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.

2003 Ford Crown Victoria Owner Comments

problem #1

Dec 022004

Crown Victoria 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 1,500 miles


The wiring harness for the horn as well as for inside dashboard and dome lights was defective upon purchase when new. The dashboard and dome lighting was corrected by the dealer on the first try with no more problems. However, the horn wiring, etc. Was repaired under warranty five different times and I have paid out of pocket for two more repairs. The problem is still not repaired. The horn starts blowing spontaneously without warning when the car is sitting and stopped and also when running. It blows continuously until getting under the hood and disconnecting the wiring.
