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.

Starting in Dec. 2014 my vehicle would not start, it just clicked and clicked but would not start. The dealer said the wire harness needed replaced but they only spliced the cable and replaced the battery terminals which did not fix the problem and later both cables spliced melted. The starter had to be replaced but still had the starting problem, start sometimes or would click, click, click however many times until it started. It has been into the dealer 4 times and still going back again after replacing the ignition switch and finally putting in a new harness August 17, 2015, had it back one day and 35 clicks later it started; will be taking back to the dealer next week to continue searching for why it keeps doing this. I fear that it will just turn off and stop in the street again as it did Aug. 5, 2015, that was so scary! I have seen forums online that has person after person complaining of the same problem. That is why I decided to write a compliant here. Before all of this at the dealer it would not start so put in a new battery but it did not fix the problem. Intermittent problems make it so hard to know when it will happen or not.

Administrator, I received the above recall in late may of 2015. I called jake sweeney Chrysler Plymouth to schedule the work for this recall. They informed me that I could have the work completed on June 23, 2015 so I made an appointment. I showed up on the 23rd of June and I was told that there were no parts available for the recall above and that I should call back in two weeks and check on the status of the parts. I came back after the two week period of time and was told that the parts are still not available and I was put on a waiting list. I was told that when the parts came in I would be contacted. After an additional two weeks I was told that there were no parts available and that I should speak with [xxx] in parts. He made several attempts to have the parts sent to the dealership but over a period of several days was told that there are no parts to send him. Two days ago I called the fca group recall assistance center and after three attempts I was told that I am on a waiting list at jake sweeney Chrysler Plymouth and they will call me when the part is available. I am number 10 on their list. The recall assistance group checked all of the dealers in the greater cincinnati area and that is the best they can do. So I have a recall that is 60+ days old with no time frame for when I can have the repairs completed. Any assistance you can give will be appreciated. Sincerely, [xxx] 2008 Chrysler Town and country [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
