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.

Ram 2500 SLT 6.0L Cummins

My door electrical wiring for the power windows, door locks, and only rear door speakers stopped working. Further investigation found that the electrical wiring harness in the door jam that passes through the protective rubber tubing all where broken in the center of the tube. I repaired them with solder and shrink tubing which lasted about 6 months. This is a total pain, key fob does not unlock rear doors, rear windows don't function, speakers crack and stop working. I am concerned that this problem is going to start shorting out electrical systems and/or start a fire. I refuse to purchase new wiring harnesses as from what I have read, they will have the same problem in time. Dodge needs to figure this out and fix our rigs. I have always been a cummins man, but I am soon going to become a duramax man. Dodge is going to lose many more customers if they don't start taking care of them.

Ram 2500 2500HD 5.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles

Occassionally the a/c blower and turn signals would not work when I started my vehicle. If I re-tilted my steering wheel, they would begin to work again. I discovered after removing the panel below the steering column and jiggled the connection of wires, both would begin working again. What a pain to have to do this while driving.
