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 my vehicle on the highway I noticed that all of the warning lights on my dashboard were flashing on and then off again, this happened numerous times. It stopped after a few minutes. My fuel, tachometer, speedometer, oil pressure gauges also went from the on to off positions. I notified my car dealership and brought the vehicle in for repair, the service manager said " they can't find the problem if it doesn't present itself " so I drove the vehicle back home. Weeks had passed and the same things happened again, all the warning lights came on then they went off numerous times, the gauges went on and off also. I called the dealership again, they told me take off any unnecessary items off the keyring this could be the problem. I told the dealership that " I don't have anything on my keyring" they told me they wouldn't be able to find the problem unless it presents itself. I spoke to a mechanic who has 30 yrs of experience in auto repairs and electrical troubleshooting. He told me it was probably the ignition cut-off switch or short in the wiring harness that was causing my problems. He told me to research it on the internet. I did and I found other Jeep owners with the same issue and resolved it with a repair. My question is this. Why won't Chrysler own up to this problem and fix it?

All dashboard lights come on as if car is stalling or ignition switch is being turned off. Momentary loss of power steering and brakes. Potentially very dangerous situation. Dealership (tom O'brien Jeep) refuses to fix and tells me to just wait for the recall notice.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

In may of 2014 I replaced my starter because when I would attempt to start my vehicle it would crank but the engine would not turn over. The condition persisted even after putting on an new starter. I eventually went to a Jeep dealer and they were unable to remedy the problem. I received a recall notice from Chrysler about P41/NHTSA 14V-438 recall but was not given a time frame as to when I would be able to take the vehicle in for servicing. In the meantime I continue to drive the one vehicle and it has continued to not start in instances when I need it most. It has done so while my wife had the vehicle which has caused me great distress as she was alone and panicked when it happened. The vehicle does start eventually after about 20 minutes or so. This is unsafe and unacceptable. We spoke to a representative at the dealership where the vehicle was purchased and she told us she could not say when the part would be available. She went on to say we could wait it out or trade it in and basically tack on the amount owed on to the purchase of another vehicle. This is not an option. This situation is very inconvenient as I use the vehicle primarily to commute to work and if unable to drive to work our household income will take a huge blow. We seek remedy.

Late August, we received recall notice concerning ignition switch and/or keys. We were to disconnect all keys and use only the ignition key while driving the car. Chrysler said we would get a follow-up notice when the part was available and then we could schedule the repair with the local dealer. Today, Nov. 26, the dealer told us the part had not even been made yet!!!! how can this happen? need to get this problem resolved asap!!!

Numerous times I've been driving and my car has lost power and I've had to restart the engine. Sometimes it takes a while for my car to start on the first turn of the key. The start gets dragged on. Sometimes all my check engine lights come on with every other lights as well. Several times I have to wait then start the car and it will turn on. Besides the car completely turning off while I'm driving, now my car won't turn on at all. The battery is fine. Radio and everything turns on. But the ignition won't click over and start my car. So, now I am with no car for work. I called Chrysler headquarters for my calls recall back in September and was told they are out of the part they need. My car worked then, just very sketchy, so I was ok waiting, just extremely cautious. Now it won't even turn on, I called Jeep, they said they are still waitin for the part and all I can do is wait on the list. They won't even give me a loaner since it's a recall issue and not a "service" issue. I have no car, and not the money for a new one, so now I'm at a loss.
