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 2005 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the brake lights remained illuminated even when the vehicle was shut off. The failure recurred and drained the battery. In order to prevent the battery from draining, the fuse that connects to the brake light had to be removed. When the fuse for the brake light was removed, the vehicle was unable to reverse. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The contact was aware of NHTSA campaign number: 09V280000 (exterior lighting); however, the VIN was not included. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 157,500.
