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.

After (7) months we are still waiting for the resolution of recall #P25/NHTSA 14V-234. After contacting our dealer several times, they still do not have the part to correct the problem from Chrysler. This is an unreasonable amount of time to wait for a large corporation to fix a rather insignificant problem.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 78,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

While driving my 2012 3.6L Dodge Grand Caravan with a 160 amp alternator the battery light came on, within 5 miles the transmission control system stopped working. Further all of the system lights on the dash came on and the radio and HVAC system stopped functioning. The cause of these system conditions was the denso TN421000-0770 alternator failing. I believe that this is the same alternator that is used on vehicles that are included in NHTSA recall no. : 14V-634. Chrysler claims that the alternator fails only on cars that are equipped with ehps. I believe that my alternator failed in a similar fashion to this recall. The Dodge and Chrysler minivans that are equipped with a 3.6L engine and the denso 160 amp alternator should be recalled. In the end my car stalled in the middle of the road which could have resulted in a terrible accident had I been on the highway.
