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.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 56,000 miles


The contact owns a 2006 Jeep Wrangler. The vehicle is a right hand ride Jeep. At 9,000 miles, the contact had to replace the heating switches and wiring harness. She took the vehicle to the dealer and they dismantled the dashboard. They noticed several malfunctions and replaced a number of wiring harnesses in order to repair the heating switches. Recently, the vehicle had to be returned to the dealer due to alternator failure. The alternator sent so much heat to the battery that is caused the water to boil. Sulfuric acid spilled all over the firewall of the vehicle. The contact was informed that the alternator was sending currents of up to 19 volts to the battery. The failure mileage was 56,000. Updated 05/21/08 the consumer stated he replaced the heater switch 3 times, the alternator and starter were replaced as well. The defroster was inoperative. Updated 05/20/08
