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 had my ignition lock cylinder tumblers replaced by a lock smith because key kept sticking and now my car does nothing when I go to start it with key. It starts w/ remote start but odometer hand and etc go side to side really fast. My head lights, heater and dash lights don't work. Security light is not on. The key will turn the car off when I use remote starter. Car turned off while driving twice before and after tumbler replacement.

On several occasions the ignition switch failed to turn, which locked up the steering column, many times the key would not release from the ignition switch, therefore it would not turn off.

Ignition switch failed. As I was driving down the interstate, the car turned off, and I had to fight to get the car safely to the side of the road without power steering. Luckily I was able to and no one was hurt, and no damage occurred to any car. The car would not start again and it had to be towed. The ignition switch had to be replaced.
