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.

Out of the blue the vehicle starts braking really hard, making loud banging noise, and shaking. It used to be once in a great while but now it's everytime I drive my vehicle, sometimes I can't stop my vehicle. This is very dangerous in traffic. I've taken to the Ford dealership multiple times yet my problem persists.

I was driving my 2007 Ford Expedition merging onto the freeway, the traction control light came on, the vehicle then started to shake and shutter, at that point the vehicle started to slow down and applied pressure to the brakes while it made a rattling sound, it lasted less than a minute but felt like an eternity. While I was afraid, I eased off the gas to let it slow down, then I tried to apply light pressure to the brakes to avoid being in a accident, then the vehicle picked up and responded as normal. This has happened on 3 occasions. Very frightening!!! my mileage is only at $44,900 when it first occurred my mileage was around 38,000 miles.

Ant-skid control light flashed three times, started to come to a stop. The 2007 Ford Expedition started to shake, truck speed up, and in a turn almost hit on coming car. Park the truck drive it for 30 miles nothing happen again. Looking on line for more people having this problem. Truck has 60,000 miles on it.

Leaving my neighborhood going 20-25 mph. Pavement was dry. Slight downhill incline. Put my foot on the brake. Brake started pulsating rapidly. Brake was resisting me pressing it by pushing my foot back up with pulsating action. Truck would not stop. Could have rear ended the car in front of me or went into a 4 lane highway. Pulled out onto the highway proceeded down another downhill incline about 45 mph. Put my foot on the brake to slow down again the brakes started pulsating and did not work. Had to stand on the brakes pushing against the brake rapid pulsation to get the truck slowed to turn into a parking lot. Traction control sliding car icon was flashing. Took to dealership 10/28/10. Dealer could not find any codes or malfunction. Dealer said the traction control system "rsc" resets itself periodically and will most likely do this again. This is a dangerous time for a bake or tracking control system to reset leaving one without brakes. Personally I don't believe their excuse. Ford has a seriously dangerous problem with the traction control system. Seems others have had this same problem reference to ODI id # 10220899. Also other complaints under the tracking control system ODI id# 10332619 and 10321582. Also from surfing the Ford enthusiast web site, and other web sites, a lot more people are having this problem and are not being reported.

While driving on dry pavement at approximately 25-35 mph the traction control light will start to illuminate randomly. Eventually staying on constantly. Pushing the traction control button will not turn off the light. Turning off the car and starting it again will make it go away. One time when this happened the ABS brakes engaged and the brakes had significantly reduced stopping power. I took it straight to the dealer and they did not see any error codes in the system.

The sliding car icon displays quite often, always on dry pavement. Usually for a short time during that time the brakes do not operate properly. They act as though the ABS have engaged themselves and make it almost impossible to stop. It has happened over 10 times to me in the 15 months that I have owned the truck. The dealer checked the problem and reported that there was nothing wrong.
