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.

No headlights, no door locks, no 4 wheel drive, no delay wipers. This needs to be a safety recall, can you imagine going 55 mph and going around a curve in the dark and you lose your head lights. not safe.

Dakota 4.7L V8

The problem was instant, and you don't know til you are unable to use your keyless entry remote. So at first you think, oh the battery went dead in the remote. Then the doors won't unlock with the power doorlock switch. So now you are getting really pissed, and go to turn on the headlights and nothing!!! So now you go to turn on the overhead light to grab the cellphone and no lights!! To make everything better the wipers also decide they aren't going to work except on high, but no delay wipe. Enjoy your truck if you are going to buy one of these lovely pieces of s***s!!!

I will try and post if I get this fixed, the wierdest of things went out while it was raining horribly. Out of nowhere, the interior lights went out, the headlights, the TIMING on the wipers, and the power locks including the remote entry all stopped working. We went into the mall they were working, came back out and DARNIT !! anyways it was raining and night, and scary, but at least the brake lights worked, and the hazard lights worked and we left them on the whole time. Im sure I will pay out my ars.
