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.

The wiring to and the fuel pump housing melted the wiring that goes from the back side of the plug and down to the pump that is submerged in fuel also melted it was a matter of time before it caught fire. The vehicle would still run and it would randomly short out while driving. I've replaced the pump and kept the parts that have burnt.

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Patriot. The contact stated that while at a stop sign, the vehicle stalled. The failure recurred multiple times over the past seven years. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 300.

Smelled burning plastic... faint at first, but kept getting stronger. Pulled over to find the problem and saw flames coming out of the speaker in the left rear door. Half of the speaker cover was totally burned away. Poured water on the fire to put it out. Also poured water through window down behind the door panel to make sure any flames/sparks that weren't visible would be extinguished.

The day after my Jeep was purchased, it would not start. We brought it back to the dealer and were told it was the ignition switch. There were no problems with the Jeep for about 2 years, but then the car started shutting off while we were driving. It would always a cut back on though. Now it will not start at all. The alternator has been changed and so has the battery, but the car still will not even start with a jump.
