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.

2001 Grand Caravan sport, consumer says headlights flickered unpredictably. Engine ran rough, and battery light came on. This happened at night at least once a month. Took vehicle to dealer, who checked the van but could not duplicate the problem, no fault codes found in computer, updated PCM. Vehicle was serviced regularly. Problem began not more than a month after purchasing van. The problem still persists periodically.

Dodge gc 2001 stalled while in motion with no warning during a very heavily traveled area in a school zone with many potential hazards. Luckily I was only going about 10 mphs and coming to a stop. I interrupted flow of traffic at time of failure and when the tow truck came. A police officer helped direct traffic. Mechanic said leak detection pump went out which caused the PCM (power train control module) to short out. This PCM controls many electrical elements. The engine light is on, the speedometer and passenger window doesnt work and I am told that several systems could fail but it is driveable. I have searched many dealerships in many states with all the same answer. The part I need, the PCM, is on national back order. There are none available in the us. This is the only vehicle I have to Transport my children. I contacted DC Corp and they will not tell me if it is safe to drive w/ a faulty PCM. It has been 3 weeks and my van is not fixed. I am at their mercy and they have denied responsibility as well as a rental request until my van can be fixed properly. "unfortunately, your request for a rental vehicle has been declined." They claim "we are unable to be of assistance in expediting parts that are not on order" the part has been ordered. Again I questioned the safety of driving the vehicle with a faulty PCM with no answer as of yet. Their are over 250 PCM's on back order.

The regulator on the front power driver side and passenger side windows is faulty. Our van was built in Canada and it appears to be a common trait of those vehicles. This is a serious defect that could result in injuries, someone should be held responsible for this defect and implement a recall to repair the problem- or discontinue manufacturing vehicles that Dodge will not stand behind.

An electrical system malfunction under the hood caused the vehicle to catch on fire, the fire inspector came to this conclusion based on a core that the fire burned.
