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.

Dt the contact stated there was a loud ticking sound. First noticed this problem on November 24, 2002. Contact stated they received a recall for the hazard button. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer, and they did recall repairs, but dealer stated the loud ticking sound was from the turn signal area. As soon as starting the vehicle one could hear the ticking sound just as if had put turn signal on, but it was an even faster ticking sound. Contact contacted the manufacturer, they were of no assistance.
