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.

This is the 4th altenater I have installed the first one was still under warranty. This time the fuses did not blow but it burnt out the wiring harness from the altenater to the relays and burnt the Relay Board located in the engine compartment. I am seriously wondering why the small fuses didn't blow before everything burnt up. The altenator, the relay board and wiring harness all was fried.
