at the dealership. Every time the dealer ship refused to replace the battery because it appeared ok. I had to go to sears and put a new die hard into the truck myself since the dealership refused to do anything.
