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.

2002 Ford Excursion Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 112007

Excursion 4WD Diesel

  • Automatic transmission
  • 103,000 miles


Kept having to replace fuse #45 on my 2002 Ford Excursion limited diesel 4X4. After putting into any gear, go to give it fuel it would nt do anything. Researched the internet and found that there was others with Ford truck 1999-2003 having same problem and read what they did to fix it. Apparently in the gear shift, there are 3 very short wires that were fraying due to be pinched. So since it was not under warranty we had to have the steering box cover removed and there it was, the wires were almost completely frayed. They were fixed and another fuse was installed only to find out that the truck would not do anything. Had to have it towed to a dealership and spent $600 on a new fuse box since the original one was fried due to the frayed wires. I drive 60 miles one way to work everyday and have 2 little girls and this could have caused a fire and believe me, Ford would have been in big trouble. So if others are having the very same problem, why has there not been a recall. It has been noted on the internet in various public forums. Compensation for me and others with an addition to a recall would be the solution and greatly appreciated before this causes deaths.
