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.

Occasionally the headlights go out while driving. They will come back on after a while but there is no rhyme or reason as to when they will go off or come back on. So far it has happened to me about once a week. It is hard to check what is causing the problem but investigation has shown that numerous cars have been fixed by replacing the lighting control module. However it is quite expensive and Ford refuses to recognize the severity of the problem. The running lights stay on but the headlights go out. I almost hit a parked car at forty M.P.H.
