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.

I used to have the same problem with my car, I would go to start it and it would sound like it was going to start and than shut off and the security light would blink, and than after about ten minutes the car would suddenly start up just fine? there is a defect in the security system, when the passlock system thinks someone is stealing the car, it shuts down the fuel filter, so the car is unable to run. It is a security feature on this car, that for some reason they did not recall. All I did was pull out the stereo/cd player, there is a wire running from the passlock system to the ignition, I cut it. This actually disables the security system all together, which I live in a place where I don't really have to worry about theft so this works for me, but actually fixing the problem is pretty simple but a little time consuming. Remove the dash to get to that same wire I was talking about earlier and change the fuse. The wire runs from the ignition back over to the firewall on the passenger side of the car. It's the only fuse on the wire, all you have to do is change that one $5 fuse and the problem will go away! Again it's a very simple fix, it's just a pain in the butt to get to it! My car has not done it for almost 2 years now. hope this saves some time for others, I know it drove me nuts for months!
