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.

Chrysler designed the power distribution block cover to hold water and retain moisture. This causes the connections to corrode and fail leading to failure of critical, electrically-operated, safety systems including the airbag safety restraint system and the anti-lock braking system. Chrysler has been aware of the error and redesigned the power distribution box. However, they did not recall and offer to replace the failed component.

We have a 98 Plymouth Grand Voyager we have owned it 5-6 years. For about the last 2 years sometimes the brake pedal pulls down on its own and sticks for a few moments. It will do this when your foot is on the pedal and not pressing down at all, but it also does it when your foot is not over the pedal at all! I could be going 45 mph and it will pull down on its own and come back up in a few seconds. It is an very occasional problem so we never know when it will happen, unfortunately it has not done it while at the mechanics. We have had it looked at several times and worked on 3 times and they can't find the problem. I am very concerned this could be dangerous but we can't seem to find the problem.
