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 #1

Oct 012013

Ram 2500 Laramie 5.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 110,000 miles


Headlights randomly do not function. Multiple times, individual lights have not worked when turned on. Sometimes it's the left low beam or it may be the right high beam. Sometimes they all work. It does not appear to have anything to do with the switch and I have replaced the bulbs and checked connections. I also checked the TIPM connection. All looks good.

My current fix for the problem is, I have completely rewired the low beam circuit from the battery to fuse to relay to lights. The relay is triggered by the fog lights so I can keep a stock appearance in the cab. I have not yet had any issues with the fog lights. At least now I know the low beams are reliable and they are generally bright enough especially since I have to have the fog lights on to make them function.
