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 Montana. The contact stated that the vehicle was experiencing failures within the elextrical system, which was causing the cruise control, anti lock braking system, and speed sensor to fail. As a result, the transaction and air bag lights would illuminate on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer and the contact was informed that the failure was related to the failure addressed in the recall associated with NHTSA campaign id number 02V329000 (air bags frontal). The contact was also informed that the check valve pin for the air bags was in the wiring harness and causing all of the failures. The vehicle was not included in the recall.
