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.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Durango. While driving 25 mph and coming to a stop, the accelerator pedal stuck to the floorboard for a couple of seconds. The vehicle kept accelerating at 60 mph when releasing the accelerator pedal. The throttle remained wide open when released. The contact had to turn the engine off to be able to stop the vehicle. The contact coasted over to the side of the road and the throttle started to release. The failure recurred twice. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. In addition, the headlights failed when the switch was in the on position and the windshield wipers activated when the switch was in the off position. The failure recurred numerous times only when the temperature was forty degrees or less. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 37,000.

I have a 2006 Dodge Durango, bought it used about 4 years ago. About a year and half ago, approximately March of 2013, the vehicle started to stall while driving. It happened at all speeds and after it happening multiple times we figured out that it happened when it was wet/raining out. This is extremely scary and dangerous when going 70mph on the highway...to have your vehicle jerk numerous times and then completely shutoff (aka no power at all!). we have spent a few thousand dollars since spring of 2013 trying to fix the issue. We worked closely with our dealer to figure out the exact problem...figured out it was electrical (possibly when the windshield wiper are used...)but that was about as far as we got. Some of the things they found and/or fixed or replaced are as follows: Wiring that was frayed, re-ground numerous wires, replaced a handful of sensors, resealed connections between electrical components and main module (as well as resealed the boxes themselves since water was found in them), replaced the electrical module ($2K), and replaced entire electrical box(which included having to re-wire)...found a used one since brand new would have been $1200!. I have recently seen that there was a petition to the government to investigate (and hopefully recall) vehicles that have situations similar to what I have described above but they reference vehicles manufactured 2007 and forward but our 2006 is having the same issues!! since it has been to the dealer last (less than a month ago) we have not had the problem but there was a stretch over the winter where it didn't happen at all either so I am not convinced it is fixed...it seems the dealer mechanic is about out of ideas and so are we...

While driving at night I tried to use my brights, but the windshield wipers would keep coming on instead. When the brights did come on then they wouldn't turn off. There are also times when I use the left turn signal that the right signal would come on and the two signals would flicker back and forth.

Controller that turns between defrost, floor, and front was replaced under warranty a few years ago. It was raining, and a turned the knob to defrost....and nothing happened! the switch that opens and closes the compartments from face to defrost had broken. The blower still works, but all comes out on the face...no defrost or floor. There are 1000's of these complaints online. The dealership tells me, 2,000 to replace the plastic piece a manufacturer used recycled plastic which is a common problem to break. Now in rain, I roll down the windows, use mc donalds napkins to continue to wipe off the windshield so I can see to drive, while in route to my job in a suite. I can deal with the 2=3 gallons of gas on the ground while pumping gas into the faulty tank by stopping at 50, but this is ridicious!! I rear-ending car in front of me. Slight injuries, and a huge insurance bill while not being able to see while paraell parking to see through the windshield. There is no question this is a safety hazard. Unfortunately insurance companies do not see a faulty poorly compiled defrosting component switch as probable cause to be covered under the collision policy.

Wipers activate on there own during cold temperatures. Occasionally the truck will die after wipers unexpectedly go off.
