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.

Over night, my battery died. When I tried to turn the car on, the windshield whispers would go crazy, radio would turn on, but not the car. Purchased a new battery, car is only 3 yrs old. The new battery is being drained now. When the car is off, the radio turns on and off by itself, the fog lights strobe, and there is a beeping noise. The dealership teased everything and found that it is the ECU (electrical control unit) which is on recall for my make, year, and model, but not for my car based off the VIN. It is exactly what was going wrong in other vehicles exactly my year, make, and model, but not according to my VIN #.
