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.

Vehicle sold and factory equipped with trailering package which includes factory trailer wiring. Turn signals & hazard flashers do not flash in accordance w/ 49cfr, 571.108 when trailer attached to factory wiring. Dealer has found electronic flasher from Ford is not sufficient to operate with trailer. Flasher is rated as "2/4 flasher" (2 turn/4 hazard lamps). Ford does not offer heavy duty flasher sufficient to operate vehicle & trailer turn / flasher lamps. No aftermarket manufacturer has been found that makes a flasher unit that will operate in this vehicle. Standard "heavy duty" flashers blow all turn / flasher / brake light fuses. Creates extreme danger as turn signals and hazard flashers fail or are insufficient to operate in traffic with trailer attached. Only remedy is to convert trailer lamps to led lamps. Cost $150 - $250 per trailer.
