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.

when the van is started and the running lights come on only the left one is on when the driving lights are put on the left one goes out and the right one comes on when switched to high beam the right goes out and the left comes on. the two lights are never on at the same time. It is a royal pain in the ass and an invitation to get pulled over by the cops.

The headlights seem to work only one at a time. One headlight is the high beam and the other is the low beam. There is only one light on at a time even when I switch the high beams on or off. Vary rarely do both headlights work together at the same time.

My Caravan is experiencing headlight problem. The right day running headlight does not work when the headlights are off, and the left headlight doesn't work when the headlights are on. Dodge Dealer advised me that the IDM needs to be changed and possibly another module as well. Total estimate is $1,000.00. Please advise what I should do?
