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.

Wife was driving car, was approaching a left turn off the highway into a side street and the engine turned off. She tried starting the car again with the car in park, with the key fob, and it did start again. Prior to this, when starting the car in the garage, several times it would start and turn off immediately. I thought it hadn't gotten enough gas to keep going so I just started it again. It might have been the ignition switch snapping out of the start position at that time as well.

My van occasionally will not start. I replaced the battery and soon after began having problems with the van failing to start. Then I noticed that the passenger airbag dashboard cover was open. Also, the passenger rear sliding door does not latch properly. I have tried using both the remote key lock and manually pressing the button to close the door. It takes several attempts to get it to close and lock.

I was pulling out of a side street onto a main road when the engine shut off. This was the second time within the past month that this happened. About a week after I had the second ignition failure I received a recall notice (L25) from Chrysler telling me that they had a problem with their frequency operated button ignition key (fobik) that causes the engine to shut down while driving. When I called the Chrysler group recall assistance center (1-800-853-1403) they told me that the parts to fix the problem were not available and, even though the vehicle had shut down twice, they didn't care and wouldn't provide a loaner/rental vehicle until the repair was made. This is a similar situation that GM dealt with recently and did provide temporary replacement vehicles.
