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.

When performing a left hand turn while accelerating away from a stop my air bag warning light and associated chime came on. While driving in a straight line with the wheel centered the light stayed locked in, during a sweeping right hand turn the air bag warning light extinguished. This pattern continued until I returned home and checked that the steering wheel position was in fact the cause of the air bag warning light and associated chime. Any steering wheel position left of center would immediately cause the light and chime and any position right of center of would extinguish the light within 10 seconds. I knew at this point that the steering wheel clock spring wiring assembly was faulty and scheduled a dealership appointment for verification and repair. Dealership performed a troublecode check and received dtc: B1B02-driver airbag squib 1 circuit open. Dealership further confirmed by cycling the steering wheel and code went from active to stored. The clock spring was replaced and retested similarly to my above steering wheel position check and no more lights, chimes, or trouble codes were expressed. Faulty clockspring ribbon wire assemblies are a recurring quality and safety issue with Chrysler vehicles and Jeep Wrangler jk's specifically. Per this website, actions have been taken to recall 2008-2012 RHD jk's and a customer satisfaction warranty extension has been issued for 2007 lhd jk's of 10 years, 150000 miles. This is most certainly a safety issue as a faulty clock spring can result in the driver side airbag not deploying in an accident if the proper conditions are met, and depending upon the nature of the fault in the clockspring the ESC system can also malfunction due to the lack of steering input signal to the system. Further investigation for all affected makes, models, and model years, must be completed in the interest of public safety.

This Jeep has never been used for any type of off roading, yet it has a burnt smell coming from the transmission. It was taken to the dealer where it was checked however they could not determine what was causing the burnt smell and smoke coming from the transmission. It has now been checked a couple of times, where only an transmission oil change was performed because they never found out the problem. I can only hope I do not become a statistic, before the problem is found.

Tipm is creating a major safety issue with my 2010 Jeep Wrangler. On multiple occasions, the headlights fail to work on my vehicle on start up or once the vehicle is in operation. The dealership looked at the Jeep and stated the tipm module was bad and needed to be replaced. The part was indefinitely on backorder from Jeep, and could not even be replaced if it were under warranty. Driving this vehicle that is under 2 years old and has a major safety issue is unacceptable. This appears to be a wide spread issue for a number of years with the tipm module on Jeep / Chrysler vehicles. This will happen to someone while driving at night without their knowledge, and create a deadly event. Would like to see Chrysler take responsibility for this dangerous situation and correct the issue to protect the safety of the missions of people driving their vehicles.

I have a 2010 sport Wrangler unlimited 4dr, at approx 3800 miles the car went dead on the highway at approx 60mph. All the indicator lights came on and the steering and brakes were hard to control. Momentarily the car resumed and went back to dealer. Have maintenance slips and initial complaint. Same incident happened at approx 4700 miles went back to same dealer. Checked online with Chrysler although the first time they replaced the ignition coil. It hasn't been resolved and I don't believe it will be resolved at the dealer level.
