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.

When I turn on my headlights, my interior lights stay on and will not turn off. I have had to take out the fuse to fix this problem with my interior lights staying on. It happened suddenly and I cannot seem to get it resolved.

Sorento 6-cyl

I have a 2006 Kia Sorento. I have had to replace the battery twice (so including the original it has gone through 3 batteries since 06), I have had (and continue) to replace the bulbs in the headlights and brake lights. The dome light has ceased to work as well. I have been made aware that I am not alone in this problem but Kia is not interested in doing anything about it. This is a safety issue. This last time, I drove to my destination and all was well, then when I came out to drive home..poof, the driver low beam was out. Any help will be appreciated.
