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.

Turn signal malfuctioned attributed to the front control module according to Chrysler star representative. The dealer was not able to reproduce the failure and was returning my vehicle to me.this is a "known" problem that the dealer was not prepared or able to diagnose. According to rick at chryser star support desk the front control module P/N 56051036ad has a known problem. I was only able to find tthis out after calling Chrysler customer service and insisting that the dealer call their star support desk and open an incident. The rep at the support desk immediately told jesse the service tech that the front control module had a known problem. The intermittent failure created a safety hazard on the highway by not funtioning at all or malfunctioning by indicating a right hand turn signal when the lever was in the left hand turn position.
