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.

The contact owns a 2005 Ford Crown Victoria. When the contact started the ignition it activated the the windshield washer fluid. Suddenly, the front windshield wipers were activated to clear any excess washer fluid; however, the windshield wipers were inoperative. There were several attempts before the windshield wipers became functional. The windshield wiper control selector failed to disengage the windshield wiper system until the engine was turned off. The failure occurred intermittently. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer on three separate occasions for the identical failures. The technician replaced the control switch twice and the motor on a separate occasion. The contact had concerns of the safety risk involved. The failure mileage was unknown. The current mileage was 171,000. Updated 10/21/09. Updated 10/20/09
