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

Apr 282003

Ram 1500 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 20,000 miles


When raining or high moisture the vehicle dies or will not start. Driving down the interstate several times it started to rain and the truck engine stopped running. Leaving me with no power steering and trying to pull off the highway in traffic. If raining or damp. When try to start, there is no such luck. We have to leave it sit in the drive unusable. When you turn the headlamps from high to low beam the lights go out. The engine light stays on most of the time.
