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.

lamp out light came on, checked all bulbs and no bulbs blown, replaced all bulbs anyway, checked and found that I had voltage to the sockets, and no parts house can get the part I need and they say its a dealer item, I will pay a ticket for no taillights before I give dodge/Chrysler another penny of my hard earned money.

biggest piece of sh*t I have ever owned. too many problems with this junk.

I have a 2003 Dodge Ram and I've been dealing with taillight issues for some months now. I'm paying for a vehicle that can only be driven in the day time. The dealership i purchased this truck from sent it off to be fix and the lights only worked for a week. After seeing there mechanic couldn't fix the problem they left the job up to me. I had the fuses and bulbs checked. I was told I (MIGHT) need to replace the fuse box which cost $650.00 plus dollars. After researching it seems like this problem is going on with a lot of 2003 Dodge Ram. There should be a recall on this issue. Makes no sense to have to pay out of pocket for a problem a lot of customers are complaining about. Never again will i purchase a Dodge vehicle. The Dodge manufacturers really need to do something about this...SAD SAD SAD!!!
