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.

Tipm replaced for $1101.91. The car would stall in the middle of busy road (with children in the car) when driving, and would not start other times (would crank but not turn over). When we took it to the dealership, we had to wait 3 weeks to get the repair because we were number 23 on the list of people needing the part.

Was leaving work when my check engine light came one, along with the traction control light and the brakes got hard. Car stopped, turned it off to turn it back on, and it would not start. All lights, radio, etc came on, but engine would not turn over or engage. Do not think fuel pump was engaging either. Tried numerous things, including the tipm bypass and it still will not start. 90% plus of my driving is highway. I got very lucky that this system failure happened when it did, as a few minutes later and I would have been on a very busy highway, as well as if it had happened on my way to work.

Blind spot indicator has stopped functioning around 47,500 miles. The cluster periodically chimes that the blind spot indicator system is not available and the indicator lights remain lit. So a safety feature has become a distraction and now is a safety risk. I called the dealer to inquire if this is a known problem and was told to call Chrysler since this failure is "happening left and right." He advised me the repair is roughly $2,000 and was surprised it has not been recalled yet. I contacted Chrysler and they told me that the recall process is very long and gave me a bit of a run around. I asked them if it would help them expedite the recall process if I contacted NHTSA, so here it is.

I have received many notices recalling the rear quarter vent window switch. I have called my dealer several times and each time I have been told they do not have the part and will contact me when the part is available. The dealer I have contacted is dupage Chrysler # 630-446-1400. This has been going on for about two years. What a joke!

My vehicle has been having trouble starting when stationary. The most frightening thing is what happened to me yesterday. While in motion, my car stalled on a major city highway. I luckily maintained control of the vehicle and made it to the shoulder. The mechanical diagnosis is a bad tipm (totally integrated power control module)

While driving my vehicle on the highway at an estimated speed of 60 mph, for no reason at all, various warning/indicator lights started to flash (not all in unison) and the odometer speed indicator (digital numbers) went up & down as the car seemed to be stalling/missing. For a second it seemed to right itself then the engine completely shut down losing all power - electrical (all), power steering, power brakes, etc. And we were forced to coast to a stop in the breakdown lane. After waiting a few minutes I was able to start the car and it seemed that every thing was normal for the last 10 miles or so of my drive.this is the second time it has happened in the past 2-3 years which is a long period but alarming because both times were while driving on the highway. When it does happen you can't safely control the car once it shuts down - limited control at best. After the first time, I took it to the Chrysler dealer in kent oh (klaben) who services my vehicle because of the warranty and I trust them. They had a service technician and a manager both drive the van over the course of a few days (including highway travel) and couldn't duplicate the failure. Diagnosis was a possible computer glitch and since that diagnosis it hasn't happened again until tonight 2/10/16. It may be the computer but I will drive it tomorrow and see if it runs ok. If it does I probably won't take it back in (unless someone knows something) but I wanted to share the issue in the event anyone else has experienced the same problem. A computer glitch (if it is) is not like a reboot on the home computer.this failure both times has happened in light traffic. My fear is that in heavy traffic trying to pull over safely without any power and lights could lead to a major incident/accident. I should have my record of the (no) repair from klaben and they should also have in their data base.

The contact owns a 2011 Chrysler town country. While driving 50 mph, the steering wheel shook and made a humming noise. The failure occurred on numerous occasions. In addition, the blind spot sensor malfunctioned and created a constant beeping noise. Furthermore, the windows opened and closed by themselves. The vehicle started and locked from the inside on its own many times. Lastly, the brake pads melted and were replaced more than once. The vehicle was taken to be diagnosed, but was not repaired. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 58,000.

2011 T&C, 50300 miles, having several ongoing problems with hard starts, hard shifting, power doors not staying open, closes automatically, extremely poor gas mileage.have had into dealer several times for these issues while under warranty and now again having problems and of course vehicle out of warranty. Vehicle has started by its self and have found power doors open when I returned to my vehicle. My current main problem is the ongoing issue of hard starts and now problem has escalated to crank and crank no fire, have to attempt several times (20-30), vehicle then will eventually fire RPM race to 3-4000rpms then stall, again several times of shutting off and attempting to start, eventually it starts sometimes taking 30 minutes to get it running. Also just today while driving vehicle attempted to stall rpms decrease, thankfully it did not stall as I was driving with my children in the vehicle in rush hour traffic. Definitely very concerned as this is a serious safety issue and an inconvenience. What happens when you are driving on the freeway going 70mph and the vehicle stalls, Chrysler definitely needs to do something due to severity of a safety issue
