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.

We received another recall notice R03/NHTSA 14V-373 which is the 3rd recall we have received in the last two years. We have attempted to go to our dealer to have this recall completed but our dealer continues to tell us that they are not receiving enough parts to complete this recall. I contacted fca back in November and was told that our dealer would have the parts mid-December. I contacted out dealer yesterday, 12/14/2015, and was told that they still are not receiving parts and we are #45 on a their list. No one seems to know why these parts are not being sent.

The tipm is a cause of the vehicle horn honking, wipers moving on their own, wiper fluid spraying, and the lights flashing by themselves. I have had the vehicle randomly stall by itself on the highway while my wife was driving it and this has happened several times. These issues seem to mysteriously go away when I try to diagnose the issue. Last week the battery died and because of it being a few years old and now being in the winter, I decided to replace it only to have it die again a day later. Took the vehicle to a mechanic who tested the charging system and said it was all good. Then proceeded to do a parasitic draw test where he determined that the tipm was causing the issues. I did some google searches and found that this is a wide stream problem with many owners of various Chrysler vehicles having the same issue. This is not safe especially when the vehicle shuts down while driving it and there are no power brakes or steering capabilities. A person could end up in a terrible accident or even be killed not to mention other drivers being at risk also. Doesn't seem to make much sense that Chrysler is dragging this on and not doing anything not to mention that I can't even order the part because it's on a national back order. This has happened several times in the last year and a few times last year but the tech was unable to correctly diagnose the issue.
