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.

V70 XC AWD 2.4L Turbo

The position lights and turn signal on the Driver's side won't work. Mechanic says the circuit is dead. Multiple relays and mini computers involved in the circuit, according to the schematics. After weeks of attempted diagnoses and repairs, the problem can't be resolved. Seems Volvo thinks at least 2 relays and a series of computers are needed for every electrical circuit in the car. Only the Dealer seems to be equipped to repair them, and the repair for this will be $1000 to $3000 at the dealer. The car is only worth $3,000 -

Why must Volvo make their cars so intensely complex?
