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.

problem #1

  • 85,000 miles
The contact owns a 2002 Dodge Caravan. While driving approximately 70 mph the vehicle began to decelerate independently and lose power. The failure was sporadic. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostics where the technician stated that the power train control module would have to be replaced. The failure recurred after repairs. In addition, when the turn signal was activated the opposite turn signal light would illuminate erroneously and the oil warning light was illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic where the mechanic advised that the power train control module would need to be replaced a second time. The vehicle was repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 85,000.
