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.

problem #2

Ridgeline 6-cyl

Fan blower motor stopped working. A/C compressor will turn on (heat, as well), however no air will blow. This is intermittent and does not always occur. The fan will eventually turn on and start blowing air.

problem #1

Over the course of 2 weeks we would turn the dial for the heat and it would kick in and blow warm air and then it would stop. We took it to inver grove Honda to get it fixed and they replaced the blower. It actually worked for about a week, then stopped again...completely... on a day that it was -20 degrees with wind chill. They now have told us that the wiring for that unit is melted and the entire wire harness needs to be replaced. This is running us around $1800. The mechanic told my husband this isn't the first time he's seen this. We then researched further to find the problem all over the internet. See here:"P=418168 I called Honda for an explanation, guarantee that this won't happen again or further start my vehicle on fire. After all, how does a wire melt" it must get hot... therefore this is a concern to me with children in my vehicle a large percentage of the time. They said they can not guarantee this won't happen again and due to the mileage they can't financially help fund the repair. They have no explanation as to how this happened. The claim number submitted was: [xxx]. information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
