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.

Cell phone car charger would not charge when plugged into the front power source adapter. Got vehicle manual, located fuse, removed blown fuse, replaced with exact same size fuse that was removed-per vehicle manual. Once fuse was replaced, plugged in cell phone charger, vehicle filled with smoke, yanked cell phone charger out, opened hood and pulled out fuse. Fuse was melted in two. Took vehicle to dealer the next day, advised them what happened. Called me later in the am and advised me extended warranty would not cover cost of repairs, had to have wire harness replaced as several wires had been melted all the way back to fuse box. Dealership blamed damage on cell phone charger. Ironically they was no damage to cell phone charger or visible damage to power source.
