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

Oct 092015

Ram 1500 ST 4.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 73,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

When the truck was sitting idle around 4 AM, the horn just started to blow for no reason. I removed the fuse to stop the horn. Then a few days later, while driving the truck, the horn just started to blow on its own. I had to pull off the road and again removed the horn fuse. Then again on another day at 5 AM, the horn started to blow on its own. I again had to remove the horn fuse. After about 2 days of not using the vehicle, the battery was so drained that I could not start the vehicle unless I got a jump start. So, now I remove the fuse for the horn and I have to disconnect the battery, when I park the truck so that the battery does not get drained and the horn does not constantly blow.

When I reconnect the battery and put the fuse back for the horn, the horn starts to blow constantly--there is no way to stop the horn blowing, only by removing the horn fuse will the horn stop blowing. Therefore, n ow when I drive the truck, I have no working horn. This is dangerous.

RECIEVED YOUR NOTICE ON AIRBAGS. BEING AS HORN WAS IN THERE I DECIDED TO TAKE IT TO DEALER : IN WHEN OPENED, @ APPROX 12:10 GAVE ME 3RD DIAGNOSIS. 1ST IT WAS FUSE/RELAY BOARD FOR CLOSE TO $500.THAT WASN'T IT. NOW IT WAS A MODULE. IT WOULD COST ME $100. MORE. THAT WAS NOT IT. BROUGHT TRUCK TO ME THINKING IT WAS FIXED, HORN STARTED BLOWING FOR AROUND A MINUTE. THEN SAID I NEED A HORN BUTTON.TOLD ME OUT OF STOCK AND DIDN'T HAVE DRIVERS AIR BAG EITHER. FINALLY FIXED WEEK AND A HALF LATER. WANTED TO CHARGE ME FOR ALL INEPT DIAGNOSIS.ASKED FOR OVER $400. I TOOK EXCEPTION TO THEIR EXPLANATION. TAKEN TO SEE SERVICE MANAGER AND STARTED TO EXPLAIN MY SIDE OF THE STORY. NOT TOO INTERESTED. TOLD ME TAKE MY TRUCK AND LEAVE AND HE DIDN'T WANT TO SEE MY FACE AGAIN!

WHILE I WAS WAITING ON "SERVICE" I WENT TO SHOWROOM TO LOOK AT NEW TRUCKS. SPENT OVER 10 MINUTES LOOKING ONE OVER. NOT A SOUL APPROACHED.

MY TRUCK HAS BEEN A GOOD TRUCK, MORE THAN SATIFIED.

I WANT NO MONEY. JUST TO ADVISE. THANK YOU
