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.

2003 Dodge Durango: After about 15 minutes of driving we hear clicking noises and see lights (exterior and interior) flickering. Starts with just a few clicks and flickers and then became worse the longer we drive. Took it to a shop, they couldn't find a problem. Happened again a week later (vehicle not driven much at night) and returned to shop. Still couldn't find a problem so they researched and found multiple similar complaints regarding the central timing module. Checked with the dealership, ours not covered under the recall. Dealership said $550 to fix. This is not the first (or second, third, fourth, or fifth) problem we've have with this vehicle.

I have 2003 Dodge Durango, the central timer module was replaced in January 2010. The headlamps, interior lights started to flicker on & off. The left headlamp went to low beam. Driving at the night the lights would go low beam or completely turn off for about 5-10 seconds. I got off the highway and stayed on the access road until I reached home.

The contact owns a 2003 Dodge Durango. The contact was driving at night approximately 35 mph on normal road conditions when suddenly, the headlights flickered and failed to operate. The driver was able to reach his destination without incident. The failure occurred intermittently. In addition, the interior light remained illuminated which required the removal of the fuse. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic for inspection. The failure was contributed to the central timer module (ctm). Recall NHTSA campaign id number 02V3220000, exterior lighting headlights switch is related to the failure; however, the VIN was excluded from the recall. The vehicle is in the process of being repaired for the malfunction. The failure mileage was 68,000.

First the key fobs stopped unlocking the doors then the lights stopped working was told that the central timer module was defective and that the dealer would replace. Chrysler denies there is a problem with this module.
