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.

  • miles
2005 Ford crown vic approx 85,000 miles, climate control vent duct controller send all vent functions through defrost vents (A/C, floor, vent, etc). Problem seems to shift with acceleration/deceleration. For example, when using A/C, if accelerating the cool air blows through the defrost vents and not the regular A/C vents. But when braking, the vent will switch down to the A/C ducts.
