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.

At 9 O'clock a.M. I was driving to the hospital to pick my girlfriend up everything was working fine but when I was leaving the hospital with her the gauges were going crazy so my girlfriend told me to go to auto advance to have my car checked out. On my way to auto advance the gage were going crazy again and the car shut thank god the car started up again. The a guy at auto advance checked the battery and the posts. He said that the battery and the posts are fine. So he ran a test on my car and said no codes are showing up. I don't know what's going on.

In April 2012 my air conditioner started turning to warm air while waiting at a traffic light and acting as if it wanted to cut off. I took it to the dealer they couldn't find anything wrong. On August 6, 2012 I returned to the dealer with same problem, I was told there was a leak in the line, and if more problems bring it back. On August 8th the air conditioner not only turned warm the car cut off. As long as I'm running steady on the highway it works fine.I actually have to turn the air off at traffic lights or not run it at all around the city, I returned again to the dealer to no avail. I went on line to just answer today, Chrysler expert informing me that possibly the electric cooling fan needs replacing which is common in PT CRUISER.I am concerned it will cause more problems to my car.
