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.

We own a 2002 Dodge 3500,and we have been fighting with the dash,you will be driving it and all at once you have nothing for gauges even the temp goes off. No speedometer Tack pressure or heat NOTHING. We have taken to a dealer they have tried a new dash and it is not the problem.I have blowed the engine up had to rebuild it becuase of this problem,I am proud to report that I made it 23 miles with a 32 foot gooseneck stock trailer loades with 14 650 pound steers and 4 pallets of salt and mineral in tow still going 60 miles and hour before giving up the ghost.If my dash would have been working I would have known it was getting hot.It will ocassionally come back on by restarting it or it just comes back on.
