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.

Purchased this brand new several months ago. Drove 8,000 miles to and from work. Twice within the past week the van has completely just turned off on the highway. I have no idea why. I was just driving down the highway and the van just turned off. It's as if someone were to grab the keys and turn it off. I put it in neutral and restarted and kept driving. Fortunately, I was quick enough and my children and I were safe.

When the outside temperature is 85-90 degrees, our van has a computer glitch. It has occurred both when first starting the engine or going down the road. It has happened several times beginning July 2016. The wipers come on and cannot be turned off. There are no gages on the dash and the display reads "no bus." The turn signals and brake lights do not work. There is no radio, A/C or heater, and some of the windows won't work. We are not able to tell how fast we are going with no gages. This problem did happen one time as we were going 75 mph down the interstate. It was truly an unsafe situation with no turn signals and brake lights and no way to know our actual speed. This lasted for about 40 miles until the outside temperature dropped. We have had the vehicle to the dealer 6 times for a total of over 40 days in the last three months. They were able to duplicate the error one time for about 20 seconds but the problem resolved before the tech could get the scanner hooked up. The tipm and another module have been replaced but the problem continues to occur. Chrysler customer care has closed our claim, saying that because they cannot duplicate the problem now that the weather is cooler, they cannot do any more. Our concern is that the problem will arise again when the weather warms up next summer.

The contact owns a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact stated that the key would not turn over to start the vehicle. In addition, the instrument cluster shorted out and all the gauges and warning indicators randomly flickered. Lastly, the vehicle randomly stalled several times. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the transaxle oil pump needed to be replaced and that they would further diagnose the vehicle. The manufacturer was notified of the failures. The VIN and failure mileage were not available.
