THE CONTACT OWNS A 2008 DODGE AVENGER. WHEN THE HEATER WAS ACTIVATED, HOT AIR BLEW OUT OF THE DRIVER'S SIDE VENT AND THE REST OF THE VENTS BLEW OUT COLD AIR.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

1/23/2019 - KIRKSVILLE, MO
THE HORN WILL RANDOMLY SOUND. IT MAY BE OPERATING ON CITY STREETS, ON THE HIGHWAY, PARKED, AND EVEN WHEN NOT RUNNING. THE HORN DOES NOT SOUND FROM THE STEERING WHEEL PAD WHICH IS A SAFETY CONCERN AND CAUSES A SAFETY INSPECTION FAILURE. THE HORN SOUNDS WHEN THE KEY FOB LOCK BUTTON IS PRESSED INTERMITTENTLY. THE HORN WHEN SOUNDING ON ITS OWN MAY SOUND ON AND OFF, OR ONE CONTINUOUS SOUND. WHEN TAKEN TO A MECHANIC IT WAS DETERMINED THE TIPM (TOTAL INTEGRATED POWER MODULE) IS FAILING IN MULTIPLE WAYS, AND IS THE CAUSE FOR THE HORN SOUNDING. THE TIPM IS KNOWN TO CAUSE WIPERS STOPPING, LIGHTS STOPPING, ETC AND POSES A VERY SERIOUS RISK. I WAS ASTOUNDED TO KNOW HOW FREQUENTLY THIS OCCURS AND YET NO ACTION HAS BEEN TAKEN.

VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL

I JUST BOUGHT MY 2008 AVENGER. EVERYTHING WORKED AS NORMAL UNTIL I WENT TO WARM UP MY CAR TODAY AND LATER REALIZED THAT THE PASSENGER SIDE IS ONLY BLOWING COLD AIR. I HAVE RESEARCHED AND FOUND HUNDREDS IF NOT THOUSANDS ARE HAVING THE EXACT ISSUE. THE ACTUATORS ARE FUNCTIONING. THE BLEND DOOR IS FINE. THE HEATER CORE ITSELF IS FINE DUE TO HOT AIR COMING FROM DRIVER SIDE ONLY. THIS CAN CAUSE A MORE ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS AND MALFUNCTIONS AND SHOULD BE RECALLED DUE TO POOR HEATING ABILITIES THUS LACK OF DEFROST DURING WINTER MONTHS. I HAVE A SMALL FRAME I'M ABLE TO LOOK OUT AFTER WINDSHIELD HAS BEEN DEFROSTING FOR OVER 20 MINUTES. THAT'S THE WORST PART. THE OTHER ISSUE IS MY CRUISE CONTROL QUIT WORKING ALSO TODAY WHILE GOING 75 MPH DOWN THE HIGHWAY. I WAS ALMOST REAR ENDED BECAUSE ONCE IT DISENGAGED, IT SLOWED DOWN TREMENDOUSLY. HAD I NOT BEEN QUICK AT ACCELERATING AGAIN, I WOULD BE PUTTING MY CAR IN THE SHOP FOR REAR END DAMAGE. WHETHER THEY ARE CONNECTED OR NOT, I DONT KNOW, BUT IT IS VERY STRANGE BOTH ISSUE AROUSE TODAY.
