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.

My power door locks have stopped working multiple times. After reading other complaints it is obviously a defect. I'll share a quick fix with other complainants: Open your hood. If you stand at your driver side front fender, remove the cover from your fuse box. Remove the 20 amp fuse at the far bottom left corner for 10 seconds and then put it back in, it's an easier fix than disconnecting the battery cable.

I have a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. The power door lock stop working when the wireless remote is press it will not lock the doors. If I disconnect the negative terminal of the battery and leave it disconnected for 5 minutes it will work again. I have to do this every other day. I hear same people having this problem have taking the car back to the dealer and the dealer have charge $130 to reprogram the BCM. If so many people in the internet are having the same problem the dealer should not be charging this crazy amount since is problem with the software in the BCM.
