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.

problem #2

Dec 302008

Neon LX 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 105,633 miles


Door lock makes an awful scream and it does not open sometimes. When I use my car remote to open or lock the doors or when the automatic door lock, the driver side door makes a scream. This problem is causing a short circuit that killed my battery. Not sure how to fix this problem, anybody has an idea?

Neon LE 2.0L

  • 105,000 miles

This is a known problem to Chrysler/dodge cars.

The power door lock mech will strip gears eventually and make a loud grinding noise when trying to lock. Imagine revving an impact drill inside a car, THAT's what it sounds and feels like.

My right-rear door developed this problem earlier this year and now it had totally died. Door cannot be open.

Actually, this is a good thing, my car doesn't make as much murderous noises now. (see my other post about the break screams)
