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.

Overhead dome map light stopped working smelled like burning it was safety issue because when I popped of the clear plastic cover I don't know why the van hadn't caught on fire yet. Half the base of the bulb was black, the plastic part of the socket was scorched, warped, melted and smelled burn and damaged console sockets. Clearly this was defective parts that should be the reason Chrysler changed the design and part but never notify consumers and issue recall. This is series safety issue fire and electrical damaged may cause serious injuries. I was told that dealer is not responsible and not interested helping and I need to pay $400 to change entire socket for two small light bulbs. When I call Chrysler corporate again I was told they can not help because I have old vehicle. This is clearly defective design and part unfortunately Chrysler would not take ownership and accountability to notify and repair this issue. Please see attached picture when I went to dealer for replacement bulbs for about $6 each I was told I need to replace entire console because they no longer have this defective bulbs when I popped of the clear plastic cover I wondered why the van hadn't caught on fire yet. Half the base of the bulb was black, the plastic part of the socket was scorched and warped damages console sockets

Inside of the dome drivers and passengers dome lights melted (apparently from heat of bulbs) and shorted bulbs. Loss of light is inconvenience/hazard....but it appears to be hot enough to cause fire or other electrical problem(s). This problem seems to have been reported multiple times by other owners.

The headlights randomly go out while the switch is in the on position. They may work fine for 10 minutes or an hour, then go dark. If I wiggle the headlight switch I can sometimes get them to come back on briefly, but it is truly hit and miss if they will stay on or not. There does not appear to be any particular 'sweet spot' on the switch and it does not appear to be affected by smooth or bumpy roads. It is quite scary and dangerous especially on the dark mountain roads I have to drive.

The driver's side map light is out. Went to replace the bulb and found that the bulb, socket and area the socket goes into was melted. Dealer says it is a common occurrence. $300 to replace. Read on line several other owners with the same experience but I do not see a recall.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated that while driving approximately 60 mph, the rear passenger tail light ignited into flames. The contact maneuvered to the side of the road and immediately exited the vehicle. The fire department extinguished the large flames and a police report was filed. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer for investigation to determine whether the fired originated within the headlight assembly. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 55,000.

Front courtesy lights have melted in their sockets and tail light is showing signs of starting to do the same. Turn signals have gone crazy: Sometimes they work as they should, other times they don't work at all, at times you have to use the lever over and over again to get them to engage. The worse part is that at times if you choose the right, the left comes on. We feel both of these issues could potentially be very serious safety issues. They both seem to be electrical issues the lights could present a fire hazard and the turn signals could be the cause of an accident.
