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 got into my car to start and it would turn over but not start. After replacing the fuel pump, checking all the fuses and relays, still the same problem. The wire harness fuse block that sits inside the drivers foot well has been corroded by water from a leak in the fire wall. This is a very common problem that even goes back to the previous generation, evo vii, and wasn't fixed for the following generation, evo ix.

The car was running fine and had no problems then when I started it up one day the dash lights and tail lights started pulsing. I thought it might be the alternator so I had it checked out. The shop said the alternator is in perfect condition and couldn't figure out the problem. The pulsating lights is still going on, and I haven't been able to find out what the problem is.
