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.

I have a GJC1998 and every now and then the interior lights go off and on by themselves. Does anyone know of a recall for this?

Grand Cherokee TSI 5.2L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 266,000 miles

The entire dash lights dim and brighten on their own. Most times, at night, I can not even see them! When I hit even the smallest bump they will brighten briefly. They do it in the day time also.
