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.

Defroster stop blowing on windshield, however, it would blow out other vents, tech found that the mode 2 actuator had an internal open circuit, dealer removed and replaced the mode 2 actuator. I submitted documentation for reimbursement since this is a known problem. [xxx]. my claim was denied, I was told my vehicle did not have a recall. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

We have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with approximately 32000 miles the HVAC actuator gears on our vehicle are broken. I have found that there was a recall for this very thing for 2010 Dodge Ram trucks. However when I called Chrysler I was told my VIN # was not included in this recall. Because it was manufactured at a different plant. The cost of this repair is approximately $1000 I have a letter that was sent to the affected owners it was marked notification code K17 it is titled: Reprogram HVAC control head and inspect/replace actuators.

It is -15 degrees Fahrenheit today in Wisconsin at noon. Something in the HVAC system quit working. The heat works great, but when I change the selector from floor/vent/defrost nothing happens. The heat only blows on the floor. I hear a constant (flapping) noise from under the dash board. I have tried several times starting and turning off the truck, adjusting the selector knob to apply the air to all positions and it still only blows on my feet. Keeps on flapping under the dash board. How is it (safe) to drive without having operational windshield defrost. I looked online at several forums and have seen many others with the same problem. Hopefully they will report the problem as I am doing now. Its going to be cold tonight again since it will be winter around here for another 2-3 months, so I hope I am safe till it get fixed. I truly hope this report gets fixed as this in my opinion is a serious safety issue. Its like driving blind or myself and others with this problem may as well be texting and driving if we cant see out the windshield. Sorry if this comes off with an attitude. Not intended that way.
