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.

Grand Cherokee

  • 110,000 miles
On multiple occasions, my vehicle has shown symptoms that appear to be related to the recent Chrysler ignition switch recall. One persisting problem is when I am driving with my headlights on, the interior lights (dashboard, radio, and climate control illumination) and all exterior lights (headlights, tail lights, and any other illuminated position lights) will rapidly flash on and off. Currently, my remedy for this problem, when it is happening, is to turn on the turning indicator which appears to return the lights to normal. More recently, while leaving my neighborhood, all of my dashboard warning lights illuminated and then the dashboard went dark all together. The remedy for this problem was to turn the car completely off and back on again. Last but not least, while traveling about 65 mph on a highway, my knee bumped the ignition key which switched the car to the accessory position, rendering the car powerless.

I have received notice of a recall, P41 / NHTSA 14V-438 dated 9/3/2014. I have received multiple notices that this ignition switch failure may result in loss of engine power, power steering, and braking assist increasing the risk of a crash and disabling one or more of the vehicles safety features including the frontal airbags. Each time I contact the dealer who states they don't have the parts to fix it yet. I believe that having to wait over a year for a new ignition switch to fix a safety issue is unreasonable and irresponsible. I'm sure if I had a broken ignition switch any other time they would replace it quickly. I want my vehicle properly fixed, in a reasonable amount of time, over a year is not reasonable.
