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.

Two different; dealers could not fix the problem. They simply swapped out the fuel pump and off I went. On the third time (going on fuel pump #4) I located the fuel pump under the rear seat and found that the wires leading to the connector had been pinched by the back seat frame. I took a hammer to the seat frame bottom and taped up the wire lead going to the fuel pump so that it would not short out.
