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.

Approximately September 10 2015 my car would not crank. I took it to the Chrysler Dodge dealership where they said it was my battery. I paid for a new battery, and within a week my car wouldn't crank again. I took it back to the dealership where now they were saying that its an win wireless ignition node module. There's been a recall for my year make and model, however my specific VIN number is not showing up for a recall, and the dealership said that it will be over $1,000 to fix it.

I am the fleet supervisor for the orange county sheriffs office. We have two vehicles that have the same problems as in the recall 10V200000, or the chry recall #K08. Our local dealership says that our vehicle VIN numbers are not in the recall. They want me to pay $1129 per vehicle to get the problem fixed. If they know that a problem exist, why will they not take car of the problem we are having with our units ?

I received a "fix-it" warning from the Nevada highway patrol due to a non working "3rd brake light". checking the fuse and the led bulb did not solve the problem, an internet search told me to check the wire harness between the body of the vehicle and the truck lid. I noticed that several vehicles of the same type and for several year models have the same problem. When I pulled back the rubber from the wire I found 5 out of 6 wires in the harness broke in the same place. I reconnected the wires matching the color codes and this solved the problem. ( I also found out I have a trunk light !! ) the local service dept and also Dodge customer service denied there was an issue and did not accept responsibility.

The key fob will not work with car, will not open the car, start the car without several attempts to use the key. Even after replacing the batteries and reprogramming new keys key fobs fail to open doors or turn car on. I also have been looking online for similar malfunctions thousands of Dodge car owners are having the same problem. I have been stranded in the middle of no where because the key would not start my car nor would the spare. I spoke with the Dodge dealer as well as Dodge corporate office they said there is nothing wrong but thousands of people are having the same problem where Dodge is charging $1000 - $2000 to fix the problem however that does not fix the problem a lot of the time. I please ask that you look into this it is a dangerous malfunction in any situation where you may need your car in a moments notice and it does not work. Key fobs from 2009 - on fail to work with car. Does not unlock doors does not start car without attempting to use the fob over and over.
