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.

Engine management light stays on. It has had 5 diagnostic tests and various parts replaced, however it still cuts out. When you initially start car a fan comes on for about 3 mins, when this goes off the car either cuts out or kicks back and the engine management light sometimes goes out. The car always starts after about 2 minutes. Strangely when the interior immoboliser light flashes.. There is no solution and we have spent over 750.00 ($1,060 USD) on it.
