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 was pulling up to an intersection, about to make a left turn when the vehicle shut off and I wasn't able to steer the vehicle. I put it in park, turned the vehicle off and then restarted it and it was fine. It never did that again, then a little over a month later while I was driving it out of state all the warning lights kept coming on and off. When I took it to the dealership they replaced the ignitions switch which was a recalled part that we were waiting to come in. They said they didn't see any of the issues I was experiencing when they test drove the van. As I was leaving the dealership all the warning lights started flashing and the windshield wipers wouldn't work. I returned the van to the dealership and now they stated the problem is the tipm.

The wireless ignition node module will not turn off completely and gets stuck in the accessory mode. I must turn the vehicle back on, put it in gear, and then back to park several times before the key will finally go to the off stage and I can pull the key out. This happens very often. I received a recall notice for the win module (R03/NHTSA 14V-373) and upon calling the only Dodge dealership in my area, I have been put on a wait list because the dealership is only receiving two to three repair kits at a time and I may be waiting several months for a repair. The recall states, "this could cause unintended engine shut off and increase the risk of a crash." This should be handled immediately, but it is not.

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan. While driving approximately 45 mph, the traction control sensor light suddenly illuminated and the vehicle would not respond when the accelerator pedal was depressed.

My wife started our van and it didn't start. She got it started and went a few miles down the road. After stopping at a stop sign she took off and was going approximately 35 mph when the vehicle abruptly stalled. She lost power steering and was able to get it stopped before going into the ditch. Had she been traveling faster she probably would have wrecked. She had my two year old with her and is currently 13 weeks pregnant.....updated 11/02/15 updated 1/4/2016

In the most serious of many no-start incidents, our van failed to start in 107 degree temperatures with our three small children in the car. We were stranded at a remote rest area, with nowhere to take refuge from the dangerous heat. After 18 attempts the engine finally started and we completed our trip to reno Nevada, driving in remote areas amid deadly heat fearing our van would fail to restart if stopped. In the prior week while in fl, the van had a new battery installed at our gator Chrysler, in a repair advised to solve no start incidents we had in fl. The van also underwent an inspection, with no problems reported to us. We scheduled a panicked dealer service visit while still in route, at a reno Dodge on July 1st 2013. The dealership technicians retained the van to diagnose the no-start for 2 full days. They noted no malfunction and could not reproduce the problem. The van has since developed intermittent failures of several electronic systems, including stalling when placed in reverse, failing to shift into 2nd gear after sitting overnight, no power to the instrument cluster or no power to the console controls. The van at the time of purchase in December of 2011 had previously been "repaired" in the recall for its win module. Additionally a PCM reflash 68050411af had been performed. Our van continues to have no-start incidents and transmission fails to shift into 2nd gear, no fixes. Both reno area Chrysler dealerships have looked at our van and noted no failures. Despite being "repaired" under recall the ignition module continues to malfunction. With a fob inserted the module shows excess sloppiness in the clockwise direction. The key fob has been stuck in the ignition on several occasions, and the engine has continued running after removal of the key. These malfunctions have potential to become dangerous in certain situations.
