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

problem #1

Oct 012010

Expedition 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 61,000 miles


The Expedition attempts to start while running, switched on or key removed. The radio doesn't work and the windshield wipers do not work during this time. Problem occurs during or after major rain. After reading other complaints similar to mine I believe water must be entering the system at some point; however we have had no visual indication of water entering around the windshield or other areas. A local mechanic could not identify the problem after running water all over the car for an extended period of time. Thankfully the problem usually clears up after a short time. The windshield wipers not working during a rainstorm is very difficult to contend with and I always disconnect my starter relay on the firewall before leaving my car in the garage or anyplace else overnight unattended. Please advise.
