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 blower fan on my 2008 Honda Ridgeline recently quit working. The dealership found that the wiring harness had melted causing the fan to stop working. The wiring harness was replaced. I did not receive the old harness.

2008 Honda Ridgeline fan blower motor failed causing wiring harness and resistor to fail. Wiring harness melted but fuse did not blow. This is a definite fire and smoke hazard. There are many other instances of this same exact problem in 2006 - 2008 my vehicles.

  • 4,000 miles
The air conditioner on my new 2008 Honda Ridgeline stopped working. Truck had 4,000 miles at the time. I brought it to the dealership and was told that a wire inside the dash board had melted and that a wire harness needed to be replaced. Repairs were made under warranty and problem is resolved but I was lucky not to have a fire.
