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.

I've read online several others that have had problems with the air bag light in the 2003 Ford Escape. My air bag light goes on and stays on about 2ce a week.

: the contact stated while driving various speeds at night, the instrument cluster panel lights failed to illuminate without warning. The vehicle was inspected by a dealer who determined the inner dash panel light that illuminated the instrument panel had shorted out and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was alerted.
