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.

Headlights flickered off and on, would not stay on at night. Had at least one flash (off then on within one second period) every time I drove in the dark. One time it flashed continuously. Affected all electrical components. I notified dealer and also called Oldsmobile. Dealer replaced the alternator, said the problem was due to low voltage when an air pump near the alternator turned on.
