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.

This is the same type of problem I had with my 2004 and now I cannot get heat to blow on the floor of my 2006 Dodge pickup and the dealer wants $1000 bucks to fix. Yes, I am finish with Dodge, never again will I buy a Dodge.

Ram 1500

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles

Purchased a 2006 1500 4WD Dodge extended cab pickup truck in mid September of 2011. Didn't check the heater because the outside temp was probably around 80 degrees. A few weeks later when it was colder I turned the heat on and discovered it would not blow heat out at the floor. It blew it out at the windshield. Went in and hollered at the dealership and they fixed it. This was probably in December of 2011. On January 9, 2012 it started doing the same thing so I took it back. Supposedly it is now fixed, but I have not picked it up yet. They are not supposed to charge me, but I guess I will find out. Who would expect a $17,000 vehicle to have heater problems? Not to mention another problem was the dashboard did not light up at night. They fixed that, but I had to pay $100.00 towards that and that now works except the know for the headlights does not light up at night and I am fairly certain it is supposed to. Other than all that it seems to be a decent truck, but I am probably done with that dealership as my feeling these things should all be checked out and repaired before they ever put them on the sales lot!

Ram 1500 SLT 5.7L

  • Automatic transmission

I was just wondering if anyone had a fix for this yet, I usually work on my own vehicles but I don't know where to start on this yet. Is it electrical? The rest of my system works fine so I was thinking it might just be the switch but I don't know how to check it. So my only option is to buy a new one and hope that is the problem unless anyone else knows what is wrong.

Ram 1500 Quad 3.7

  • Automatic transmission

After it stopped working I took it to a local dealership (Edd Kirby) buyer beware. I spent $150.00 out of pocket and 4 trips to get it fixed and this morning it stopped again. When I switch it to floor heat it blows out of the defroster,now I'm just pissed.
