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.

First of all my lights turn on and off by themselves, not a big deal, sort of inconvenient. I went to start my car and noticed that my hazard lights were on, strange. When I opened the door, instead of beeping at me, there was just one, long tone, even stranger. Then I noticed that it said my high-beams were on. Huh. So I start my car with no problem and drive to my destination. I even make it home with no problem. I get out and see that my hazard lights are now off. Okay, so the car was just being wonky, whatever. I go to start it the next day and again notice that my hazard lights are back on, constant tone, and high-beam indicator is back on. Turn the key and nothing. Not even a click. My battery is completely dead. I try to jump it to no avail. Maybe I need a whole new electrical system? No idea because it's going to cost a few hundred dollars just to tow it to the shop so they can tell me it's going to cost a few more hundred dollars. Thanks, Toyota.
