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.

Chrysler issued recall R03 involving the wireless ignition node module. This recall was issued approximately 8 months ago. Despite repeated phone calls to many local dealers and the Chrysler hotline, Chrysler has not made the parts available to the dealers so that the safety defect can be fixed. This is an ongoing safety concern which Chrysler has been aware of for years, however this corporation refuses to spend the time and resources to make the appropriate parts available to cure the problem. Per my most recent phone call to Chrysler, the part is still on back order and they are unable to provide any sort of timeline as to when this will become available. What use is a recall, if Chrysler refuses to work in good faith towards fixing the problem? please help is pressuring Chrysler to take the appropriate actions to make the parts available to the dealers can provide the necessary service. Thank you.

The tipm is defective to my Town and country model. The horn will blare, the front and back windshield wipers go on, the doors lock and unlock. And more importantly the transmission will not go past 30mph. This has happened to me more than once while going on the freeway at 60mph. It has also happened after I parked the car. When the car is parked, and this happens, it actually turns the engine on! something needs to be done as I am not the only person with this issue.

I have received (3) individual recall notices, going back to around 2014-15 concerning an "important safety recall" concerning "wireless ignition node module defects. I immediately contacted the local dealership I purchased the car from, friendship Chrysler in bristol, tn, and was told I would be placed on a waiting list. Today's date is January 23, 2016, I have since received two additional notices, but have only been told by the dealership that the part is not in and I am on a waiting list. This is a major safety issue involving a van that is typically purchased to "safely" Transport families. I think the delay is insane. Please tell me what the holdup is?
