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.

My safety issue is the fact that I cannot control the airflow to the windshield for safe visibility, the inability to prevent or clear fogging. Snow-ice etc. From my windshield and side windows. Due to failure of transfer doors from poor engineering in the heating and ac system. A very expensive repair especially for some one on a fixed income. This failure seems to be a common fault on 2002-2007 Dodge at just over 40000 miles.

2005 Dodge 2500 power windows on the pass. Side front pass. Go down don't come up, driver side rear pass. Window sometimes works and sometimes doesn't from the drivers door switches, open the same door and the interior light doesn't come on, third brake light works sometimes, windshield wipers act as if you have them on the constant cycle when it is in the intermittent cycle, blend door does not change from floor to vent or defrost.

Ram 2500 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
2005 Dodge Ram 1500, defrost door in heater/HVAC housing broken, not allowing for 'full' defrost of the windshield. Difficult in colder climate (Michigan) to keep windshield clear. Repair tops $700 with only $50 in parts. Chrylser will not assist with the repair however they have a tsb dating back to 2003 identifying the problem.
