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.

Intermittent problem of dash cluster lights, steering wheel control lights, gear selector lights, climate control lights going completely out or in operative. Turning headlamp switch to on position vs. Automatic setting makes no change in problem. Intermittent nature is also tied to display in radio flashing bright a few times and then all affected lights going out.
