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.

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.

The vehicle is having issues turning on. It periodically will not start. We have purchased a new battery and that has not solved the issue. It is getting worse everyday and possibly affecting other electrical systems. It has left my wife stranded twice already in two weeks. This van has already had the cylinder replaced, headlamp, latch for rear seat, sensors, two batteries. It also shook violently and almost stalled on the railroad track in June of 2014. It appears that the tipm module is bad and it scares me to have my wife and children in this vehicle as it is no longer safe to drive. This needs to be addressed in a recall.

The vehicle shut off completely while being driven, on the way to coming to a stop. It would not restart. The vehicle was towed to the dealership where it was determined it had a faulty tipm, which was replaced for $1151. Upon picking the vehicle up from the dealership, it was noticed that both front turn signals were no longer working, and a warning box popped up about this issue. Also, a warning light of a battery appeared on the dash, and now the car has to return to the dealership for these issues. I feel the shutting off of the car could have been extremely dangerous, considering the bad weather (icy roads) and if I had been traveling at a higher speed.
