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.

While driving the vehicle at night, the dash panel lights and headlights began to flicker on and off repeatedly. Turned the headlights off then back on and the problem went away for a few minutes then started again. The next day the service engine soon light came on and I lost acceleration ability, RPM's went up but the vehicle wouldn't accelerate while already in gear on a main road at a stop sign. Codes P0700 and P2767 were set.

  • 66,000 miles
Re: P41/NHTSA 14V-438 on two occasions (1/23/2015) (3/19/2015) the key slipped out of the ignition while the car was in motion. Both times resulted in loss of power, steering & brakes. I have called my local Chrysler dealer several times and have been told the "free recall" switches are not available yet, but I could make an appointment for service if I paid for the replacement and labor. This recall was issued in Sept 2014. I am waiting for a resolution to this problem. Can you assist?
