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.

In 12/2001 I purchased a 2002 Chrysler Sebring lxi and discovered the interior lights blinked. I reported to the dealer, who neglected to repair the problem. On April 26, 2007 the radio intermittently stopped operating and began to blink even while turning off and/or not operating the vehicle. I took it to the dealer on 05/18/07 for diagnosis and repair, and as it turned out the radio was causing the interior light to blink. Once the radio was replaced the interior lights no longer blinked. The problem with the radio was electronically back feeding into the electrical systems, causing the radio and everything it back feed into to become charged by the battery and on constantly. This was a serious fire hazard while the car was parked in my garage. This was a problem Chrysler was aware of by issuance of their technical service bulletin #08-026-01 dated 12/14/01 for 2001-2002 Sebring/Sebring convertible/stratus and 2002 Liberty. Chrysler refused to take responsibility for the problem even though they knew the problem existed. Other than the interior lights blinking, the electrical problem did not become evident until April 26, 2007. I was left to pay for factory defective equipment. It took this problem 5 years to surface, but it has the potential to cause a great deal of damages to the vehicles and personal property as well as cause serious injuries or death by fire. Please help me and anyone else who own these vehicles.

: the contact stated the air bag lamp intermittently illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection. The dealer determined the problem was in the wiring of the seat belt. The vehicle is currently having the wiring harness to the seat belt connections replaced.

Approximately a month after I purchased the car new, I was driving home from work very late at night, my lights went out about 4 or 5 times. They would come right back on when I hit the dimmer switch, but it was really frightening. I took the car back to the dealer and they found a loose wire in the steering column. Now, 2 years later, May 2005, on the way home from work at 2A.M. my lights went out two times and came back on when I hit the dimmer switch.
