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.

Dimmer switch would fail to work properly when in use to dim from bright to low. Entire panel would go out completely. Then, a few seconds later would come back as bright as ever. Been to dealer to get a dimmer switch part and to have an independent mechanic replace it.
