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 windshield wipers will often stop on the intermittent or slower settings. This happens without warning and the wipers will stop midway across the windshield. The only way to get them started again is to switch the control to the fastest setting. The wipers occasionally turn themselves on after driving over bumps at highway speeds.

The windshield wipers will stop and start working randomly. They will stop in the middle of the windshield and tend to only work when put in the fastest setting. Sometimes they stop working altogether and will just start working again randomly. I have two trucks same year/model with this exact same issue.

Wipers on my truck have a mind of their own they work completely random, sometimes not at all, sometimes stop while driving, intermittent sometimes goes full blast. This has been an ongoing issue for years with countless write ups and complaints online but no support from Chrysler. It is a huge safety concern as you can lose visibility when they stop for no reason or dont turn on in heavy rain.

The wind shield wiper's would cycle more than once on the lower intermittent setting. Then it was all the time, now they may work or they may not ! they may cycle when there not on, or while I'm cleaning the wind shield, with the key out of the ignition, there are a lot of Dodge truck owners that are having the same issues. Class action if you ask me ! especially for the amount of money these rig's cost ! [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
