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 have a 1998 Dodge van Caravan. Intermittently the cruise control star to fail, some time would turn on other times would not work at all and then died then the horn quit working and then E few weeks later the air bag light came on and stayed on. Few weeks after that the van at parked would start then shut off; start shut off. It does that five times and then it dies. 20 minutes later it would start just fine. A friend of mine call to my attention that there were a few recalls on this van. One of them was the clock spring and the rear sound barrier/outboard seat belts. The clock spring was replaced. The horn and the air bag light stats off but the cruise control light comes on by it self and the shuts off by it self. The cruise control still no engaging. The other problem with engine not stating, it was good for a while after the clock spring was replaced but after four weeks is doing it again along with when I am driving it wont be no function on the panel. It blacks out and no gauges activity ( speedometer, RPM :panel light: Temp;gas;etc;etc. Please let me know if these problems are related to any recalls. Thank you so much for your time.
