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.

Jeep randomly stalls and engine dies while driving. Jeep has replaced O2 sensor, PCM and tipm. Problem is still occurring. Very dangerous to drive not knowing when the engine will quit working. Problem started occurring around 45000 miles and is still occurring

On 6 separate occasions, the electronic stability control light came on, which disables the cruise control. The Jeep has 42,000 miles, and it started happening at about 39,000 miles. It happened at various speeds between 30 mph and 65 mph, on moderately bumpy roads, however, not bumpy enough to be described as outside of the normal. Took it into the Jeep dealership, and they said it was working properly, but it never happened before 39,000 miles of driving the same roads under the same conditions.

Jeep has been stalling for 7 months. Been in shop 9 times. Jeep stalls going at different spends, while stopped, moving at idle in forward or reverse. Jeep will not start unless terminal on battery removed or sits for awhile. Transmission fails to engage occasionally in reverse or drive after stalling. Last program download appears to be a fault with the tipm (totally intergrated power module). Ptm and tpm changed out due to different readings in downloads. Mechanic believes now, that the tipm is faulty. Jeep has stalled up to 5 & 6 times on some days.

A week ago I noticed when I started the Jeep in the morning the air bag and the traction control lights on the dash came on. The cruise control quit working along with the radio controls on the steering wheel. The Jeep is parked on the street. I disconnected the battery for about 30 min. I reconnected the battery and started it up. The air bags and traction control lights were still on in the dash. The steering controls do not work. The Jeep was parked in front of my house on the street.

As I begin to pull into heavy traffic, I hear and see the check engine light warning along with the skid control light illuminating. The car then stalls leaving me sitting in 70 mph traffic. The vehicle starts back up but has a noticeable loss of power. This loss of power continued until I got home. When I finally get home I use a code reader which indicated it was a camshaft position sensor. Code P0344. This could have been a much worse incident as there were no mechanical issues leading up to this.

2013 Jeep Wrangler. Consumer writes in regards to vehicle electrical problems. The consumer stated when a tone sounded, the brake light, ABS and stability lights illuminated. Also the speedometer and tachometer needles went to zero, and the cruise control shut off, slowing the vehicle down instantly. The stability and brake switch were replaced.
