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.

The contact owns a 2001 Dodge Durango. The contact stated that the motor for the heater blew hot air and he smelled melting wires. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was confirmed that the resister, the wiring harness, and the blower motor had failed and needed to be replaced. The contact personally repaired the vehicle by replacing the resister, the wiring harness and the blower motor. The manufacturer was not contacted. The failure mileage was approximately 100,000. The current mileage was approximately 130,000. The VIN was unavailable.

The blower motor resistor, for the ac/heat on my 2001 Dodge Durango slt 4WD, has failed twice, since I have owned the vehicle. A service garage performed a test of the system and wanted to replace the blower, but the dealer claimed this was a common problem with this model and replaced the resistor, at a much lower cost. Upon review of Dodge Durango online forums, this appears to be an issue for many Dodge Durango owners. Appears to be either a defect in the system or design defect. Please investigate.
