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.

When the consumer rolled down the windows, they failed to come back up, the consumer was informed the wiring harness from the window regulator was bad, and there was extensive electrical wiring damage which had corroded over time. Also the rear defroster was inoperative.. the consumer also noticed the dash lights no longer worked and the headlights did not flash when the door was locked with the key pad.
