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.

2005 Volkswagen Touareg. Consumer states when he inserts the key into the ignition to start the vehicle, it does not start. The consumer stated if he removed the key, pressed the lock button and then the unlock the button on the key fob, then try again, the vehicle generally started up. When the vehicle did not start, the vehicle would have to be towed, as the transmission would not shift out of park.

To date, the access/start module was replaced four times, the steering column was replaced three times, the ignition switch was replaced twice, the J519 vehicle electrical control unit and battery were also replaced.
