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.

Contact stated the headlights were not working properly. They intermittently shut off while driving. After a short period of time the headlights came back on. The dealer replaced the multi-function switch, but this repair did not fix the problem. The manufacturer has been contacted. There is currently an open investigation for the headlights on this model vehicle. Updated 11/29/05.

Headlamps fail while driving at night. Sometimes flicker and come back on. We don't drive much at night, we have owned this van for about 3 months. We have driven it 5 or 6 times at night, and we have had headlight failure 3 times. After the 2nd incident, we took it back to the dealer. They said they couldn't find the problem, but they flashed the vehicle computer memory. The first two times we had the problem, the lights flickered and came back on. The last time we had the problem, the lights went on/off several times (3 or 4) in a span of about 5 minutes. I also noticed that the switch inside the vehicle is getting hot during headlight operation.

The consumer stated while driving at night the headlights failed intermittently. The part(s) were on back order according to Chrysler. The consumer later learned that Chrysler changed suppliers of the switch. The internal shift light and or (the prndl) was erratic, in which it would sometimes be highlighted.

The headlights go out while driving at night. Consumer would have to hold the light switch to keep the headlights on. Dealer was notified, and replaced the light switch.
