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 4.9L

  • Automatic transmission

It dies when you turned off the key , gas gauge still up until you do turn off the key then turn key back on and it don't come up and won't start until gauge does come up, sometime you can move wires on computer and it helps, sometimes not

Dakota Sport 3.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 41,632 miles

The first time this problem started it was simply annoying. The second got a little worrisome. Then when It wouldn't start it was a real bother. An older car I could have probably fixed, but with the computer stuff, I haven't got a clue. Any suggestions would be appreciated
