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.

problem #2

Apr 192012

Ram Van 1500 Explorer 5.2V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 57,000 miles


The van wouldnot start. I noticed the NO BUS code in the odometer window. Turns out the computer went bad at 57000mi. I had to send it to a private business they charged me 275.00. The dealer wanted 700.00. I got it back 10 days later, installed it and it seemed fine, three thousand miles later it's doing the same thing again.

problem #1

Oct 052012

Ram Van 1500 5.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 64,500 miles

bought this and drove it from Michigan to Texas but now it won't start in the am but raising the hood for an hour or two then it will start. Coming from a low humidity climate to a hi one may be the problem but just not sure. Put a scanner on it but shows nothing for codes- turns over fine just doesn't start-I would like to know what can cause this problem
