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.

The key fell out of the ignition switch while driving. I brushed up against the key and it flew out onto the passenger side floor board. The vehicle remained running without a key in the ignition.

Ram 1500

  • miles
2003 Dodge Ram, 1500, 5,7 ltr. Hemi, has stalled and would not start or run. Towed in three times. Total times in shop - six or seven times. Problem still occurs, but stalling is not as severe since last service. Truck is used for farm and pulling camper. Cannot use for long trips and camping due to fear of stalling and being stuck in the middle of nowhere. Dealer has replaced many parts and believes problem is solved, but stalling continues, although not as severe. I'm reluctant to pursue further action as dealer is personal friend and I believe they have tried as best as they can. This vehicle is a lemon.
