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.

Dropped truck off for detailing. Truck was off. When employee tried to start truck battery was dead. After jumping battery, it started but once driven 50 feet to park, the truck key could be turned off, key removed, but truck still running. Could not get it to turn off. Electric windows closed themselves, air conditioning would not operate. Dash board lights came on. Manual brake was set and could be released, but light never went out. Truck was about 90 degrees in Hawaii heat, so couldn't drive it to Dodge dealer with no air and windows inoperable. Scary. Had it hauled to dealer on truck while it was running. Dealer said battery drained and tipm needs replacement, and then further investigation. Est. $3,000 already for repairs. In month leading up to this, vehicle had vibration. Dealers replaced fuel injector, rear end differential, brake pads and rotors and calipers, all which had passed an inspection just a couple months earlier. Cost estimate on these combined $3,000 also. Saw recall 05V461000 online for 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 transfer case. Could this be related? I had similar thing happen with my Dodge nitro which was on recall.
