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.

Blind spot detection unavailable- I purchased a Dodge mopar 11 Charger that has a safety feature called blind spot detection. The blind spot indicators are located on the drivers and passengers side view mirrors. When a car approaches either side of the vehicle, a little orange triangle lights up to let the driver know that another vehicle is in its blind spot. In June of 2016, I started my car and and I got the "blind spot detection unavailable" error on my hud. In addition, both triangles on the side view mirrors were on. After conducting some research online, I found a way to turn off the blind spot detection system through the cars settings. However, the issue still persists and when the blind spot detection is turned on, the triangles light up and the system says its not available. This feature was not inclusive to just Dodge Chargers, but also other Chrysler vehicles with the blind spot detection system. There are several threads and videos online of disgruntled owners of Chrysler vehicles that have the same issue. I have learned from talking to the dealer, that my car (Dodge mopar 11 which has 36K miles on it) has two sensors that are located in the bumper of the vehicle that cost $1,100 a piece excluding installation of the new sensors. In essence, this is a "latent" safety defect of poor design and could potentially lead to the loss of life. If I had known that this safety feature was intrinsically defective, I would have never purchased this vehicle. Chrysler needs to acknowledge this defect in their blind spot detection equipped vehicles and issue a recall that resolves the safety issue.

The contact owns a 2011 Dodge Charger. While driving approximately 60 mph, the save battery, traction control, and the ABS warning light illuminated.

The contact also stated that the vehicle stalled and failed to restart. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 75,000.

While im driving home around approx. 10:30 pm. I was going uphill on a bridge in a curve when my headlights went completely out on my vehicle causing me to crash to the opposite side of the bridge in the on-coming traffic lane. There also were a couple vehicles approaching a couple hundred yards away in front of me. So I had to stop my vehicle in the middle of the road. I had to leave my vehicle on the side of the road for the remainder of the night because my headlights didn't come back on at all. I really feared for my life that night.

When I turn on my turn signals the windshield wipers go on! this happens 2 to 3 times I put the turn signal on then does not do it next time and then again the next 3 times I use the turn signals. Mostly happening with left turn signal. The wipers do not stop until you turn off the turn signal. Something must be wrong with the electrical wiring or switch.

Driver-side low beam bulb appeared to be burned out - took to dealer and they found the wiring harness was burned (just as described in recall M05 for police vehicles) and had to be replaced. I really wish they had replaced both sides since they had it all apart (have to take bumper off to get to headlights which is another sad story) - they covered this fix but only because I had vehicle on extended warranty this should be a passenger vehicle recall too. Now I have to wait around for it to happen to passenger- side (or to driver side again, since cause of harness melting seems likely to be something deeper than just the harness/wiring itself - voltage regulation or "?" I don't know, but replacing it with the exact same part doesn't seem like a permanent solution).
