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.

2006 Dodge Ram 3500 windshield wipers stop working until left turn signal is activated. This happens repeatedly causing loss of visibility while driving in rain.

The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500. The contact stated after purchasing the vehicle the windshield wipers did not work. The contact stated there are a lot of complaints on the internet regarding the windshield wipers for this year make and model. The contact called the manufacturer and they informed the contact they will not repair the vehicle because the vehicle was purchased under "as is" conditions. The contact stated the manufacturer should issue a recall for the windshield wipers because it's difficult to see in the rain and snow while driving. The contact also stated the lack of windshield wipers could lead to a crash in rainy conditions. The failure mileage was 104,000.

Erratic windshield wiper performance followed by complete failure of the wipers. Wipers stalled in the center of the windshield in a thunderstorm while towing a 24,000 lb trailer on interstate 65 with semi truck/trailers on 3 sides. This was the 2nd incident of wiper failure. The first failure occurred about 6 months earlier. After leaving the truck parked overnite, the wiper operation returned to normal. I took the truck to my local Dodge dealer after both occurrences. They could not find any problems with the wipers after the 1st occurrence while the truck was under warranty. After the 2nd occurrence I was told that the total integrated power module (tipm)had failed and needed to be replaced and since the truck was now out of warranty that I would have to pay for the replacement. I have not yet replaced the tipm. During both wiper failures, the driving situation was very dangerous because road spray covered the windshield and severely cut down visibility. Phone interview update (10/01/09): Owner took the vehicle in for repairs after tipm (total integrated power module )was diagnosed to be the cause of the wiper failure mode. Owner states that the tipm was replaced and had multiple failure modes occur including : inoperable wipers, flipped turn signals, and inoperable cruise control. The owner took the vehicle back for repairs and the multifunction swithc was replaced. Owner states no further problems.
