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.

Vehicle turns off while I am driving. This has occurred 4 times. I lose power steering, & power brakes. I also have had many incidents where it won't start unless I take the key put, and put it back in. Or it will start, then immediately turn off. I have gotten messages that I have the wrong key. I have had the battery, starter, key fobs, and key sensor replaced.

Drove the car home where it would not turn over, the key would not turn the engine on. Luckily, this did not happen while driving or there would have been an accident. It was as if the part that the key went in was jammed. The car was towed to the dealership where it was determined that the wcm was not recognizing the keys. The wcm was replaced and as a result, two new fobiks had to be purchased. The dealership tested both the power and the ground to the wcm, all tested good, found that the wcm was not recognizing the keys that were in the ignition. We received the recall on the fobiks, and submitted the paperwork for reimbursement. We waited the 60 days that was required but when calling about the refund was told that we would have to wait for the second recall in order to be reimbursed. I was told that even if there had been no problem with my vehicle, and if I would have taken the car to the dealership for a new wcm, I would have to pay for the repair and then wait for the second recall notice before reimbursement. The representative repeated this info to me several times B/C I could not believe what I was hearing. I asked for a supervisor and none was available. The supervisor was to call me back but I received no such call. Per the recall, I have provided a copy of the original receipt and I confirmed that they did receive the receipt. I am asking for the Chrysler recall to reimburse me for my expense as their recall states "reimbursement will be sent to you within 60 days".

I shut the vehicle off and went back to start. I was able to turn electronic key the electronics came on but it wouldn't turn the engine over. Went back the next day and it did start, took to spirit Jeep, swedesboro, NJ. They ran diagnostics and determined to be win module. Contacted Chrysler and told it was not part of the recall, I am having fixed anyway. Prior to this there were two incidents that may be related, around a month or two before the motor turned off while in traffic, I shifted to neutral and restarted. I thought I may have hit the key with my knee. The second incident was that the airbag alarm on the dash came on, had it diagnosed at a local garage and they said that it was the passenger seatbelt was defective so I believe he disarmed the airbag. After looking online it seems that these are repetitive problems with Chrysler products. And are related to the L25 recall. This is no cheap fix $750 for module and 2 keys. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated.
