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.

With vehicle parked and the ignition off, I would try to start the car. When I would turn the key, nothing would happen, no sound as if the car was trying to start, not even a tic tic tic. I also noticed that the break pedal would not depress. The first few times I called aaa, but they couldn't start it and had to tow it to a garage. This has happened to me at least seven times leaving me stranded at night in the winter alone along a dark country road. It has happened at the grocery store in the summer when I already loaded all of my groceries into the car, and at my cabin which is over an hour from where I live. I am in my late 60's and walk with a cane so it truly has become a safety issue for me. I have been in touch with corporate office for Jeep and have had two cases opened with them. The problem is always something electrical. One time the dealer had my car for over a month trying to figure out the problem. They have put in a new starter several times. They have removed the remote starter installed by Jeep when I bought the car, so now I can't use the remote starter I paid to have installed and then paid again to have it uninstalled. The latest they told me is that they do not have the correct part for a permanent fix. They can only replace a part with a new part of the same that will eventually fail. This last time I was told that Jeep would pay the bill which they have not. I have now had to pay more to increase my aaa coverage for distance towing since I have been left stranded at my cabin two times. I have also had to pay to rent a car while Jeep worked on my vehicle. In addition, there is a safety recall on the ignition switch which the dealer has not repaired within a reasonable amount of time. The date below is just the most recent event. There have been at least 7 similar events.

While driving at approx. 45 mph all the indicator/warning lights on the dash started flashing repeatedly. This lasted approx. 5-10 seconds then stopped. This same issue happened a couple months prior. I believe this problem is caused by a faulty ignition switch. I received a recall notice over 1 year ago for this switch but no dealer has parts available to fix the recall. The recall states that this faulty switch; "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 vehicle's safety features including the frontal airbags." I need this repaired asap before my wife or small children are hurt! please help.
