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.

I checked all fuses and battery. The dealer tells me it could take as much as 6 hours to diagnose and repair @ $ 72.00 per hour. The backlight for the speedometer, clock, tach, gas, etc. went very dim and flashes bright to dim when I use the power windows. Completely black in daylight and slightly illuminated in the dark. Fuses and battery were OK.
