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.

When you turn the vehicle off the radio will stay on even after you open the front driver side door. The dome light also does not work now (when I open the door). I can either have it on or off. Quite frustrating. About 10% of the time the radio will turn off when I open the door. The dome light never works. If you have any suggestions then please send them! Thanks!

I just bought this damn car just 3 days ago and it's really pissing me off! The damn radio stays on even after I remove the key from the ignition and open the driver's door, or any other door for that matter. Also, when I open the driver's door, the dome light does not come on, yet it does come on when any of the other 3 doors are opened - so I know the dome light is not the problem. I bought the car without a remote for the keyless entry system so I have to lock and unlock it with the key (only mentioning because who knows, could be useful to someone who might be able to give me some suggestions to try out). So here is what I have: Factory alarm isn't being used but does exist, dome light does not come on when driver's door opened & stereo stays on when key is removed from ignition and doors opened. Anybody want to buy a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero?? :o)
