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.

2005 Nissan Armada Owner Comments

I have experienced intermittent problems with the ABS system on my 2005 Nissan Armada. Periodically while driving, the brake light will illuminate when brakes are applied and the ABS system activates. The brakes begin to groan, are spongy, have reduced braking power, and make a sound like a large spring being released. The vehicle continues these symptoms until the ignition is turned off. The speed at which the event occurs varies from 5 to 50mph. This has happened an average of once every 3 moths since May 2009. If the vehicle is turned off and then on again the system resets and performs normally. Each time I took the car to the dealership no problem codes could be found and there were no symptoms. I was finally able to take the vehicle to the dealer while the malfunction was occurring and take a test drive with a technician. His first words upon driving the vehicle were "sounds and feels like the ABS acting up." He then checked for codes and found C1179. The technician reprogrammed the ABS under ntb06-040 program. One week later the problem re-occurred and has been happening every 2 to 3 weeks since. I was able to bring the car in again while malfunctioning and the same problem code C1179 was found even after the tsb fix.
