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 started up my car and turned on the rear defroster; I started to smell something like burning nachos and smoke started to come from underneath the driverside dashboard by my left foot where all the wire harnesses are. I did not see any burnt wiring, so I'm going to try the wiring manual and trace the short.
