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 instrument panel would go off randomly and then pop back on, half the time I don't know what gas I have in the tank, how fast I'm going... nothing for days at a time, and at night driving was very dark and frustrating

problem #2

Grand Caravan Sport 3.3L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 200,000 miles

problem doe's not happen all the time. I can be driving down the road and all of a sudden I have no speedometer, tachometer, gas gauge, automatic locks, or heat gauge. Will not work for over a week and all of a sudden every thing clicks back on, I generally can tell because the door locks operate and fullpanel is working. May not go off for an extended period of time and suddenly it clicks off and may come back same day or remain off indefinately. Have taken to dealer and they can find no problem, they said best solution is to replace entire modul and estimate cost at $300.00 to $700.00 but can not guarantee this will solve the problem. This car only had 3 miles on it when I took it off dealer lot, am completely happy with performance except for this problem. Can some-one please help with this problem.
