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.

2001 Jeep Wrangler Owner Comments

problem #2

Jan 152002

Wrangler 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 10,000 miles


A/C heater blower wiring causes fire at center of dashboard. When A/C or heater is placed in high blower switchs are selector wiring over loads and causes burning. This is not an isolated case. Noted at salvage auctions many 2000 and up Jeep Wrangler catch fire in this area and burn complete. Hard to figure after fire what has happen. Im sure insurance companys would be interested in this defect. Do not know how many injurys, but im sure there has been some. I have diconnected the high position wire so that overload would not accure till I could figure a fix or Jeep will admit to a problem and a fix.
