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.

The original problem was a battery light that came on when the car was being driven during a light rain. The solution suggested by our normal mechanic (who is very good and has serviced the car for years) was to replace the alternator and then it was noted the battery was bad. It was replaced since it was three years old. After the repair the car started to die intermittently while being driven. The car was taken back to the mechanic who check the diagnostics and said it appeared to be pointing to the ignition switch (based on their diagnostic flowchart). The mechanics service technician was able to duplicate the stalling in the vehicle when he drove it. Suggested we take back to the dealer who had replaced the ignition switch tumblers during the recall for this vehicle last November. The dealer wanted a $85 diagnostic fee to just check the switch. We received a download of the diagnostic codes which appear to be related to multiple failures of ignition modules but the dealer reported his service technician had not been able to duplicate the failure. He thought it might be the tipm but was sure it was not the switch. He was unable to tell us what the failure was and said we would have to pay for more diagnostics if he was to find out what exactly it was. I took it back to my mechanic who replaced alternator. However, as I was driving the car last Saturday it died after we stopped at a railroad crossing waiting on a train and then tried to cross the tracks after the arms had gone up. The crossing T-bones into another road and a very deep bar ditch at the side of that road. The crossing was a steep incline. Almost put car in ditch. My wife would not have been able to control and stop it as I barely was able to. After reviewing other similar complaints I now believe it is the tipm. This is safety related since all safety equipment is tied to this.

Soon after the P41 ignition switch recall, while driving 1 mile, the instrument cluster gauges stopped working-speedo, gas, etc, all warning lights illuminated. Information messages in the ic noted "service required : and transmission -over the temperature allowed U1403, U1411, U110E, U110F and others all implausible signals to ic. While driving transmission an road speed decreased immediately while at speed and engine and transmission to not operate in a predictably safe operation. These are the symptoms that the recall was to repair. What is the next step?

The vehicle typically stalls while driving at highway speeds but has stalled on city streets. When the vehicle stalls I am able to turn the ignition back on and drive. I have had the P41 / NHTSA 14V-438 recall and this did not resolve the issues. It is stalling even more often now. I have had this issue for the last 3 years I have owned the vehicle. I have taken it in for repair to 3 different repair shops not including the recall and it is still not fixed. This is a major safety concern. The vehicle stalled one particular time and I was almost hit by a bus on the highway. When the vehicle stalls you lose power steering and I was lucky enough to make it out of the way. The current mileage is approximately 132,500.

When engine was off, ignition was off and key was out of ignition, lights were turned off, headlights turned on and off twice for no reason. While driving on highway on slight incline, engine lost power for a few seconds then returned to normal. Vehicle has been to a certified Jeep repair shop and they could not find the problem.
