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.

My 2003 Expedition drivers door ajar light stays on even when the door is closed. The problem is intermittent but is definitely annoying. I fixed it, at least temporarily, by spraying WD-40 in the locking mechanism on the door. Spray it in, open and close a couple times and the problem goes away.

Just can't figure out what is causing the problem or which door the problem resides in. Problem caused the lights to stay on and drain the battery causing my wife and daughter to be stranded.
