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 6-cyl Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 10,370 miles


I purchased a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 3 months ago and only have 10,000 miles on the truck. On Friday, November 11, 2005, I returned home and noticed that my brake lights remained after I exited the truck. I tried turning the lights on and off, and they remained on. I decided to drive to the maxwell Chrysler dealer a few blocks away as I was afraid my battery would go dead. As I was proceeding down my street, I noticed the brake indicator light came on. I went to brake, and there was no brake pedal! it had fallen off. I made it to the dealership using my emergency brake. They said the "clasp" that holds the pedal had fallen off. It was not on the floor, so I don't know if it was broken, missing, etc. They replaced the clasp. I was horrified to think that I was supposed to have been on interstate I-35 towing my horses. Please look into this asap. I would like to know if this is an isolated incident, or whether this could be a possible defect.
