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.

2003 Dodge Stratus Owner Comments

problem #2

Stratus SE 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 74,000 miles


When driving at night the dash lights go out when I put the right turn signal on. I thought this was the only problem but later I discovered that my tail lights will go out too! The headlights stay on and both front and rear signals will blink but no tail lights and ALL the lights on the interior go out. ac, stereo, instrument cluster. It only does this when I put the right turn signal on. I can usually turn the lights off and back on again and the lights will be back to normal. but sometimes I have to monkey with the switch before they decide to come back on again. One sure way to get pulled over with this kind of problem. I'll never buy another Dodge product. Junk!

This is an extremely annoying problem. I just bought this a car a week ago and with only 67,000 miles on it i feel its pretty ridiculous that this car is having a problem like this.
