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.

This is the 2nd time my car is running fine when I turn it off and when I go out to run an errand, there is no power at all. When I turn the key, there is nothing at all. Everything is completely dead, nothing lights up at all. It happened the 1st time earlier this winter and the garage was able to reset it and it started right up. I have tried putting the key to the on position and waiting 10 minutes and turn it to the off position and then trying to start it. There is still nothing. I assume I will have to have it towed to the garage and possibly have the ignition switch replaced. I figure that is what it must be because I have been doing research on the internet and alot of consumers have had the same problem and that is what was wrong and I also noticed that it can happen again at any time leaving people stranded. I just happened to be that both times I was in my own yard when it did it to me.
