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.

Air bag sensor light keeps coming on. Took to dealership and service states kids feet must be kicking it lose or shoving bottle under seat. 1st off vehicle is suppose to be to Transport especially kids! kids have not been in vehicle for month and light is now coming on. Went off for a couple of weeks again and now comes on and shuts off when hitting slightest bump in road. Questioning if faulty or bad connector but service states they will charge me to fix it despite warranty. Please help me!

The contact owns a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan. On several occasions, the air bag warning indicator illuminated. The contact was also concerned about the totally integrated power module. The contact stated that the driver and passenger side windows would roll up or roll down independently. The vehicle was taken to be diagnosed, but the dealer was unable to duplicate the failures. The contact stated that the failures were intermittent. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 22,000.

I was driving at night and all of a sudden the car died while in motion; the engine stop working, the lights went very dim and it was difficult to drive it at that moment, I almost got hit from the car behind me and I was close to hit the car in front of me. I didn't get any warning lights for the engine or the battery. I tried to turn it on again and it cranked but didn't start. A little latter I tried again and the car started. While driving back home I notice that the lights were dim, but I didn't get any warning lights from the engine or the battery again. I also noticed that the stereo reset all the stations and the clock. It was very dangerous. I am very upset because that's the car my kids ride everyday.

I had an electrical fire in my 2014 Caravan, the fire started in the area of the tipm module and burned up a wiring harness in close proximity to the tipm module as well. The fire started while we were driving the vehicle. I recently found a defect investigation to do with 2008-2014 Chrysler town and country and Dodge Grand Caravan tipm modules the NHTSA action number was dpi4004 and also stated other various issues including the failure of the instrument panel. We also had the instrument panel shut down while driving a while back, but everything came back on and this incident hasn't happened again. I am concerned with the safety of the vehicle and wanted to make people aware of the issues I have had. It seems really fishy that there was a previous investigation into the tipm module, and that two of the incidents that I have experienced are called out in the report mentioned above.

Mil light came on. Had oil changed & checked. Mil did not turn off. TPMS light came on. Checked tires. TPMS light did not turn off. ESC light came on. Vehicle got stuck in park several times. Got vehicle out of park and drove home. Vehicle was parked for a few days. Tried to start. Dead battery. Charged battery and started vehicle. Vehicle would not turn off even with ignition key removed. Vehicle overheated to max temperature on gauge, began to steam and spilled a lot of coolant. Very afraid vehicle would catch fire. Called aaa and tow truck driver located and removed fuse to shut down running vehicle. Had vehicle towed to Chrysler Dodge dealership. After a week still have not heard from dealership service department or Chrysler. The vehicle being stuck with the engine running even with ignition key removed and subsequent rapid overheating and loss of coolant presented an extremely dangerous situation with the strong potential for a vehicle fire. The TPMS light malfunction leaves the driver unable to determine if there really is an underinflated tire and/or tires. The ESC light malfunction leaves the driver unable to use this function for improved the vehicle's traction in vatious situations.

The vehicle airbag lights stay on...the windshield wipers cut on by themselves and the window rolls down by itself. The car can be stationary or in motion.

My 2014 Grand Caravan has been having issues with not starting. I may have to try 4 times before it will start. This was bad enough, but it has also left me sitting in very busy traffic 3 times in the last two weeks. The first time happened as I was exiting off the interstate. The car just went dead with no warning. I was able to restart and keep going. The second and third incidents happened yesterday. The first time it went dead yesterday was as I was pulling out of my driveway. I was completely on the road and was in the process of trying to accelerate. My car began to shake, all lights came on the panel, and the car was dead. The second time this happened yesterday, I was slowing down to stop at a red light on a very busy 4 lane highway. The car went dead with no warning. We took this car to the dealership to have it checked. They said there was nothing they could do because there was no code. I refuse to drive this car, that we've had less than a year, because I fear for my life and even more for my child's life. This needs to be fixed immediately.

This complaint for the rear vent switch is just to express my frustration with the length of time it's taking to get the new switch. How long should it take when vans prior to 2010 had a similar switch that worked perfectly. This has been going on since 3/14, & shortly after I bought this used van I contacted dealers in AZ in 2/15 & the waiting list was too long. So I waited until we returned to mi, reported it in 4/15, & was just told they are just receiving parts for the March waiting list & so it will at least be another 2-4 months for me. I want this fixed before we return to AZ in Dec. Can't Chrysler be speeded up"?" thank you [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6)..
