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.

The vehicle has unexpectedly shut off (I.e. gone dead) 30-40 times in the past 9 months. I previously took the vehicle to Dodge dealership and they did not find any problem with the ignition. There were no error codes in the vehicle computer. Dearlership suggested removing all extra keys/key rings...so did so. When it shuts off, the engine stops running, loss of power steering, loss of power brakes, and im guessing the air bags. Although the van predominantly shuts off at low speeds (10-15 mph) shortly after starting the car, it now occurs more frequently at highway speeds (60 mph) and after the car has been running for 2 hours. The shut down has got to be electronic as the engine does not sputter (the engine and all electronics go dead). Also we use only the key in the ignition (no key ring or extra key weight) and the key does not move out of the on position. This rolling death trap needs to be recalled and repaired immediately.

The headlights cut off while we were traveling 55 mph at night. They would work only if I held the bright light switch all the way pulled back (I tried almost everything known to man). I looked on the internet and found several complaints and quick fixes. One was to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes, did not work. The one that worked was to hit, shake or jiggle the black box (tipm) under the hood on drivers side. Bingo, it worked for about 3 weeks, did it again, 3 weeks later had to do it again. Now the lights will not work while holding the dim/bright switch. The lights came back on the next day. Took it to the dealer and paid $98 to them only to tell me it was the tipm module and needed replacing for a fee of $1100 and it might not fix it due to being a faulty tipm part. I paid extra for extended bumper to bumper coverage supposedly covering everything only to find out, it doesnt cover the tipm module. I cant afford the repair right now so hopefully it wont go out when driving on busy highway at night. Btw, this van is on the 3rd battery, probably due from the faulty tipm module (electrical system). The door locks work most of the time but not all the time. The fob recall was said to fix that problem. The interior lights come on randomly. Headlights go off while driving down the road at night.

I have been calling about getting the ignition repaired and fob's replaced for almost 4 months. I keep being told that I am on the list to have it fixed. I have not been told where I am on the list or given anytime frame. I have been told that the dealer ship is only getting one or two kits at a time. It has not gone into the off position yet, but the fob is broken due to the first recall for this problem.
