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.

Grand Caravan

  • 30,000 miles
The ignition fobik gets stuck in the socket forcing the car to stay in acc and exhausting the battery. The car can be restarted when this happens and after repeated attempts usually releases the fobik. This often involves forcibly shoving the transmission lever from D to P. I believe this is related to the L25 and R03 recalls as sometimes you can hear an electronic noise when the fobik is locked or released. My primary complaint is that I've called the dealer 4 times or so over the last year since L25 came out asking to fix the problem by fulfilling the recall. Each time the dealer, rainier Dodge, says they will order parts and get back to me, but never does. I will be calling again this week after problems over the weekend. I'm very dissatisfied with Chrysler's response to this potentially serious problem.

We were driving down the I5 in California when the all the warning lights on the instrument cluster lit up or started flashing. The indicators, wipers and windshield wiper fluid started and would not shut off. I could not turn any of these items off. This lasted for about 1-2 minutes before the van all of a sudden went back to its normal operation. It has happened one other time since then.
