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.

1998 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 032004

Dakota 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles


Fan blower going on and off. No defrost, heat, ac available when blower is off. Seems like a lot of people are having this same problem. It is a 1998 Dakota. Everyone is saying the problem is a resistor, which is hard to get to. Seems as if the whole dash has to come off to get to this area. The dealership wants $85. For diagnostic. Close to $200-$300 problem for only a $9-$12 part. Sad just another problem for the Dodge lovers.
