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.

While driving with headlights on. Then, activated turn signal lights, and light on dash panel will blink fast, and let consumer know to change the light bulbs. Also, battery will die without a reason for it.

Front turn signal lights stop flashing while rear turn lights continue to work. Removed both front bulbs, filaments ok, appears failue due to arcing of contact materials different from those of bulb leads. Cleaned contacts and installed new bulbs, now work fine. Did not discuss with dealer but understand problem is common. Could lead to accidents since turn indicators are a safety item.
