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 own a 2002 Toyota 4runner with approximately 94,000 miles. The vehicle primary use is driving less than 10 miles a day off highway. The following alarm lights came on: Brake light, check engine light, vsc light, trac light, ABS light, and the speedometer quit working. The vehicle was taken to mike calvert Toyota in houston, tx to diagnose the problem. Their scanner was unable to identify a code for the problem. The conclusion was that the ads control module (skid control sensor) was at fault and thus had to be replaced. The assistant service manager, grant miles advised me not to drive the vehicle until the ads control module was replaced. The cost for the parts and labor was quoted as $2377.01. It would take 3 to 5 business days for the part to be ordered and replaced. I had to rent a car from the dealership because of the vehicle was deemed unsafe to drive and because of the lengthy repair time. The cost of the rental car is approximately $289. Because of the possible safety issues with the ads control module (skid control sensor-part # 8954035270), I am registering this notification with the NHTSA.
