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 #1

Ram 1500 6-cyl

1998-2001 B-van (Dodge full size). The ABS control module is protected with a 40 amp fuse. A 10 ga. Wire comes out of the control module, then this 10 ga. Wire "Y's" out to two 14 ga. Wires. It appears as though the ABS pump or the relay sticks on these vans. Then one of the 14 ga. Wires overheats and catches the wiring harness on fire. The 40 amp fuse does not blow. The fire then continues until the van is fully engulfed in flames. This van was bought back from us by Chrysler Corp. In 2002. The official fire investigation reports conducted by Chrysler were never disclosed to us at verizon.
