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.

We have been experiencing intermittent issues with our van not starting or stalling for no reason. We are also having issues with our key fob working to lock and unlock doors intermittently. This does not happen every day and cannot be predicted but appears to be related to the ignition switch. We have taken it for service and replaced batteries in key fobs. However, the issues have not been replicated during service. Our van was not included in the ignition recall. We would like to request reconsideration.

Grand Caravan

  • 30,000 miles
October 2014. The tipm malfunctioned causing an electrical fire that melted the fuse box and all of the wire harnesses. The entire electrical system had to be replaced and cost $6,000 out of pocket. The horn, radio, loss of lights, and wiper fluid activated causing me to be unable to see at 50mph. Then I lost all power as smoke came into the vehicle. I put the van in neutral and turned off the ignition key and coasted to a safe area. I was unable to get into my wheelchair from the drivers seat and was forced to exit the drivers side door. I have a wheelchair accessible van with a folding ramp out of passenger sliding door. My drivers seat is a 6 way power seat the slides back and turns. I transfer from my wheelchair to the drivers seat. Luckily I had someone with me who could get my wheelchair and bring it to the drivers side door so I could get out of the van. We were even luckier that the van didn't burst into flames. Woodbury Dodge of NJ refused to work on my van made false statements, and had me take it elsewhere. The same issue happened again on 1/19/16 - see that post
