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.

Engine stalls while driving. Dealer installed updated PCM calibration. Stalling continues to occur during the same conditions, especially while turning, but less frequently.

problem #2

Mar 212005

Ram 1500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,432 miles
After random amounts of normal driving speedometer starts bouncing at idle from 0-5 mph then ABS and brake warning lights illuminate after ariving at dealer I was told it was caused by a leaking ABS connector that was "improperly desigened" and all they could do was clean it out and fill it with electromagnetic grease. I was also told (by more than one dealer)that I was not the only one with this problem and daimler Chrysler has been no help other than letting me lodge a complaint and sending me a letter of apology both times happened under 9,000 miles and thankfully have not happend again (I'm at about 15,000 miles)
