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.

Sable LS Premium 3.0L Duratec V6

When switched into "auto" mode only the parking breaks come on. And they stay on all the time. I've been told it could be a bad switch or a sun sensor. The sun sensor is about $40, the switch can be had for about the same. I just manually turn the lights on. No big deal.

Okay so at about 130k the automatic headlights refused to work. I went to a junk yard and got a unload sensor, the sensor that turn the headlights on on top of the dash. at about 160k the headlights turned off altogether, the daylight running lamp still work but the actual headlight does not!
