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 right lamps are not receiving the proper current, only receiving current while utilizing the park lamp. No brake, hazard or turn lights. ! using the test light I tested every fuse within the power distribution center which indicated in no failures or blown fuses. Yet when utilizing the right blinker the relay has a muffled click that was barely audible unlike the left blinker where the relay sounded nice and strong with or without the trailer tow harnesses being utilized. Upon research I found that this was a very common problem with various years of Dodge lam"S. II believe that this problem that varies in low or high mileage Dodge truck"S needs to be addressed by the manufacturer due to the vast amount of complaints and queries for the same exact problems. I have been told by the dealer that the problem may be the integrated power module), $ $300 just so happens to control everything including most importantly the air bag system.
