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.

Battery failure last month followed by a tipm failure this month. Battery cost me $220 to replace. I found out it could have been caused by the tipm failure. 8/12/15 could not start car. I took it back to the dealer and they told me the tipm was not sending a signal to the fuel pump and had to be replaced. It was not covered and it cost me $1050.05 to replace. This seems to be a major issue with Chrysler vehicles.

When either using the keyless entry control or using the interior door lock controls the rh front passenger door will not lock/unlock using the electronic controls. Had been functional up to this point in time. Have to manually push down the lock button and to unlock, have to reach over and pull the door handle in order to unlock the door. Apparently a very common complaint for this model.

This is with regard to a Chrysler rear quarter vent window switch safety recall P25/NHTSA 14V-234. We received the recall around May 2014 and went to the local dealer shortly after. They did not have the part shipped from Chrysler and disconnected our vent window switch as a safety measure until the part comes in. We have checked numerous times and they still have not received the parts from Chrysler as of August 2015. The dealer appears to have done what they can and the hold up has been with Chrysler.

While traveling on an interstate highway, the check engine light lit-up on the dash. I pulled off the road and called my dealer which was located 15 miles away and was told that I may not make it back to them for service. The engine would quit. I did drive to the dealer without incident. The alternator was replaced by the dealer at a cost of $577.35. The cause of the failure of the alternator was not identified, 14V-634 does not include the Town and country but includes other Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep vehicles of the same year. I am requesting that this vehicle be considered for this recall.

Turn signal lamp on both mirrors defective. Cover comes off exposing the electrical board with the lights. Both sides not functioning. This appears to be a common issue on the internet. We have a Chrysler maximum care plan which it the best warranty Chrysler offers but this part is not covered. This item is for added safety but not functioning and I'm concerned exposed electrical boards to the weather could cause a short or fire.

Just purchase a used 2011 T&C, remote start and key less start, this morning my prego wife try to take my daughter to their camp, and car won't start, no error message, no battery problem indication, strangely enough, the accessory power was stayed on even when we try to lock it. After about 30 minutes of trying with no result, the car was suddenly turned on. Read in forums, seem to be a symptom of the tipm issue
