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.

Driving to school in the morning, all lights inside and out started flickering. Turned them off, but the headlights stayed on highbeams the whole time while still flickering. Alarm also stopped working. On the drive back the highbeams stayed on again the whole time even when its on off switch. Inside lights won"T stay on. When I turn the car on the darn lights will not turn off. Doing my research it seems that its the ctm, and alot of people have had that experience. I have 3 children, what if my lights flicker off again and cause an accident?

Electronic controls of safety equipment do not funtion properly. Turn signals, lights, cruise. Gauges, windows, radio, airbag etc.. all have malfuntioned since the car was picked up from the dealer. It is obvious that a electrical problem exists in the vehicle but doddge/Chrysler is un willing to address the issue.this is an ongoing issue. I have numerous witnesses and have started video recording the problems.
