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.

Vehicle stalls at random times but most often when putting into reverse after sitting for a while. It has stalled while driving on major roads which could have been life threatening. The transmission also shifts very jerky at times for no real reason. The windshield wipers will come on randomly and usually seem tied to turn on the turn signals which happen to be on the other control knob. Lights will dim on nav/radio when windshield wipers are turned on. I would say there is an obvious electrical/computer issue that must be causing these things to happen. I have read hundreds of similar complaints.

The wipers come on intermittently with no input. Dealer would not fix because they could not recreate the issue. I believe this to be a problem with the tipm which controls many functions, including the airbag deployment. I'm concerned this malfunction is pointing to a larger underlying problem.

This is the 3rd time I have to replace the front windshield. Please, this is not of stones or pebbles, or chips. Each time the windshield cracked I either had the heater or air conditioner on.

Windshield wipers do not work. Fog lights do not work. Engine light and traction control lights come on and off at random. Dealer advised tipm is bad and must be replaced. Back log on replacement part and ship date is unknown.

Vehicle upon leaving a store, (just began to rain hard), the lights, wipers, cruise control, horn, and all functions on the steering wheel and left and right stalk stopped working. I assume the airbag is also not functional. No codes were registered in the vehicle for malfunction either. It has been a week and it is still not functioning. Possibly the clock spring which was recalled for 2007-2012, but 2013+ vehicles were excluded even though it is the same part used in the later model vehicles. Huge safety hazard!

Thus far in two years of service my vehicle has had four windshields replaced due to cracks. Cracks were from stones thrown from other vehicles while Jeep was being driven on highway. I have done some research and there are many, many other Jeep owners having the same problems. An installer from safelight auto glass told me the windshields are being made much lighter to help reduce the weight of the vehicle. There are so many windshields breaking the last I heard there were 4000 oem on back order. The only choice is to get a non oem installed to get the vehicle back on the road. Never in over 50 years of driving have I had four windshields broken from stones. Problem is costing insurance companies and individual's a lot of money.

The night before and morning of we had snow (01/26/2015-01/27/2015). I went out to my Jeep, cleaned it off, started it up, turned the defroster, put it in drive, and a 8 inch crack appeared on the lower part of the windshield. The crack started right above the windshield frame then ran parallel above the defrost vents.

I was driving my 2013 Jeep Wrangler and the wiper was iced up so I turned the defroster on high and my windshield cracked. There were no vehicles on the road with me and nothing hit my windshield. The crack is about 6 inches long running laterally toward the driver side and originated right above the right defroster vent the crack has no external ridge and appears to be related to a body stress issue. The temperature was 20 degrees and the issue occurred at 3:20 pm.

The contact owns a 2013 Jeep Wrangler. While driving approximately 60 mph, the temperature control knob was adjusted but it failed to respond and the vents began to blow extremely hot air. As a result, the windshield fractured and the cigarette lighter fuse blew out. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the temperature gauge, the windshield and the fuse needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. In addition, the contact stated that the check engine warning light illuminated and both the front driver and passenger side windows became inoperable. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The vehicle was included in NHTSA campaign number: 14V631000 (electrical system, visibility). The VIN was unavailable. The failure mileage was 13,000.

Wrangler 6-cyl

  • 2,500 miles
While driving from olympia wa. To marysville wa. I turned on the vehicle defroster and my windshield cracked. There is a small rock impact toward the bottom of the windshield and the crack extends from there. The nearest dealership is trying to sell me a $650 or more replacement windshield which will not crack and the Chrysler Corp will not return E-mails or assist over the phone. I believe they are using substandard windshields which will crack upon first impact where other vehicles will not. It poses as a safety issue limiting visibility due to not being able to run my defroster. When the defroster is run the crack expands. Being in the military I personally can not afford to replace my windshield every time something bounces off of it.
