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.

You have to reset the radio stations, and heater settings each time the car is started. For instance, you can assign radio stations to each of the preset buttons, turn the car off, then on again and none of the presets "stick". It's as if the battery terminals have been disconnected each time you turn off the car.

Can't find a fuse of module that controls this. I have a Hayes manual for this car and it does not mention this problem.
