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.

Driver side sliding door motor begins to operate on its own while the vehicle is on or off. The vehicle has now been at a dealer 3 times for repair without any success. This time it also has caused complete failure of several battery cells causing the vehicle to be hazardous to driving as the vehicle does still start and drive, however, there are times it does shut off due tot he battery issue.

Vehicle gauge cluster shut down while driving 75 mph on the interstate. The dash warning lights/chimes go off and on, the wipers turn on, the A/C shuts down, no fuel gauge and most importantly no turn signals or speedo. I have narrowed it down to a bad blind spot sensor on the driver side. I cant believe a failed sensor would cause such safety hazard when the sensor is supposed to make the car safer. Very disapointed in Chrysler right now for shoddy craftsmanship.

Radio, gauges, turn signals, and ac randomly stop working. Wipers turn on at the same time. Some times for seconds, sometimes for hours. There does not seem to be a trigger as it has happened while driving on the highway, back roads and even stopped in the driveway. No way to reset the car once it is in dead radio/ac/gauges mode, it will only reset itself, again randomly. I tried pulling the battery cable and waiting, then re-attaching to no avail.

The contact owns a 2014 Chrysler Town and country. The contact stated that the function button on the steering wheel failed to work randomly along with the radio. The radio shorted out several times with a message on the display indicating that the screen was hot and that the navigation feature was not available. The contact had not pressed any function button for the navigation feature so it was unclear as to what was causing an increase in the temperature of the radio as well as the short. The vehicle was taken to the first dealer who was not able to replicate and diagnose the failure. The vehicle was taken to a second dealer who disconnected the radio and diagnosed that the radio needed to be replaced. The second dealer did not indicate what was causing the temperature increase. The contact was waiting on the part to receive the repair. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The failure mileage was not available.

When driving the van stalls, losing control and wheel locking up. I have to put the van in park to restart. This has been happening since Nov 2015. The current mileage is 29,000 miles. The van has been taken to the dealership for diagnosis and repair twice. The first trip resulted in no codes since they had been overwritten and the problem hadn't occurred in a reasonable time. The dealer placed a device in the car to take a snapshot when it happens. It happened and the codes P0016. The dealer replaced cam phasers-bank 1 (rear head). Then the car was ready for pickup and my wife didn't even make it out of the parking lot before stalling again. According to the repair statement dated on Jan 18,2016, nothing else had been accomplished. The dealer had been working with star technician support center to resolve this issue. My wife then stalled again this morning on Jan 26, 2016. This matter is very serious and should be handled before a life is lost driving. According to other complaints, there are 7 around the same mileage of the same make and model year of this van.

Headlights & wipers started coming on at the same time and I had no control over them. The wipers would say on for about 3-5 minutes and headlights would stay on for about 15-20 minutes. Next the radio would freeze up. Then the push button start would not always work the first time, had to repeat it a few times to start. Next alarms would go off in the car, with no symbols on the dash. Then the power 3rd row seat would move forward and revers with my grandson sitting in the seat. Car was unsafe to drive, too many electrical problems going on!
