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 #1

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

When headlights are on--usually at night--dash lights will dim and intensify intermittently while driving. Dome light has come on occasionally. I appreciated the service department's efforts to educate me on my vehicle the last time I brought it in for this problem, but I am fully aware of how the dome light switch works. 2. turn signal does not function safely. Intermittently, while driving, right turn signal does not work when engaged. After trying a multitude of times to engage, signal comes on, but does not stay on constantly. Signal will blink, stop and start randomly. Sometimes, the opposite signal will blink. 3. when headlights and fog lights were on, fog lights and/or headlights have cut out. This was not a result of switching to high beam.
