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.

2004 Isuzu Rodeo Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 112012

Rodeo 4WD 6-cyl

  • miles


Cup of coffee was in cup holder. Was spilled accidentally onto console. Appears all the electrical modules are under the cup holder with no protective cover. Caused transmission controller module to short circuit. Check 4 wd light. 4L kept flashing, ABS light and check engine light all stayed on. Vehicle didn't want to run at first. After he stayed running sounded as if a fire engine siren was behind me winding down. No fire truck.....appears it was the 4WD. Appears that a cup holder should not be placed where there are electrical components, especially if those components have no protection from liquid if spilled in that area.
