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.

When driving in rain at a safe speed, wipers would not come on, and then the wipers would start and stop working. When I switched on a turn blinker, both blinkers began to flash. Our local Dodge dealership says there on back order 4,000 of this part required to fix this problem. There have been complaints about this since 2009. Does it take a loss of life for a recall to take place?

I own a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 megacab with 5.9 diesel engine. The Agency has received three reports of improper turn signal function. The complainants report that moving the turn signal stalk to signal a left turn can result in no flashing of the left turn signal but improper flashing of the right turn signal. Likewise the same opposite improper operation occurs when moving the turn signal stalk to signal a right turn. The incorrect flashing signal appears at both the dashboard indicator light and at the exterior front and rear turn signal lighting positions. There are many complaints related to this issue on the web and it is very dangerous. Please advise.

On numerous occasions over the past couple of years my turn signal has malfunctioned. Try to signal a left turn and the right signal turns on and vice versa. It is an intermittent problem and could cause an accident.

2006 Dodge Ram 2500 diesel- the turn signal indicator frequently activates the turn signals in the wrong direction. I've noticed that adjusting the tilt column corrects the signal in most cases. There seems to be a flaw in the signal system that causes a short or something of that nature. I've had this problem since 2007, within months of buying the truck. It was infrequent at first and I neglected to take it in while the truck was under warranty. Now it happens almost every day.

Turn signal displays right turn when put in to left turn mode. As well as inadvertently jumping from left turn to right turn. Also, windshield wipers will be inoperative during the times when the turn signals are acting screwy.
