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.

problem #2

Expedition LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 204,705 miles


We don't know where to start, hate to go to dealership because of cost. The door code stopped working a while back and then sometimes we were getting a light saying door ajar, yet all doors were closed and we couldn't lock door. Last Monday we couldn't start the car battery was dead. We have narrowed it down to not being the battery or alternator. Could it be a fuse?

Expedition EB 5.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 68,500 miles

Starting the vehicle after sitting for a week has been an on going problem. The car shop I take it to has replaced the battery 4 times at no additional cost to me. I am a musician. My Expedition to the hilt. Luckily it has not been a problem after playing a gig. It seems to be fine after driving. I'm frustrated because the problem has not been fixed. We are now trying an experiment. Taking the fuse out for the radio so there won't be as much draw on the battery. Please NO RADIO! I can't believe that would help at all. I'm not into NRing my vehicle. That's BS. Find the problem and fix the damn thing!
