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.

Yesterday I got in my van and as soon as I turned it on I noticed that my dash light were flashing. I put the van in reverse and my horn honked a couple times on its own, then the windshield washer fluid started spraying. I drove straight to auto zone to have them put it on their machine to check to see what the problem was. Auto zone showed no problems. I continued on to my destination with no more problems. Today the same thing happened only worse!! my horn started blaring and did not stop windshield wipers both front and back were going!!! and all of my lights were on (parking lights, headlights, reverse lights)!! I turned the van off and got out horn still blaring and wipers still going, opened hood and realized the damn van was also still running!!!!!! no key in the ignition!!! long story short I had to unplug the battery and alternator to stop the madness!!! now I find out it is the tipm and its going to cost over $1000!!!! I have to double check and see if my extended warranty is going to cover it but I'm almost sure it won't!!! I am going to be more than irrate if I have to come out of pocket to fix something that obviously is faulty and should be recalled!!!!!!!! Chrysler!!!!

While driving I had all computer screens shut down on me, meaning going blank. My radio turned off, the dvd player shut off, as well as my driver panel lights. This is the first time it has shut off on me, usually when I turn on the van either those functions work or they don't work. I also have issues with the tps, ABS, lights flashing at me including the engine light. It randomally will come on and randomally go off. Chysler told me for $3,000-$4,000 I can have the van rewired and have no van for about a month. I can not and will not afford this. I have summited other complaints about this van including the module recall. I don't know what to do this van is a safety hazard and a money pit.

My van has a recall it is R03.. to replace the win module. I am on a waiting list which the dealership scranton Dodge is telling is very long. I contacted the dealer because the van is having starting issues. It will not start and my wife has gotten stranded several times with my six children in the van. When I jump the van it will start. I shouldnt have to feel this van is unsafe for my wife and kids to ride in, and why should I feel they are at risk every time they go into the van to go someplace.

We bought our 2008 Chrysler Town and country in may of 2014 used from kunes Ford antioch Illinois. The first time I went to use my electric start, about 15 mins after car was going the van started going crazy windshield wipers/ fluid horn blaring doors lock can't use the fobik key to unlock the only way to stop it was to disconnect battery. Couple months past and it started acting to where I would go to start the car and it would just click and would T start. It has done all of the listed above numerous times but now it is getting more and more. About 3 weeks ago it did it 7 times in one week 4 of those times I had my 4 children in the vehicle. While I am driving down the street it will start to do this craziness and then it will stall. Yesterday August 4 2015 it did it twice the second time it started with wipers while driving when I got home I parked it took the key out of ignition and the van was still running and doing the wipers the doors locked and I could T get it unlocked to get my children out of the car. I have had it at a Chrysler dealer for service for 2 weeks where the service manager drove it personally he was able to get it to do the same thing to him. I had my vehicle returned after two weeks charged $235 dollars and was told good luck to you we have no clue what's causing it. I have been in contact and complaining to Chrysler which I now have a case manager who could only tell me to take it to dealership while its in process to have it ran for codes which I did yeaturday and was laughed at but the service guys. I am at my wits end. This is the car we purchased for our family to be safe in but instead I am driving a death trap and no one has an answer or wants to help. Someone needs to do something about this this is a serious problem. I just googled it and found tons of complaints about same thing. This is an issue for sure!! please help!!!
