    I will most certainly scan in my copy, gota find it first

    Im really interested what the fix is going to be, if its a simple fix Im going to see if I can just pick up the part and do it myself.

    I had the recall done on my truck 2 years ago...

    The NHSTA or whatever you guys call them did an investigation on the issue and closed it as 'dealers to replace part if a user complains'.. I was in the middle of a vacation including a 5500km round trip down to Portland and back when it decided to act up on the I5 in rush hour while towing my travel trailer.


    NHTSA Linky - Defect Investigations Results | Safercar.gov | NHTSA

    They must have had enough people complain about it to do the right thing and do a full out recall.. I'm happy with that as this could be a very bad thing in the wrong situation.

    At first I thought my truck was acting up because I had just installed some custom electronics and shit.

    I got the same thing the other day. It's only for the '06 1500s and 2500s. It's not really a recall, it just states that your factory warranty for the switch has been extended to 10yrs or 150k mi, whichever comes first. Funny thing is my '06 has never acted up. But, my '02 did it multiple times and my moms '06 Durango did it a few times too.
