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.

2008 Suzuki SX4. Consumer writes in regards to an electrical problem. The consumer stated he was pulled over by a police office, for inoperative taillights. After an inspection, the police officer discovered the brake lights were not working as well, the only light working was the turn signal lights and the reverse lights. Some fuses were blown and replaced. The next day, a motorist informed the consumer, the taillights were not working. Again, the fuse had blown. While leaving work the next day, the consumer smelled smoke. He looked at the hood, then looked inside the car and he finally looked in the rear view mirror where smoke was coming from the trunk of the vehicle. He was able to pull over and shut the vehicle off. The consumer inspected the trunk, and there was a smell of electrical wiring coming from the drivers side taillight, which had caught on fire and welded themselves together. The consumer replaced the wiring. However, the vehicle was taken to the dealer, because the burned wires were traced back to the drivers seat. The dealer stated the harness in the trunk had caught fire and damaged two other harnesses.

The contact owns a 2008 Suzuki SX4. The contact stated after making 5 to 15 degree turns with either turn signal activated, the signal would not cancel soon enough or after completing a shallow turn. This is not a developed malfunction, but, one inherent on the vehicle from the manufacture automatically which required the turn signal switch to manually be engaged to deactivate the operation. The vehicle had not been diagnosed or repaired. The contact planned to notify the manufacturer. The approximate failure mileage was unknown. Updated 10/13/2011
