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.

2009 Dodge Ram 1500. While driving through winter conditions it appears that snow and ice build up around the rear brake calipers. Once that ice began to melt a large section of ice fell off. The ice had encapsulated the wheel speed sensor wire and the falling of the ice ripped the sensor wires from the connector. The result was instant loss of traction control, anti lock brake system, and cruise control. This allowed a condition that caused loss of control on ice.
