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.

The contact owns a 2001 Toyota Sequoia. While driving approximately 50 mph, the vehicle stalled. During the failure, the traction control and ABS indicators illuminated. The vehicle restarted, but the failure recurred several times. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, but the cause of the failure could not be determined. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 110,000.

For unknown reasons, my 2001 Toyota sequioa's vsc, brake, and ABS lights are "on" and the ABS and vsc system no longer works. A certified dealer (fiore Toyota; 1480 South main St; fall river, MA, 02724) attempted to diagnose the problem. They replaced the brakes (front/rear) and the brake fluid reservoir and a tune up for $1300, but the vsc, ABS, and brake lights are still on. Firore has no idea what to do and can no longer help me fix the problem. I now do not have ABS and stability control in the snowy northeast!

My vsc/ABS skid control light went on and my vsc/trac sensor and ABS lights were going on and off for about 5 days. The first time was on the highway and I lost all acceleration and had to pull of the road two times over a 4 mile stretch. The final time, which caused me to go for a repair was, at a stop sign where I began to accelerate when my skid light came on and the gas pedal became unresponsive for about 10 seconds. I was able to swerve to avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle but was scared as I had my one year old in the vehicle and felt helpless. I got an estimate from two dealers and one came in at $2,000 stating the whole throttle needed replacing with the sensor. The second dealership spent 8 hours examining it and decided to clean the throttle control sensor and this seemed to fix it without any added expense. This dealer only charged me $55 for a checkup!! there have been no recurrence of this issue thank god! this should be a recall!!

Brake, ABS, skid control warning lights on, dealer service checked and recommended replacing battery which was done by them. Following day warning lights still on intermittently, returned to dealer for service but the warning lights would not come on while the dealer had it. Was advised it was not a safety issue, just malfunctioning warning lights. Now( October 2007) the lights are always on and when returned to dealer for service again was told this time it was the skid control ECU, and recommend replacing skid control ECU. Was also told it that the ABS and skid control were not functioning when lights were on so handling would be affected (safety issue ). at this time I am gathering information on whether it should be replaced or not.
