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.

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

Yesterday while driving in town my engine stalled, and the horn started blaring. Not honking or alarm sound, but solid blaring. My wipers turned on high, and the windshield wash started spraying all over. Front and rear wash and wipers. My reverse lights were on, even though the vehicle was in park. Also, the fan inside the van for the heater/ac isn't working. This spell lasted 3-5 minutes. Afterward, I was able to restart the van and continue on my way. Today, the same thing happened, shortly after starting the vehicle. 2 of the 3 times happened while I was driving on the street, approx 25-30 mph.

While driving in town, approximately 25 miles an hour, my engine shut off, and I lost power steering, and brakes due to the engine being off. The horn was blowing constantly, not honking or alarm sounding, but blaring. My wipers were on high, and windshield wash was spraying all over. My reverse lights were on, even though the vehicle was in park. I was able to restart the vehicle after this spell stopped. About 3-5 minutes. The next day, (today) the very same thing happened within a few minutes of starting the vehicle. And the spell lasted about 5 minutes. It has happened twice today. First the horn started blaring, then the wipers turned on high, and windshield wash started spraying, and the engin stalled. Even upon removing the key, and opening the door, the above listed problems continued for 5 or more minutes. Also, the fan, for the heat/ac isn't working right now either. It comes and goes.

I received a recall notice for my 2008 Chrysler Town and country back in may of 2015. The recall number is R03 and has to do with the wireless ignition node module. I have been on a "waiting list" with my local Chrysler dealership in titusville fl for months and every time I call I am still "number 6 on the waiting list". I am concerned for the safety of myself and my family. It is not logical that the dealership has receive zero parts for this important recall in all these months. Please assist.
