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.

Ever since the purchase of my 2008 Hyundai Sonata I have had problems with the TPMS and ESC lights/system. Over the years if I would turn the car off then back on it seemed to reset the system and the lights would go out. I did have the TPMS system repaired under warranty years back and it seemed to lessen the problem however now 8/29/2014, the lights will not go off even after stopping and starting the car. I had the wheel sensors tested and they are all working. The repairs done when I first had the car took days and I remember they had to replace something behind my glove box which they said was a radio that read the signal from the wheel sensors. Seems like the same problem and I see others have the same issue with these lights. I have called the dealership (preston Hyundai in boardman, oh) and am waiting for a return call.
