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.

Re: recall P25. I took my car into Chrysler dealer this am. They said they did not have part. My car needs the parts for green lights. If I had blue lights, they have plenty of parts. I was told they had no idea when the parts would come in. First the technician told me to follow up with him in a few weeks. Finally he said he would order the part but didn't think there were any, anywhere. It would not help me to go to another dealer...no one has the part. He did not say anything about disconnecting the wires (as the message suggested when I called Chrysler). Not happy, I called the vehicle safety hotline and got a reference #763877. They told me to call Chrysler direct. After being on hold with Chrysler for an hour, I decided to write up this complaint. Where are the parts for the green light cars"?" I don't think there are any representatives at the Chrysler 800 number. Terrible service.

Received recall notice from Chrysler Corp. For control switch on driver's armrest for rear vent windows, warning that the switch might malfunction and start fire. I took car to dealer as recommended for disconnection of switch and was informed that replacement switch was not currently available but I would be informed when replacements were received by dealer. Since then I have not received notice of replacement availability and when I contacted dealer they said they had not yet received replacement part. Since 8 or 9 months have now transpired since I could use my rear vent windows I am very disappointed. This seems to be an unusually long delay to replace a relatively simple component that requires less than 5 minutes to remove and replace!

As with other 2011 Town and country owners, blind spot detection system went bad. System is latched in error mode. System has to be disabled to prevent blind spot indicator lights on both mirrors to be constantly on. This seems to be a safety issue in that when the lights are on, driver can be distracted. Vehicle only has 50,000 miles.

I was driving the vehicle and all the gauges stopped working. A day later my wife went to crank the car and it will not crank or turn over at all. Dealer says the tipm. I have seen that this is a common problem with this vehicle and my concern is with the gauges not working while my wife is driving or the car to stop running.

This electrical problem has occurred 10 times since I bought the used vehicle in 8/2014. It has happened at stoplights and while I've been driving. All the lights on the dash go out, they all come back on like you are just starting the van and the windshield wipers go off as well. It has happened when I've been in park, making a left hand turn into oncoming traffic, driving down the road (45 mph) and waiting at a stoplight. Most recently on 2/6/15 it did it 2 times while I sat at the same stoplight. I have nothing additional hanging from the key fob and even tried the 2nd key fob I have and the same problem occurs.
