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.

I just got the vehicle back from having repairs and the uconnect didn't work already. (which they claimed to have fixed didn't work again after only 20 minutes) I drove it back and left it for diagnosis. They diagnosed :sop special parts ordered. And I was told not to turn on dvd player until parts came in.

Having had this problem before and being told by the dealership, they could not find a problem, I thought maybe it was they key fob so I paid to have a new one made. Then the problem still continued and progressed: Now not only would the car go crazy with all lighting and power inside turning off and wipers going crazy, but now whenever the new key fob was used from the outside it would not unlock the doors but the dash would light up. The uconnect also stooped working completely! dealer diagnosed: Key failing fault stored for key in system that is failing,1 56046708ae trasnmtr-integrated key fob, cut new key and program to vehicle. 15 amp fuse blown, checked wiring G and found listing for 20 amp fuse. Replaced fuse and test operation.(since I never replaced any fuses, I don't even know where they are. I have to assume the wrong fuse was put in either during manufacturing or by a dealership) note: This did not solve the problem vehicle went back yet again. See additional complaints.

Key fob stopped working and all wipers went off on their own and would not turn off. The electronic vehicle monitoring system went off totally. All lights and power(radio window controls etc) inside the car turned off. The headlight went off. Then fine for about a week K the vehicle into the dealership and they said: Checked grounds to cluster. Fuses are working properly, so no repairs made at this time. A day later all of the above happened again! then again and again. On and off this went for a few days, until I could get it back in yet again to get looked at......nothing is fixed.

The blind spot monitoring system went crazy. It went on, the light turned orange and just stayed on and beeped repeatedly even when in park. The dealership could not figure out the problem so they sent it to another dealership, on 6/20/14 who diagnosed: Both blind spot monitors shorted part of mirrors. It went in for repairs: Replacement of L/R indicator sensors on 7//7/14. This was just the beginning of the problems to come.

I have a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country affected by NHTSA recall 14V234000 dated May 2014 for risk of electrical fire. I have contacted my local dealership several times and am told each time that repair part is still unavailable. Manufacturer recommends disabling the switch to reduce risk of electrical fire but this renders windows inoperable and I find it an unacceptable long-term solution. I called the Chrysler recall hotline on November 26, 2014 (more than 6 months after recall) and was told there is still no estimated time of arrival for repair part. I believe manufacturer has far exceeded a reasonable amount of time for recall repair.

-stalling when you try to start. I push the button and it stalls. When I get to my destination, it switches from off to accy. The stalling issue continues to get worse. Now, it acts as if it is trying to start the engine and nothing connects. This morning, it took approximately 10 tries to get it to turn over. This was after I had driven it a couple of miles. Then, when I arrived at work, it went into the accy mode again as I was opening the door to exit the vehicle. The dealer hooked it to their computer months ago. But, I guess if there is not code, the problem doesn't exist"??" the last time they suggested it was related to a transmission issue that they addressed.

When traveling to Florida from buffalo, the battery light on the dash came on just outside of orlando, Florida. It slowing started to affect the vehicle with the transmission not shifting and resulted in the engine running at 5000 RPM just to maintain 55 mph in a construction zone with no pull off to safely leave the highway. The battery finally died when we reached our destination and it was the alternator that had malfunctioned. The temperature that day was over 100 F. it could have caused an accident had I not overworked the engine.
