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 contact stated car shut down at slow speeds. He owns a 2004 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. Has been having this problem since 3-05. There were 4,000 miles on the car when it first shut down. The car did not make any noise before this happened. No lights came on. The dealership could duplicate the problem. The dealership has talked to the manufacturer. The dealership put a brand new computer and a new throttle body, but the problem recurred.
