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.

When starting my 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer evolution gsr, I received a warning message on the cluster display showing a yellow-orange symbol that shows 4 wheels connected by axles and the middle-shaft, where the front two wheels are facing at an angle to the side. The error code read as C161E: Dtc C161E: Electric pump relay circuit system (stuck). This has become a very common issue with the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer evolution. So common that when you search for the code C161E, you can find countless forum discussions on multiple websites commenting on the frequency of this issue. Including myself, a single discussion identifies at least 48 unique cars, 42 of which are the 2008 model year, where the acd pump failed, all of which having driven fewer than 75,000 miles and nearly 60% with less than 50,000 miles (www.evoxforums.com/forums/showthread.php?T=58221&highlight=C161E&page=1). Several of these vehicles required multiple replacements of the same part. This problem affects the safety and effectiveness of the vehicle's all-wheel-drive system, likely including the vehicle's traction control and needs to be recalled immediately.
