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.

The contact owns a 2008 Ford Expedition el. The contact stated that the electronic stability control was shutting on and off. When the electronic stability control light came it caused the contact to lose the ability to stop the vehicle when the brakes were applied. The dealer inspected the vehicle and stated that they could not duplicate or diagnose the failure. The failure mileage was 40000 and the current mileage was 45000. Updated 02/09/11 the consumer stated he continues to experience traction control problems which renders the braking system ineffective. Updated 03/08/11

2008 Ford Expedition el I have been having an issue with my anti-lock braking system since I purchased my vehicle. My ABS light will start blinking on the dashboard for no apparent reason whether I am on wet or dry roads. When I go to apply the brakes, my truck will go into ABS mode causing the my car to stutter upon stopping. I have been to the dealer about 20 times as they have sealed my steering column stating that the sunlight is somehow hitting the sensor. That didn't work. They then removed the ABS module and about 3 weeks after that, the problem continued. It happens on occasion, but it is very dangerous when I am on the highway and have to apply the brakes as it doesn't allow me to stop quickly if I have to. It isn't a continuous problem, but when it occurs it scares the heck out of my family. I don't know what the issue is and Ford obviously doesn't either. I just need someone to find the problem. This has been happening for over a year.
