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 lights on my 98 sunfire won't come on. Whenever i roll the switch to turn my evening driving lights on nothing happens but when i pull it towards me for the high beams, the regular lights come on just before the high beams.. I checked the fuses what else could be wrong?
