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.

I can't believe my problem is exactly the same as the one above. I was going to just observe. Then this. The warning lights go on and the tachometer goes to zero, intermittently. Cluster of three beeps, repeated twice. Mechanic checked it out after fixing another problem, and little time to chase it down. Nothing wrong with the problems that the lights would represent, no explanation. Doesn't relate to humidity, or whether the engine's warmed up or not -- that I can tell.
