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.

As I was pulling into gas station parking spot the van shut off. Aaa came and tried to jump start van, it would not even turn over. The lights inside the van still came on and it still started with the automatic start. I had to have van towed to service station. The service station said it is the win that needs to be replaced and Chrysler is having so many problems with this right now that the part is on back order for 3-4 days. They said there is no recall for this, but according to the new safety recall advanced communication L25070114 letter sent out on 07/01/2014, it state the win module may have unintentional movement that could cause the engine to shut off. It says Chrysler will conduct a voluntary safety recall to interrogate the win module using witech scan tool and certain win modules will have a secondary win detent system installed. Can you tell me why the dealership is telling me my van does not apply to the recall? thank you

While driving at various speeds the warning bell sounds, then the air bag warning icon lights, then all other warning icons light, then all gauges go dead for about a second, the the front wipers swipe 2-4 times. After that, if the air bag warning icon light stays on, the entire process will reoccur every few minutes. Sometimes it will stop after a few iterations, sometimes it will go on for hours. The problem seams to be more prevalent after the vehicle has been parked in the hot sun. Sometimes, disconnecting the battery's negative cable for at least 30 minutes will reset it until it is parked in the sun.
