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.

problem #2

Feb 012004

Ram 2500 5.9L Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles


From about 2004 until 2012, the fuel gauge would intermittently drop to zero, the chime would ring, then the gauge would go back to normal. Since it started while the truck was in warranty, the dealer tried to fix the problem by replacing the instrument cluster. Did not fix the problem. In 2012, the problem went away, but a new, similar problem has take its place. Now the air bag light comes on intermittently and the chime rings. Sometimes it will ring 6-7 times per minute.

problem #1

Ram 2500 XLT 5.7L Hemi

  • Automatic transmission
  • 122,236 miles

Fuel gauge randomly blanks out to ZERO fuel level (including low fuel alarm sound), even with a full tank. Turning engine off, then back on usually resets the gauge. Sounds like a loose connection somewhere, not sure where to start looking.
