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.

: the contact stated the electrical system was continually blowing fuses that operate the headlights. While driving at night it was dangerous because there were no indications that the fuse would blow. The bulbs in the headlight were replaced numerous times to see if the bulbs were the problem. The bulbs would pass inspection when taking out of the contact's vehicle. The dealer can not duplicate the problem and no repairs were made.

Blown main engine fuse due to this failure it shuts off all engine and it does not operate at all. While driving, engine shuts off and won't start. After it went to the dealer for so many days without calling us to inform of what's going on, they have figured that it has a blown fuse and they ( dealer mechanics ) blame me to the fact that I might be using a lot of electical activities in the van such as playing video game while driving and might have caused the electrical blow out. Then 2 months later... same thing happened I was on my way to work and it did the same thing. Now that the car is at the dealer, god knows what they will come up with, to have such an excuse.
