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.

Dodge said they had never heard of this problem however it would be $1,200.00 to service

there was no service code error so I tried changing obvious electrical components. After $700+ in new parts a man in line behind me at the Dodge Parts counter told me it was the Cam Sensor $55.00. I changed it out in 5mins. (1) bolt and (1)plug in fitting and never had another problem. Dodge returned my E-mails 4 weeks later saying that this was a new unheard of problem that a dodge service Technician could handle. YEAH $1,200 for a $55.00 parts DODGE wil never get me back They suck!
