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.

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.

While traveling at a reduced rate of speed, my 2008 Town and country van shuts off. This has happened several times and has happened multiple times in a day. It is very frightening to be driving along and the engine shuts off and the vehicle loses all power. I have been told that my vehicle is under a ignition node recall. Today, I called my dealer and the representative claimed to have never heard of the Town and country shutting off while driving. I have seen many instances of this on the internet and have trouble believing the dealer has not heard of this. I am concerned for our safety while driving this car. Please advise as to what action I should take.
