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.

1999 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

i just sent this to ford and advise anyone else experiencing problems similar to do the same , website att bottom

I have a 1999 Ford Expedition and it seems that every time we have a good hard rain it it messes up, the lights will come on by themselves, it tries to start on its own, no key, 4x4 light and rear wiper light flashes on and off, i have searched online and found several other complaints similar to this , so it would seem that there is a factory default , some complaints stated that there is actually a leak in the windshield that causes the computer to get wet and malfunction, whatever the case this is not normal and ford needs to investigate and do something before someones vehicle shorts out and starts a fire. i as i am sure many others have small children who ride in these cars and am concerned about the safety, but as many other owners most likely I can not afford another vehicle, but if I did it would not be a ford,

I would like to know how ford plans to handle this matter, or maybe the media and some attorney,s could handle it better.

Starter stays engaged only in cold weather. Pull the key, starter keeps on crankin'. Leave it running, starter disengages after extended time. Took it to the shop, they "started vehicle many times--unable to duplicate". Told them it only happens in cold weather, it was warm when at shop. They did NO diagnostic of any kind. This was September 25,2006.
