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.

problem #13

Ram 1500

  • 40,000 miles

The problem started in 2009. Went to drive the truck and could not get the truck to drive over 20 mph. Was able to get it to a dealer close by and had to have the throttle body positioning sensor replaced. Since that date I have had to have this same sensor changed 8 more times. Each time the private mechanic talks to Chrysler and they recognize there is a faulty problem with this part and will not recall the item. When this sensor goes out it will not let you drive more than about 20mph. Also had to replace the accelerated pedal positioning sensor 4 times. Blinker problems noted by many other consumers I have also had. Where you turn on the left blinker and the right blinker comes on. As well as the A/C problem many consumers have mentioned the door breaks and then all you have is outside air coming in. My mechanic has tried to get replacement parts from Chrysler to repair the problem and Chrysler does not sell this part (please explain to me how they can make the vehicle and not sell the part to repair it when it breaks knowing it breaks often). Tie rods have also been a problem with my truck. No matter how tight they are they continue to come loose even after being replaced and then the truck will shake. My main concern at this point is it intermittently will die while driving down the highway. It will start right back up but will die again and then it wont duplicate the problem for 2 or 3 days and then will do it again. Have not been able to diagnose this problem yet. If anyone knows any suggestions to look at please advise.

This is a complaint about a malfunctioning blinker in my 2006 Dodge 1500 Ram truck. I have been reading that there are numerous complaints about this happening. The blinker starts going left when you have it to turn right and vice versa. It's crazy and so dangerous! I took my truck in to see about getting it fixed and of course the warranty went out yesterday! I hope for others sake that this becomes a recall item! thank you
