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 a cheap and easy problem to fix, but a safety issue if you're driving around with no brake lights. The electrical switch located at the brake pedal breaks (it's plastic), then your brake lights will not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed. Replace this switch and your brake lights will work again. Make sure to check for burned out brake light bulbs before replacing this switch.
