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.

2004 Toyota Avalon. Consumer writes in regards to replacement parts not available to complete electronic control unit/ supplemental restraint system recall notice.

The odometer light appears to be a part of the same clusters of indicators and buzzers. The light has not worked for two years. The problem with the air bag has been identified as the electronic control unit for the supplemental restraint system.
