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.

problem #2

Feb 012006

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 37,000 miles


Blower controls/resistor pack short out, fail and cause wiring harness to melt for the HVAC blower and blower controls. Blower wiring harness appears to pull the full current of the blower motor through the whole switch controls wiring harness, this causes an overload condition and overheats the wiring of the control system, causing severe melting of the plastic components and poses a severe fire risk.

problem #1

Wrangler 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 20,900 miles
Noticed a burning smell and thought it was one of four trucks ahead of me. Pulled off onto my exit and continued to notice the smell. Smoke began pouring from the dash. I had seen the service department the same morning and informed them my blower motor had been working intermittently. They verified the problem and ordered a new motor. Upon inspection of my vehicle I notice that the area around the blower motor is extremely hot. Blower motor has the following: Label 1 valeo:kjlhd 929520G rev a -- pass 11-18-4 10:10:50 label 2 Bosch made in Mexico dpl 653 12V 9 000 025 075 19 904 929431H cw 49104 1.
