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.

Our 2010 Town and country minivan has been stalling since Q1 of 2014. We have taken it to normanden in san jose, ca numerous times to have them diagnose the problem. We have left it with them on each occasion to drive it with their diagnostic computer and they have never been able to find a code telling them what to fix. On Dec. 27 we took it back in to normanden after it stalled 19 times in the previous 7 days. We left the car with them while we were on vacation for 12 days, and asked them to have their lead mechanic drive it home every day with the computer on it to see if they could get it to fail. It did fail, but we were told that he did not have the computer on it at the time. We also were told that it did not fail for him since then with the computer on it. I just talked to our service writer [xxx], and he said again, without a code they are not able to fix the problem. They cannot try swapping parts like the main computer, because they will not get reimbursed by Chrysler, if does not fail when they send it back. My wife drives this car every day, as I do not drive. She takes me to work and baby sits our 2 beautiful grand children who live 75 miles North of us. Every time it stalls, the power steering no longer works and the power assisted breaks do not stop the car very well without a lot of pressure on the brake pedal. She has to drive in the right lane in case it stalls so she can try to coast to a safe spot to restart the car. She has almost been hit from behind which is a very scary and dangerous situation. She and I are always scared that we will be hit by someone, putting us and our grandkids in danger. I hope you can help us get these problems fixed, or a new car, before one of us is injured or killed. We will be more than happy to give you more details if you will call either my wife or me.

Several times while in normal driving conditions, the engine simply shut off. No power steering, no power brakes. Luckily there was no traffic behind us. We wiggled the ignition key and the engine started back up. This has happened to me twice in the last month and to my wife numerous time over the past couple of months.

The 2010 Chrysler Town and country uses a key fob to turn on the engine. I tried to start my car and got a "bad key" error warning. I retrieved my backup key fob and tried again and received another "bad key" error. Two keys and neither works leaving the car inoperable. Only a Chrysler dealer can program the key and the car must be towed in to do so. One dealer is quoting a price of $352 for the key kit and $291 for labor (not including towing). The "cheaper" dealer wants $95 to run a test and $400-$500 for the wireless ignition node. Chrysler is the only one who can program the keys for the vehicle and the secondary garages and shops are not allowed to perform the repairs. Chrysler forces their customers to pay between $400 - $700 for a key is a complete rip-off.

Headlights randomly turn off. At first you could mess with the headlight switch and they would come back on now they will not. They flash about 5 times and neither the headlights or the brights will work. I was driving on the expressway and they shut off this is very scary and dangerous as I could not see a thing. The only lights that will work is the fog lights. I have googled this and it looks like there are numerous complaints. We have tried to replace the headlight switch with no luck the dealership does not know what could be wrong with it. This is very frustrating and there needs to be a recall for these vans this is outrageous!!! we have 3 soon to be 4 small children and this is just not safe, we can not even drive our van at night time due to the fear the headlights will not work. They will work for a day maybe 2 and then go back to not working. Please help!!!

Received recall notice and took vehicle to local dealer for replacement of switch. They advised that switch was not available. They unhooked the switch. We still have not been notified of any replacement parts. Are the parts still unavailable or are we insignificant?
