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.

2001 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition (eddie bauer). The truck is experiencing erratic electronic problems such as dying driving down the road, electric functions turning on and off while vehicle is unattended, security light flashing, mileage indicator has lines through it, radio turing on and off, blower turning on and off, lights acting on their own, etc. The failure to run and dying unexpectedly has caused near death accidents as I pull onto the roadway from a cross street. The vehicle has been taken to Ford and they explained that the problem originated from a leaking windshield which caused the GEM module and fuse box to corrode. After fixing the windshield, GEM module, and fuse box, the problems persisted. I am concerned that the electrical problems will cause a fire due to the vehicle turning things on and off by itself.

There was a heavy rain the Expedition was parked outside. There was water on the floor mat. The headlights, windshield wipers, radio worked when the Expedition was off. Yet would not work when the car was on. The Expedition acted on its own. We took the Expedition to the dealership (jim keim Ford) where we purchased the vehicle. They charged us $893 to fix the fuse panel, sensor panel and reseal the entire front window. Then jim keim told me it would be another $200 if they broke the windsheild. I paid the money and have not had a problem since.
