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.

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.

Bought a used 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 trx4 with the 5.9L cummins. Driving home from the used car dealership, my turn signal switch was not working properly. It would vary from when I had in the left turn position, sometimes the right blinker would flash too, or nothing would blink. Sometimes, when I make a right turn and initiate the right turn signal, nothing flashes or if I put it in the left turn position, then the right turn signal flashes. I purchased it used on Sep 1, 2009; and this is my first Dodge and more importantly, a life-threatening equipment fault/malfunction. I have read online several articles of this affecting several year model Dodge Ram 2500/3500 trucks. If this is known, why isn't a "recall" initiated and I as a user/consumer, now has to pay another $100 for a multi turn switch, from which I read, may malfunction within a year.
