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 #2

May 012016

Caravan Sport 3.3L 6 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


2 wks ago driving along my speedometer went crazy. The speed, tach , temp and fuel gauges pegged out and the needles went to zero and the speedometer completely turned off. The van stayed running normal and everything else worked except the turn signals which is dangerous and makes me very susceptible to a ticket . Also occasionally the speedometer starts working again and the needles bounce around and then it works fine intermittently . When it works it will lose power immediately and not work for an extended time if I use the turn signal. Don't know for sure but believe the turn signal and cluster are on the same circuit . Last week I had a new Interstate battery installed, still acts the same.
