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.

my car radio cuts out and after leaving the car sitting for a few hours, I try to start it but it won't and nothing works. All of the indicators, radio, lights. No power what so ever. I brought it in and I was told it was the battery, a few weeks later it happened again. Brought it in again, they have no idea what it is. To me it seems like the alternator is draining the battery but they said it isn't the alternator. What else could be the problem and how can I check for myself?
