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 092008

Excursion 4WD 10-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles


Cruise control would not engage. Icon on dash just flashed when" set "was depressed. I tried all cruise switches to verify if it was a stuck switch. Pressing cruise" on "and "coast" switches on steering wheel causes horn to sound. Dealer said the brake switch was the cause due to a missing ground buss. The vehicle uses ground switching so the horn should be on all the time. The horn still sounds when switches are depressed. I feel cause is in the steering wheel hub and am concerned this can effect the air bag deployment.
