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 car would stall out in any gear at any speed when the HI beams of the headlights were flashed. At first I noticed that the car would hesitate, and the radio would turn off. Do it again, and the car would hesitate, and the radio would turn on. I put the car in neutral (it's a manual transmision), and the car stalled when I flipped the hi beams. Took the car battery into Autozone. It tested like it had a full charge, but it would also come up with a signal that showed it had an internal short. Replaced the battery and the problem went away.
