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.

One day when at work, parked car and noticed reverse lights didn't work. Checked fuses, bulbs and switch at transmission. Found no voltage at socket connector in trunk lid. Brought to mechanic and found to be stretched wire where trunk lid wiring comes from body in trunk. Mechanic spliced in longer wire and advised how to repair if problem came back. Also said common problems with Acura and Toyota.

Don't rip up carpet or replacing switch at transmission until you check this first. Simpler and less expensive fix if it is the case.
