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 have a 1996 850 Volvo with a problem no one has an answer for. I turn the switch nothing, the engine will not turn over. With the light switch off the head lights come on. The interior lights go off sometimes if you turn the switch and hold it for 5 min. it might turn over. I need help in solving this.
