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.

Car just stops running and engine shuts off as you are driving down the road. Lights stay on but all power is lost. Gas tank is full but gas gauge reads empty. You pull over and it starts right up and runs just fine.

Radio was replaced. Intermittent failure of electrical system while driving started after replacement. The only pattern to events is they start with application of the brakes. All of the gauges gyrate post to post, the radio shuts off and restarts and the dash lights and headlights flicker. The car eventually dies and will not restart until several minutes have past. After restarting, the dash lights continue to flicker for a period of time. I have taken the van to the radio installer, two independent mechanics and a Dodge dealer. No one can duplicate or fix the problem. The last time this happened my wife was on the freeway when an incident started. It created a dangerous situation as she tried to exit the freeway in rush hour traffic. She was able to exit, but the van died on the offramp and blocked traffic. After several attempts the van started and she was able to complete exiting the freeway.
