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
  • 4,000 miles


I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4X4 St. The problem is static electricity in the ignition switch which Chrysler engineer have acknowledged that their is a problem and the problem is when the weather is dry and I go to start my vehicle the surge of the static electricity in the air sets of my horn, my chimes, my interior lights, my cargo lights and my open door lights. The horn blare for up to 3 to 4 minutes and the rest takes an hour or more to reset themselves or I have to disconnect the battery to get them to stop. The dealer ship gave me a can of static guard to spray on my seats to keep this from happening. At night when this happens, I have to cut off my instrument panel lights in order to drive because of the interior lights staying on. I have tried the lemon law etc. Dave weinberger a spokesman with Chrysler has not kept me abreast of what is going on. I want my truck fixed or replace with another. My family has allergies and the spraying of this static guard is not helping their conditions either! again Chrysler is the ones who told me that they knew of the problem and are dragging their feet to fix it.
