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.

On 1/1/09, 5/24/09, 5/29/09, 7/27/09, 8/15/090, inside panel lit up with "low tire pressure" message and tire was dangerously low within 15 minutes. These various events occurred on major highways with children in the vehicle and in heavy traffic, no safe place to pull over. Cracked tire stem valve each time.this presents a serious hazard to drivers who are alone, on dark highways, etc.

Front drivers side tire lost pressure, from 44lbs to 23lbs, I do not know the time duration. Warning light on dashboard alerted me. Corrected tire pressure and it is 6 pounds low again 7 days later. Ford dealer said they will not replace all stems only the one that is leaking.

Why driving the tire pressure indicator light will come on in the dash and the computer will state "tire pressure sensor fault." I have had it into the dealer four times and they have replaced the sensors and still having the same issue. The dealership has told me it has to do with a cell phone charger plugged into the cigarette lighter and setting off the tire pressure indicator on the dash, as well as sending a false signal to the computer. They state there is a Ford bulletin out on it but I can find anything on it. Updated 01-15-08. Updated
