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 contact owns a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500. The contact previously took his vehicle to the dealer for rough idling. The dealer replaced three injectors and there had been no further occurrences. On April 15, 2008, while driving 55 mph, the contact depressed the accelerator pedal and the speed increased to 80 mph. He depressed the pedal again and the speed instantly shot up to 100 mph. He placed the vehicle into neutral and coasted to the side of the road. The vehicle was towed back to the dealer and they found error code P2122 for the ECM assembly, as well as bell housing failure. The manufacturer stated that they would not offer any assistance and the contact would be responsible for the repairs. The current mileage was 155,559 and failure mileage was 70,000.
