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.

Interior lights will not go out. This started happening out of nowhere one day. It is a serious safety issue for night driving. I was told it needs an instrument cluster panel and door latch with estimated cost of over $700. Ford said it's not under warranty. This vehicle was purchased new. I suspect this is a defect in many Excursion. I have been driving 38 years and have never experienced or heard of a problem of this nature. This is not a wear and tear issue. I believe it is a defective part. Also, power seat on drivers side has now stopped working.
