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.

Dakota Sport 4L, 6 cyl

ABS & Brake light is on all the time. I have repeatedly checked shoes and pads. shudders a little when brakes are applied. Calipers have had oversized bolts installed due to originals wont hold. Passes NYS inspection even with the ABS & brake lights on.

Dakota R/T

  • 62,000 miles

ABS and BRAKE light come on after about 1-2 miles of driving. Speedometer works fine but Cruise control does not engage. Checked trouble codes and got P1687 No MIC bus message no CCD. I have heard that it might be the VSS. But I have also heard otherwise. Not sure what to do.

Dakota 4WD

  • 60,000 miles

ABS and Brake light started staying on at startup. Happened intermittently at first and gradually happened more frequently until they were both on all the time. Eventually, truck would stall at stops and around corners. Speedometer would not work until around the time doors automatically locked (20-25mph). Shop replaced speed sensor. Problem resolved for 30 days. Same thing starting all over again.
