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.

My keys would fall out of my ignition while the car was still running. Also, several times before the vehicle would allow the keys to release while the car was in accessory mode causing the battery to drain. After 3 weeks, a new battery, and loads of frustration a replacement of this part was installed and no issues have occurred since. The repair cost me $197....updated 12/09/15
