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.

I have a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan that has a problem with the headlights flickering and go off while the minivan is moving. I noticed you are investigating this same matter with Chrysler and that many others are having the same problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

While driving lights go out on my 2001 Dodge minivan, I have been on the telephone with local dealer and diambler Chrysler with no answers other than that to the dealer for testing. This could be costly and we are planning a trip with night driving involved and wanted information as to what area is being investigated to tell my local dealer as in a matter of seconds with light failure an accident could occur. Any help will be appreciated as I got nothing from the mfg.

When driving the vehicle with the headlights on, they will, for no apparent reason, shut off. Happens regardless of speed I am driving or road conditions. These outtages are intermittant and there is no pattern to when they will occur. Losing headlights at night on dark country roads in my area is a serious safety hazard. Took vehicle to dealer who said there was a "fatal error" showing on a computer module. Spent $600 to replace computer module and the problem still recurred. Vehicle is now at dealer waiting for a backordered headlight switch. Dealer has no idea when the switch will come in. They ordered the same switch for another vehicle 2 months ago and it still has not come in.

The headlights and dashboard lights go off by themselves. Vehicle was taken to the dealer on numerous occasions and no defects found.

While driving at any speed air bag light stayed on. Dealer examined the vehicle, and found that the clockspring was defective. Clockspring was replaced four times. Also, dashboard lights and headlights came and off whenever they wanted to.

Headlights will go off and flicker. Sometimes stay out for about 2 seconds, and then will eventually come back on. Nothing I do will make them come back on. I have to wait for them to come back on on their own Accord. It happens at varying speeds - any where from 15 mph to 65 mph. It doesn't matter if the road is smooth or not, or what the weather conditions are. I've reported it to diamler/Chrysler with no results. They simply stated there have been no outstanding recalls on my vehicle. Headlights going out on their own in the middle of the night while driving is an extreme safety hazard, not to mention I could get a ticket for driving without my headlights. I would like this situation looked into. Thank you.
