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

Mar 292008

Ram 1500 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 150 miles


In cold dry weather the ignition system shorts causing the horn lights and chimes to activate. The dealer has witnessed this three times, but said that Chrysler has no history of this happening and has no fix for the problem. The truck has been back to the dealer numerous times, several inhouse fixes were tried, but the problem still exists. A representative from Chrysler customer assistance told me that the problem is an act of nature and Chrysler in not responsible, but he refused to give me the statement in writing. The problem started about 3 weeks after I got the truck in January 2006.
