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.

1998 Ford Contour Owner Comments

problem #2

Feb 042008

Contour LX 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 160,640 miles


My air bag light blinks 4 times then a short pause then 2 times. It does this each and every time I think it may be a code it never changes. I am trying to access information about this as I live on a very tight budget and cannot afford the expense of taking this to a dealer. I have someone in my family that works on their personal cars and I am trying to find out if this is a code and how to fix it. I have 2 children and I would hate to think of what would happen if we got into a crash and our airbags did not deploy. My car has to be inspected the end of February and I'm not quite sure what to do.
