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.

Blower motor only works on setting #5. The highest setting works on its own HVAC fuse, the rest work on a series of resistors. The resistor pack runs between $20-$50 and its a 45 minute fix, the resistor pack is in the dash. The dash just snaps off and its easy to put back on
