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.

2001 Toyota Corolla Owner Comments

Corolla LE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles


I have a 2001 Toyota Corolla with 103,000 miles on it. During the last week, the door locks have been intermittent. Once it helped to press the child safety button, even though that shouldn't have affected the driver's side lock. Today that didn't work, so I unlocked it manually so I could get out, and then used the passenger side lock button to lock the car. Go figure.

My car doesn't have a security system. I haven't taken it in yet. I am wondering where the wires are, if other nearby wires or connections will fail.

Corolla CE

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


I own a 2001 Toyota Corolla CE & one day months ago the ALL the windows switches & the the driver's side door switches ( window switches, unlock/ lock switches) stopped working??

I have tried replacing the fuses but, that doesn't fix the problem. The Toyota dealer ship thinks it is the non working alarm that is interfering with the switches.

Frankly, its a real pain in the ass & I sick of dealing with it....If you have any resolutions or advice please let know.

Thanks for your help!! ;)
