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 Dakota has been good to me and it is not my first one. I love the truck to death and it has been extremely reliable. It does have very high miles because it has been used as a storm chasing truck, but it has been more than taken care of. The four wheel drive is used regularly through out the winter and I've never had a problem with it. It has never been taken off road and beaten for enjoyment. I recently took it down to the local kids mudding trail to get to the river to go fishing. On my way down i didn't even use the four wheel drive because it wasn't even enough to get my tires dirty. On the way out there was a fairly steep loose gravel incline so i put it in 4x4 part time to make sure i wasn't going to have any problems. When i got to the top i put it back in 2 wheel, waited a second then quickly tapped the gas to make sure 4 wheel was off, it was. Now my 4 wheel part time light wont shut off. Its really gonna piss me off cuz the truck is near mint condition and i dont feel i should have this problem at all. The transfer case is disengaged and its not in 4 wheel. What the hell is going on?
