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.

2003 Ford Expedition Owner Comments

problem #1

Expedition 4WD 8-cyl

The vehicle would randomly fail to start over a period of 2 months, usually in the morning. All lights, gauges, radio, and heater would work, but the engine would not crank. After turning the key 4-5 times, it would eventually start. One time, nothing worked and had to jump start the battery. I replaced the battery and 1 week later, it did not turn over again at all, but everything else was working. I let it sit, and tried it later in the day, of which it started right away. I took it to the dealer and they tested it. They had the problem happen twice on the first day and determined the cause to be the starter terminal wiring pigtail was corroded, and they replaced it with a new one.
