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.

2001 Nissan Sentra Owner Comments

The vehicle was purchased used in Oklahoma in April 2013, and all the dash gauges quit on the way home, along with the odometer going out. After the car cooled down, the gauges/odometer started working again. The car was then driven cross country to Washington state, and when the heater was turned on, and after a few minutes, the gauges/odometer stopped working again. Once cooled off, the gauges/odometer would start working again. The car was then driven to Texas, and the same issues came up, all centered around temperature. It seems when the heater is turned on (while the vehicle was in wa), or if it is hot outside (the drive to Texas, and while the car has been in Texas), the gauges will stop working after a period of time, and will start working again once the temperature inside the car has cooled down. Currently we are having 100 degree weather days in Texas, so if the car is hot when leaving the house, the gauges won't work, until the ac has been on enough to cool the inside of the car (and I assume gauges) down. Using the car after the ac has been on and the inside of the car is cool, there is no problem with the gauges. If you turn the ac off and roll the windows down, once the heat builds up in the car (about 85 degrees or so), the gauges will go off again.
