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.

The contact owns a 2001 Pontiac Bonneville. While driving approximately 40 mph on normal road conditions, proceeding to make a left turn the "battery" warning light indicator illuminated on the instrument panel, followed by an engine stall. The vehicle restarted and resumed operation; however, the failures occurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for diagnostic testing. The vehicle was repaired; however, the failure occurrences continued and there were no resolutions. The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 94,000.

Vehicle had a battery leakage problem. It was leaking for sometime. The battery is located under the back seat around the positive post. The battery acid leaked and ate through the floor pan. The exhaust is right under the battery. Noticed this on September 18, 2005. Went out to start the vehicle and that how noticed it. The consumer explained that the battery in this car sits directly on the floor pan not on a battery tray.
