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.

Received a recall notice last year in August and scheduled with dealer who said they did not have the part and that I could not get it fixed. They told me another letter will arrive to let me know that the part is available. I still have not received that letter. Please tell me what I should do in this matter.

On multiple occasions while driving or in park with or without key in the ignition. The wipers start going the fluid will spray the horn will honk the doors will lock..(and has on 1 occasion locked my children in the van and I could not get them out until it stopped about 2 minutes later) I've had the heat and ac stop working I've had transmission issues, lights going off while driving in the dark! multiple problems that all lead back to this timp module that Dodge, Chrysler Jeep will not recall nor fix..and the dealership is no help either because they'll run multiple diagnostic checks and say there is nothing wrong even if you bring it in while it's having an episode and they clearly see there is a problem if the diagnostic comes back with nothing them they send you on your way because they can't help they say.
