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.

2011 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

The blower motor resistor connector on the 2001 Dodge Dakota's are overheating and melting the connectors, this is causing a potential fire hazard. If you do a search online you will see hundreds of people talking about this problem. All the auto parts stores have these in stock because it is a known problem. I have had to replace my blower motor resistor 4 times in the last 3 years and wiring 2 times because of this problem. Dodge even seems to know about this problem with the blower motor maybe drawing to many amps, but when you contact them they just say the vehicle is out of warranty.
