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.

Odometer/ speedometer/ techometer and signal light for the air bag stopped working. All the wirnig connections were checked and tightened by the dealership, which solved the problem for a while. Because this happened intermittently, dealer was not able to fix problem. When the owner hits the dash very hard everything returns to normal.

Cherokee 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
When driving the cruise control kicked on, and it came on/off. Whenever it wanted to. Also, the air bag sensor light came on, and the light came on and off whenever it wanted. In addition, speedodmeter didn't work, and the consumer had the vehicle in the shop four times for the air bag sensor light. The vehicle is still in the shop and the dealer can't determine the problem. The dash board goes dead while driving because connectors were not seating properly. Fuse panel falls off and will not stay on at all because right kick panel is deformed.
