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.

Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

2005 Ram 1500 decelerated while in cruise control on an upgrade. After several seconds the vehicle kicked down and raced the hemi engine. This was with enough power to push me into my seat. It exceeded the set speed by 7 mph and then returned to normal cruise behavior. Upon exiting the highway I stopped for a light at the end of the exit ramp. While waiting for the light to change the engine attempted at stall and then raced the engine up to 2500 rpms, then back to stall. This occurred three times before returning to normal idle. Wilson Dodge in torrington ct is finding no codes in the computer to explain the erratic behavior of the vehicle.
