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 contact owns a 2006 Chrysler Pacifica. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled and would not start. The failure was recurring. The battery was replaced over six times but to no avail. The dealer was not able to diagnose the failure. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer, who diagnosed and replaced the computer and the engine. Additionally, the contact stated that the air bag sensor, ABS brake sensor and the service engine sensor illuminated after the vehicle was repaired. The contact had experienced multiple electrical failures and the air bag warning light was illuminated. The dealer was not able to replicate or diagnose the failure. The dealer advised the contact to remove all keys from the key ring except for the fob and keys. The dealer also replaced the ignition switch. The air bag sensor continued to illuminate and the local authorized dealer was notified several times of the failure, who advised the contact that the air bags would not deploy in the event of a crash. The vehicle was not repaired for the air bag sensor. The manufacturer was notified of failure. The approximate failure mileage was 43,000.

I brought the car brand new in 2005 two weeks after we brought it it stalled out we took it to the dealership they were suppose to fix it. It is still occurring and it is now 2007 this is my 3rd time taking it in and also my radio does not work anymore and the battery dies after 15 minutes of leaving the key in the ignition. The dealership said it was "normal" for this to happen on Pacifica. I was irate. Now im in the process of the dealership buying it back and im also looking into the lemon law.

Pacifica 6-cyl

My wife was driving vehicle around town on a short trip (<10 mi). She had come to a complete stop to perform a "Michigan" turn (turning left using separate turn-around drives located in the median). When she began to accelerate to perform the turn, the car lunged but did not move. Her initial reaction was that the car was in neutral, but further review showed that the car had stalled (identified by the "dummy" lights lit up on the dash). She put the car in park, restarted it and proceeded. This is our first experience with the "stalling" problem with this vehicle. Gas tank was greater than full but not completely full. Vehicle mileage: 7788 miles. Vehicle had probably not reached full operating temperature.
