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 contact owns a 2008 Honda Ridgeline. The contact stated that the heating and air conditioning blower failed. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the wiring harness needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure and current mileage was 72,000.

Honda Ridgeline was parked. Started truck, ac was on, set at 66 but no cold air was blowing. Moved the manual blower button to high, still no cold air blowing. Shut ac off and switched to heater no air was blowing. Took truck to Honda dealer in New Hampshire for oil change/tire rotation and had them look at ac/heater problem. They said that blower motor may have a bad resistor, if they replace resistor and blower still not working they would have to replace blower motor. Dealer looked at recall history for this problem for Honda ridgline, said there was recall for ac/heater issues but not for my year (2008). I googled Honda Ridgeline 2008 ac problems and found other truck owners reporting the same problem.

The heater / ac stopped working on my 08 rts Honda Ridgeline. There were no events that lead up to the failure. The dealers service department stated that heater wire harness overheated and burned up for an unknown reason. They are having to order the replacement parts, but I am concerned whether this is a fire hazard.
