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.

The headlights on my truck repeatedly go out. Initially this only happened when I switched from high to low beam. Waiting a couple seconds then switching back to high and then to low will allow me to use low beam. However, recently they have failed to come one at all and gone out without any changing from high to low. This was also an issue with my 1995 2500 Ram, which Dodge excluded from its recall (99V024)

The headlights are great on low beam but diffuse to the sides on high beams. Very little light is focused on the center of the road. I have had the headlights aligned twice. They are much improved, but still unsatisfactory. New, higher powered halogen bulbs helped some, but the high beam simply "plays out". the lense system seems to not Focus light where the driver can see with confidence at highway speeds.

Headlights come on at all time, and dealership is aware of problem. Battery runs down, and he has to have a jump start.
