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.

I am writing in regard to the wireless ignition module recall that affects my vehicle. I would like to lodge a complaint against the dealership: Mcgrath auto 1616 51st St ne cedar rapids, IA52402 sales:(877) 226-0908 service:(888) 903-7864 parts:(888) 903-7864 this dealership has* fixed this defect within a reasonable amount of time. We have called this dealership regarding this recall in late June and on July 15. Each time we were told that the parts would have to be ordered and we would be contacted when they were in stock. My vehicle has started exhibiting the symptoms of the defect associated with this recall and has started shutting off while we are driving the vehicle. We called the dealership today (September 4) to state that we had a safety issue and needed the vehicle fixed immediately. The dealership said they had the parts but requested we leave the vehicle with them all day rather than the 'one hour to complete' the recall notice states. Since we live approximately 30 miles from the dealership I asked for a loaner vehicle if we were going to be without our vehicle for a day and was told no loaner vehicle was available. I then asked for the next available appointment and was told they couldn't get me in for a week. We now have an appointment on September 11 at 1pm. I am concerned that my vehicle is going to continue to exhibit this defect while driving and put my safety and the safety of my family in jeopardy. I am appalled by the lack of urgency this dealership has exhibited in dealing with this recall on my vehicle and I would like them to be reprimanded. Thank you, [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The contact owns a 2010 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated while driving 65 mph with the cruise control activated, the vehicle accelerated independently. The vehicle was merged to the shoulder and the contact engaged the service brakes. However, the brakes failed to engage and the vehicle continued to rev. The contact mentioned that the vehicle stalled after placing the key into auxiliary mode but the failure recurred once the vehicle was restarted. The vehicle was taken to a dealer. The technician was unable to diagnose the failure but decided to install a recorder on the vehicle. The contact stated that the failure recurred while driving 35 mph. All lights on the instrumental panel illuminated, and the door locks, air conditioning and radio failed. The dealer analyzed the recording and diagnosed that the win module would need to be replaced. The manufacturer stated that the VIN was not included in NHTSA campaign number: 11V139000 (electrical system). The vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was approximately 72,000.

The ignition turns off. This has happened to me approximately 5 -6 times. Turning a corner, hitting a small bump in the road or just driving. Sometimes I hear the click of the key turning or just feel the loss of acceleration. The car turns off. Most of the time I have been able to put the car in neutral and restart it without any incident. There have been close calls of vehicles avoiding me while I recover from this happening. The problem is fields Chrysler dealership in glenview Illinois wants to charge me $700 to fix this. They claim they replaced the ignition already under the recall which they did a year ago. This is not my problem that the ignition is turning off again!!!!! did you ever hear of a recall on a recall? please help me!!!! I have a 15 yr old son learning to drive and I also drive small children around. I have left several messages with the service mgr at this dealership and with customer service but noone is calling me back.

The headlights dim, the radio stops, the four lights directly over the speedometer come on and off, the speedometer drops to zero when the dummy lights come on. Periodically the vehicle shuts of as it is moving. This all started happening after the NHTSA campaign #11V139000 recall on the ignition was replaced. It has been to three separate Chrysler dealers a total of seven times. It has been out of service for more than 30 days. Neither Chrysler nor the dealer wants to resolve this problem. They want to sell me a new car!

The ignition key was displaced from run to accessory without being touch. This is identical to the win module recall for this model which we had replaced last year. I have seen the same thing on this site many times. The dealership reports that this is "similar" but not the "same." If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it is a duck. Please do not let them pull this on the consumer! don't just look at all the complaints and nod your head. Do something!!! we are struggling financially like so many other people and now Chrysler isn't going to honor what really should be part of the recall. Don't wait until there is a crash and death! we were going 70 miles per hour down an interstate and suddenly had not brake lights or turn signal. We were very lucky! we have been told the part is on back-order and will take at least a month! high demand for that part, isn't it"?"

On 6 occasions so far, my van has died with no warning while I have been driving in traffic. The engine light has never come on to indicate any problems. On the first 3 occasions I was driving straight in completely dry conditions when the anti slip indicator came on, stayed on, and then the van died. On the last 3 occasions no indicators came on. The van just died with no warning. We were part of the 11V139000 recall, but all of the incidents of the van dieing has happened since that recall. As I investigated this problem on the internet I received over 53,000 hits from 2010 Town and country owners experiencing this same problem. When will Chrysler be required to take responsibility for this problem and fix it before a major accident affects my family? 11V139000 recall anti slip light stuck on.
