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.

When driving, I pressed brake pedal to stop the car and heard a screech noise, car trembled a bit and came to a stop. When I continued to drive within a couple of minutes the ABS light came on and the electrical stability light came on. It turned off for a couple of hours later, but it turned on again the next day in the morning when I started the vehicle and has stayed on since.

While driving and preparing to turn my vehicle took control and I was no longer able to break or turn. Thankfully there was nobody in the neighbor at the time and with less than a foot from hitting the stop sign I was able to stop. I took it to the dealer where I purchased (1.5 years prior)and they said nothing was wrong just needed a new battery. I insisted this was not the issue so the manager had his associate test drive to come to the same conclusion the steering and brake system is fine. Not happy I left after purchasing the battery and here we are 1.5 weeks later with the same issue. I tried to drive out of work yesterday and I lost control to my steering and it locked. I put my car in park and tried once more the same thing happened, I then try to restart but it would not allow me to do so. I had to disconnect the battery and it started. Not feeling safe for my life I left the car at work and still do not want to drive it. From what I am reading I am not the only 2014 Dodge Charger having this issue. I need this fixed if I was on the freeway who knows what would have happened.

The contact owns a 2014 Dodge Charger. While driving approximately 65 mph, the vehicle stalled without warning. After restarting, the vehicle resumed normal operation. The failure recurred on three separate occassions. In addition, the ABS and anti-skid warning indicators illuminated during braking as the brake pedal traveled to the floorboard. The brake functioned properly within seconds. The failure recurred sporadically. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for diagnostic testing; however, a failure code was not detected. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 15,000.

While driving on a town road at about 35 mph, the warning lights for the ABS and ESC systems lit. I subsequently determined that the vehicle cruise control also no longer functioned. I contacted Chrysler since the vehicle recently had a recall performed for alternator replacement, and symptoms included in that recall - Chrysler P60 / NHTSA 14V-634 - indicate that modes of failure may include disabling ABS and ESC. Chrysler stated that "sometimes they may need to do the recall again". brought vehicle to dealer. Diagnosed as a sensor failure. I had to pay for repairs.service writer stated that this failure happens on these cars quite frequently, and even "guessed" correctly what needed to be replaced before the tech worked on it. ESC and ABS are both significant safety systems.

While driving approximately 35 mph, the vehicle suddenly shut off and the driver was unable to steer or stop the vehicle before crashing into a tractor trailer and a guardrail. The driver sustained an injured back during the incident, but did not require medical attention. A police report was not filed. Prior to the incident, the failure occurred on multiple occasions and the vehicle was serviced by the dealer who replaced the ABS sensor, ABS module, transmission module, and the main computer, but the failure continued to occur. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The VIN was invalid. The failure mileage was 26,000.

Two of the lights on the instrument cluster warning were on:ESC(electronic stability control) and ABS.I took my car for service at the dealer and I was told to leave it for repairs. After four days I received a phone call which I got informed that the replacement part was out of stock and it need to be order and they told me that even though the car needed repairs it was safe to drive it until the part arrives.after two weeks, I visited again the dealer and the part was not there and now and I have to wait and I also needed to be place in a waiting list in which I would have number 254 (those are the amount of cars which needs to replaced the same part). In my last visited to the dealer I informed that the car is worse because now it has strange vibration when pressing the brake and makes noise. After all this issues is very hard for me and I can feel safe driving the car.
