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.

2002 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #1

Dakota SLT 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,500 miles


The doors constantly lock themselves. Driving down the road and the locks are clicking to lock the car.

I've tried taking out the door lock switch on both the drivers and passenger sides, but it will still click, although less often after that. I have cleaned the battery terminals and ground wires, still not fixed. I've also tried to disable that auto-lock feature on it that locks the car after acceleration, but that did not fix the problem either. The best fix I have found is to turn the music on and try and ignore it. Which isn't really a fix at all.
