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.

When driving at night or when lights must be used during day light hours the lights in the cluster panel go out and come back on or dim and the return to their original brightness. When the turn signal "stalk" is puled in or pushed in everything is ok for a few miles. Also, once in a while dashboard lights go off and on and chimes go off and on. This is occurring more frequently.

This vehicle has been given to the dealer twice for the 14V-438 safety recall spanning 2014-2015 and twice it hasn't been fixed. It's not the dealers fault (apparently) because whoever is supposed to be sending these parts is not doing so. First attempt, the dealer had no parts because Chrysler hadn't sent any parts for the recall. Second attempt could not be completed because Chrysler did not send enough parts, it takes three I'm told, to make this repair. So you guys keep sending me these recall things, I keep taking the car in, but Chrysler obviously doesn't care enough to fix the potential problem because they won't send the parts to the dealer. But we are supposed to take these recalls seriously ?? Chrysler doesn't. they no doubt are hoping I'll sell the car but ir's a 9 year old(new) vehicle with only 22000 miles on it and is in cherry condition. I bought it new and "it" will probably outlive me.
