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.

1998 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

Power windows, front and back fail to operate. Drivers side will power down, but will not power up. Sometimes when I continuously operate the switch I can hear a clicking noise almost like something is not connecting. I have not yet taken it to a dealer to investigate because I am afraid the cost to 'fix' will be hugh. I have also had probles with the rear window wiper. It has never worked consistenly. I had it worked on one time, the dealer said it was locked up and fixed it. It worked about twice and has not worked since, that was about a year ago.

Interrior light fails to go off, even with vehicle running. On one instance, it began flashing. This was very distracting and dangerous as it was at night. I was only able to turn the interior light off by pulling the relay. This is a known issue with 1999-2000 Expedition, but apparently it affects 1998 vehicles as well.
