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.

2001 Dodge Ram 2500 Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 052009

Ram 2500

  • 63,000 miles


The ABS sensor wire was damaged by contact with the right wheel. This caused the ABS system to believe that the wheel was not turning and engaged the ABS system making it impossible to engage the brakes. Speed was approximately 10 mph. This resulted in having to quickly engage the 2001 Ram 2500 into park. The truck crashed into the my garage door. If this happened in a traffic situation the results could have been very bad. If one of my children had been in the driveway this problem would have probably received more attention. This wire should not ever be able to come in contact with the wheel and the route is poorly planned.
