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.

The only power I have is from the key fob to unlock/lock the door open the trunk and the head lights work. But my radio doesn't work, locks, windows, horn, or anything else. When I turn the key fob to start its just dead with no power or crank. I did notice over the past few day that when I started my car that there was a longer delay before it would start. Had the tipm replaced but it still will not start, was told that the win is bad and not part of the recall. With no win module then there is no ignition, Chrysler is aware of the issue with the win but do not want to fix it.
