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 2001 Chrysler Town and country. When the radio was activated, the contact noticed an electric light flashing. In addition, the battery would frequently fail. He took the vehicle to a repair shop and they stated that the radio caused the battery to drain. The dealer stated that the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign id number 04V531000 (equipment:electrical:radio/tape deck/cd etc.); therefore, they would not assume financial responsibility for the repairs. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure mileage was 109,759 and current mileage was 112,759.

Do to clockspring failure, many people could be hurt or killed because horn, & airbags no working. This is due to bad parts car buyer's shouldn't have to pay for replacement.
