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.

Headlights flicker while driving. They are getting worse as they are cutting completely off driving down the road. Some times it will even dim or completely shut off the interior lights.the lights cut off in the middle of a turn. I've had it in service 3 or 4 times and they can not seem to find the problem. The day I bought the car on the way home is the first time I noticed and called it in for repair. They have since then replaced the battery and the alternator in attempt to fix the problem which none of this has successfully helped. The car does this mainly while driving, but sometimes while in a stationary position. My job requires me to work nights which I can not even drive my car for this safety issue in the fear of causing a wreck and possibly injuring someone or myself. I had a video to share, but its not in the right format so it will not let me post. Please help me find the solution to this.
