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.

We have experienced problems with the ABS system on our 2004 Nissan Armada since early 2006. Periodically while driving the brake light will illuminate, when brakes are applied the ABS system activates and the brakes are very spongy. When released it sounds as though a big spring is released. Each time (approx 8 previously) we've driven very slow to a safe location, turned the vehicle off and back which resets the system. The occurrence happens at various speeds from 25-70 mph. On one occasion I was able to take the vehicle to the dealership during malfunction. Although observed, the weekend technician failed to properly relay the situation to the regular technician resulting in no action taken. Each time we were assured if normal brakes failed, would still have brakes with ABS. The system also malfunctions on initial start up, when turned off and restarted the system is reset. Most recent occurrence was 5/11/2007, I contacted my current dealership and scheduled an appointment. On 5/14/2007, they found the dtc C1179 delta sensor out of program, it was reprogrammed under ntb06-040 program. Malfunction occurred again during initial startup of vehicle on 5/19/2007, taking vehicle back for service.
