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.

problem #2

Feb 102010

Ram 1500 318 Magnum

  • Automatic transmission
  • 113,000 miles


Shortly after beginning to drive the truck all the warning lights on the dashboard come on (ABS, Check Engine, AirBag, etc.) and all gauges stop working (Speedometer, Gas gauge, Temp., etc.). This is a giant pain in the A(*! Do you know the fix for this? Have been told it MAY be an ignition wiring harness problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Ram 1500 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,035 miles

I had just bought the truck and everything was good. After a few weeks of driving my check gauges light started coming on. But it only does it when i am slowing down or at a stop. My oil pressure drops to nothing but when i step on the gas the light goes off and pressure jumps up to normal...i don't know what the heck is wrong with it.
