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.

Frontier 6-cyl

Left work about 4 days ago at night when I was driving on the highway and the truck cut out on me(no gas pedal) so I look down at the voltage gauge and its reading about 10V..... so I thought to myself "ok well maybe the alternator finally went after all the [xxx]I put it through." Went to pull over and here is where it gets weird, I went to hit the brakes and the pedal went to the floor, I coasted to the slow lane and turned my acc. Off and got it back home safely. Long story short I tested the alternator and battery, both of which were shorted/old/dead.... replaced both at the tune of $191 for the alternator and $70 for the battery. Now, I hooked everything up today. Started the truck... volt gauge is back at 10V... then I see a small amount of smoke from under the hood, shut the truck off to find that the brake lines going from the master cylinder to the ABS module are smoking... and the lines leaving the module are as well. I cooled everything down, went inside to grab a drink (4-5 min) and came back out and the truck was completely dead... unhooked the battery and put it on a trickle charger for now.
