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.

The lock on my driver door is stuck in the locked position and will not unlock with the key fob, outer manual lock, or interior power lock. Cannot even pull up the lock, can only open door by pulling interior door handle. Researched and this is a pretty common problem across all Dodge models around my year model.

Ram 2500 Power Wagon 6-cyl Diesel

  • 60,200 miles
Driver door power lock actuator failed, resulting in disabling the outside door handle and the only key cylinder on the vehicle. As a result, the keys were locked in the truck with the motor running, and there was no way to enter the vehicle with a spare key since there is no lock cylinder on the passenger side door on this truck. Note that locking the keys in the truck with the motor running when experiencing this failure is virtually inevitable with this truck, since it automatically locks the doors when you reach 10 mph and the other three doors stay locked when you exit from the driver door. I had to call aaa to open the truck since there was no way to get in even with a spare key, since this failure disables the only door lock on the truck. I believe this is a safety concern since being locked out of your running vehicle in the winter could be a safety hazard, especially if you are out of cellphone range or your cellphone is locked in the vehicle, as mine was.
