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.

I received a recall notice for an ignition switch, last summer. I contacted fox negaunee, which is the only Jeep dealer in marquette. I was told that they did not have enough parts on hand to complete all the vehicles at the time, and they would get back to me and put me on a list. That was the last time I heard from them. It has been about 9 months. Recall number, P41/NHTSA 14V-438

Was driving my Jeep at night with my infant in the back seat, 55mph. Suddenly all the lights in the dashboard and parking assistance lights in the back all lite up. At the same time the heater stopped working and my headlights went out as well. They came back on about 5 seconds later. I continued to drive when it did it again. I switched the lights out of auto. The same problem occurred again but this time the head lamps did not go out, all the warning lights on the dash still flashed and heat went off. It resumed the whole way home but never fully lost power. It still does this on a daily basis, multiple times. I feel as if it's getting worse but no one can diagnose and figure out what's wrong with it. Considering the airbag warning and others(all of them) light up, I'm concerned for my safety and my sons. Today as I was driving it seemed worse. Even turn signal lights are effected when this happens. Today my speedometer, gas gage... everything on my dashboard lite up and my meters quit working. It all resumed as normal after it happened but it happened approximately 15 times during a 10 minute drive. Sometimes back to back to back. It also happened while sitting at a stop light when I noticed my turn signals also went out at that time, while stationary and while turning. Happens no matter if stationary or in motion.

I waited a long time to receive the recall notice from Jeep and received it late in 2015. I called my local dealership, world Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram in shrewsbury NJ in October and then again November 11, 2016. Both times I was told my name would go on a list and I would be called to have the new ignition installed on my vehicle asap. It is not February 11, 2016 and my Jeep has not been repaired and the dealership has not called me. I fear for the safety of myself and my 2 children every time I drive my car.
