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 5.9L V6

I have found this posted on several web sites... Dodge has a problem with this fuse box not protected and it corrodes and the whole system will eventually go bad. I was going to get it fixed but the only problem I have... consistently ... is NO running,license or tail lights. They say they have no previous complaints... MY problem is that are saying they can replace it for 757.00 ??? This is an electrical part and they are putting a shield to PROTECT the fuse box? It must be a problem they are aware of but only offer a SOLUTION to keep you from having to buy it again... or I assume.

My problem is even with that does this fuse box hold up over time ... they only warrant electrical parts for 90 days???

Should I just not get it fixed ... bypass the fuse box and hope the box doesn't completely fall apart!!
