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.

Fuse 8 under hood, 20A fuse. Chrysler has a couple of branch circuits downstream of this and collectively an increased load condition causes an overload on startup only. Instant burn fuse cant cope. The problem is design, there are 4 circuits fed downstream on that fuse, if the collected load builds some resistance it will exceed the capacity of the fuse. I am currently changing the fuse daily just to start my car and go. And sometimes have to change it again before leaving my destination. I did some research online by resulting to google and there are countless other people with this same problem. I was told not to put a larger fuse in there for it may catch fire because of not allowing the fuse to blow when it needs to blow. It seems to be a problem with Chrysler set up and to be not actually anything broken with my car. What do I do?

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 120,978 miles
I have a 2005 Chrysler Sebring that has "sudden acceleration" that happens without warning. On December 30th '13 shortly after I registered the car I was driving off an expressway ramp I felt the car accelerate on it's own - I couldn't stop it. I turned the wheel into a snow bank and shut the car off. The same day on the way home it happened again. I had someone drive it perhaps 50 miles and it didn't happen for him. I drove it a few more weeks, then on February 27, 2014 pulling into a parking space it happened again, I applied my brakes but it wouldn't stop and the snow bank stopped us from going over an embankment. I removed my foot from the brake pedal and the engine continued to race with the wheels still spinning up against the snow bank I then shut the car off. The brakes just won't stop it there is never enough time to put it in neutral. Finally on March 18, 2014 I pulled slowly into a parking spot and the engine revved up so loudly and crossed over a center strip and through bushes into the back of a parked car with no one in it. I have not used the car since this accident. Fortunately my husband was with me each time and we know I handled the situation properly. I am a good driver with no accidents or tickets in over 40 years. Every day I drive either a handicap van or a three quarter ton crew cab pickup, I've never had problems before this car. I also have a surcharge on my auto insurance for the next few years. I contacted Chrysler and they had someone look at it. I had the car towed to and from the Chrysler dealership. The engineer said, he drove it seven miles (big deal perhaps he should have parked it a few times). I received a letter saying (see below) that the car was okay. That was it! no satisfaction at all. In the meantime we have found on the internet other people are having the same problem.
