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.

Headlights malfunctioned attributed to the front control module according to Chrysler star representative.this is a "known" problem that the dealer was not prepared or able to diagnose. According to Chrysler star support desk the front control module P/N 56051036ad has a known problem. I was only able to find this out after calling Chrysler customer service and insisting that the dealer call their star support desk and open an incident. The rep at the support desk immediately told the service tech that the front control module had a known problem. The intermittent failure created a safety hazard on the highway by not functioning at all or malfunctioning. Lights on truck can fail at any time headlights, taillights, brake lights because of this front control module there is no backup on the system when it fails. Here is the link to a service bulletin put out by Dodge www.xkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_xk_0806005.pdf. this should be a recall item !!

I own a 2004 2500 Dodge Ram pick-up. When the high beam headlights are turned on, the low beam lights and the driving lights are disabled. The result is a lack of light being cast upon the roadway. The high beams alone only cast a hazy beam that when used off highway is dangerous because you cannot see the ground in front of you. On the highway they do no more than blind oncoming cars and leave the road in a shadow. There are many postings on this subject on the web forum, "dodgeramforum.com" if you use the link below it will take you directly where most of the complaints are. I believe it only a matter of time before there is a serious accident because of this problem and that the Dodge company needs to have a fix for this problem as there is now a company called "bright lights" making a fix for this. www.dodgeforum.com/forumid_106/tt.htm.
