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.

After driving 30 miles without problems engine stalls. Attempts to start it failed but when key is in on position not start position starter engages. Attempted several times and each time key turned on starter engaged even without clutch depressed which is normally required, even in gear with clutch released starter engaged. Have yet to get engine started tho condition continues. Towed car home to my shop where im investigating this issue.

While driving car at 30 mph just died steering locked up and no response. After sitting for about an hour and restarted. Happened again about 2 days later. Hooked up to diagnosis machine and it said it was the cam shaft possession sensor that was replaced. Car ran fine for about a week and the issue began again. Hooked it up and it said it was same part. Took part back got new one no response. Took car to dealer but machine read no problem. Changed crank shaft sensor after googling similar issues but issue still exists. We have spent several dollars on parts that do not resolve the issue. I am just thankful for the first time it happened to have not been on the highway and just on a side street close to home. We have not been able to drive the car because U never know when it may stall out and if or when it will restart. After goggling many others are having same issue and I don't know how this could possibly be safe more how no one can resolve or fix the issue. So basically paid $10,000 for a nice yard ornamnet at this time. Very frustrated and wishing Chrysler would step up. Owning 3 Dodge/Chrysler vehicles at this time is to the point where I would never own another if this issue is not resolved soon!

Steering wheel it lock and when I want to start the car, the key in the ignition will not move. Is the second time it happened. The first time was two years a go ( year 2010 ) when I had 30000 miles on the car, and I had to buy a new assembly ( the lock-cylinder housing, ignition lock cylinder, switch and the key. ) now the dealer told me I need a new ignition lock cylinder and maybe a new key again ).

When putting key into ignition, you can not disengage steering column to start car, steering wheel stays locked and you can not turn key. This just started this year on 2004 Crossfire.
