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.

While driving, the SRS light appeared on the dashboard and remained on. The consumer informed the mechanic a recall for this vehicle (04V48000) for the clock spring. This vehicle was not included in the recall but the consumer had the same problem. Please fill in additional information.

Air bag light intermittently comes on while driving, dealer diagnosed problem as faulty "clockspring" in the steering wheel. This same problem existed and was under recall in previous year Caravan. Called Chrysler about issue and was told it was not their issue since the vehicle has 50K miles and the vehicle warranty expired at 36K. This is a safety issue since the air bag will not deploy in the event of a accident. I paid the dealer to replace the clockspring at a cost of $225. Since this vehicle was recalled for the same issue less than 3 years earlier I do not believe this safety issue was adaquately resolved.

Please note that repairs were done by patalano Chrysler in franklin MA. 508-520-1550 - got a good deal at motorquest which is far from my home....my car has been in three times to solve the problem of the airbag light not going out after a few moments....the first repair, which only worked for a few miles was to the "wiring" and the last two repairs have been to replace a "clockspring" in the steering column I believe....my concern is that if I try to keep this vehicle I will have to replace (at approx. $300 a pop) the clockspring every 8000 miles or so. I wanted you to be aware in case this is a manufaturer's defect, as opposed to a bit of bad luck on my part.
