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.

Turn signals had been operating erratically for about 10K miles. Misty day, turned wiper switch on to intermittent, nothing. Moved switch to continuous, nothing. Pushed washer button, nothing. Had 'smart switch' changed. Wipers and washers worked immediately after delivery. Less than 1 week and less than 1,000 miles later, no wipers. Original and replacement switches were oe parts. Can live without the turn signals. Dangerous to operate in anything but sunny days without wipers and washers.

I was driving down the highway and about 10pm it was raining had wipers on in medium speed wipers kept stopping. Had a lot of cars passing by me on coming lane and they would flash their lights to me to indicate my light was off but the switch is turn on in low beam position. Had some friends following me that day as well and they told me that my brake light was not working nor my lights.. the following Wednesday which would be July 25 2012 I took my truck to the dealership I bought from, but all the lights work except for the cargo light and the low windshield wiper warning kept coming on.. the truck has been in there for a week now and on Wednesday August 1 2012 I called the dealership to see what is wrong with my truck and the said the tipm has been fried and all the headlights, brake lights, turn signals and wipers does not work any more they have to replace the tipm. I only had the truck for one week and this went out already. It's not good Dodge or Chrysler should come up with something else so all the safety things don't fail all at once.

The contact owns a 2008 Dodge Ram 2500. The contact stated that when he activated the right turn signal the left signal would illuminate, and when he activated the left turn signal, the right signal would activate. The dealer made two attempts to duplicate the failure by replacing the multi function switch however, the failure recurred. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The current mileage was 75,000. The approximate failure mileage was 30,000.

Trying to signal a turn left and the right turn signal comes. Also when its raining outside my wipers only run at intermittent speed and if I signal right or left while wipers are running the wipers will stop until signal has been turned off. This is very dangerous when raining out are when driving in traffic and trying to change lanes and I can not change cause the signal says im going right and im really trying to go left. Please consider this a safety issue I can not belie it hasn't been already.
