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.

Intermittently, the passenger side rear door, the automatic slider, does not operate properly. While closing, the door pops open unless held and dragged into latching position. Depressing the button near the door, on the key chain, or on the dashboard makes no difference. Resetting the switch by unhooking the battery does not impact it. This has been ongoing since the vehicle was just a couple of years old and on warrantee. At that time a cable was adjusted and it was better for some time. The problem comes and goes without adjusting; currently service engineers find no easy resolution upon evaluation. Rather, they report a need to go through the entire electrical harness at great expense.

I have a 2002 Toyota Sienna mini vanand mostly during cold dry months I get a shock every time I go to close the door to get out of the van. I took the van to the local Toyota dealer and complained about the problem. The dealer said that he received other complaints from other van owners about people getting shocked as they were getting out of the van. He looked the van over and said everything was ok and that if I continued to get shocked to put a fabric softener sheet in the van to see if that helped, which it didn't. my concern is other than being shocked every time I exit the van if there is that much static that builds up in the van while commuting what happens when I carry a gasoline can in the van, should I suspect a fire would result? please help me resolve this issue.
