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.

My headlights constantly fail and will start to blink on and off and stay off!! this is a common problem with this model and Chrysler can't seem to fix the issue. The safety of driving down the road and having your headlights turn off and not come back is a huge issue and should be addressed immediately. I would hope to think that someone would take the responsibility to rectify this problem before someone gets seriously injured!!!

While driving at highway speeds, the vehicle headlamps blinked on and off twice then went out. I tried cycling the switch on and off but they would not turn on. Shortly after switching to high beams, these too turned off. This has happened numerous times since 9/12/14.

The headlights of the Jeep sporadically go off. You just never know when they will work. Sometimes when you start the car up they won't work, but the most dangerous is when they go off when you are driving at night and have no idea that they have shut off. The high beams won't work when this happens, but the parking and fog lights can be used as some kind of back up.

Driving on a 4 lane roadway at 4 am, speed was 55 mph when the headlights flashed 4 times and then stayed off. Since this first occurence this has randomly happened. A maintenance visit to the local Jeep dealer in manassas, va indicates a faulty total integrated power control module (tipm) failure.

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.

The contact owns a 2010 Jeep Wrangler. The contact stated that the headlight cover dislodged from the vehicle. The light would bounce up and down while driving, causing limited illumination of the roadway ahead. The dealer diagnosed that the contact would need to replace the bracket which would connect the casing to the vehicle. The manufacturer was notified of the failure yet the vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 11,182 and the current mileage was 11,482.
