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 2011 Ford Expedition. The contact stated that the key fob failed to unlock the doors intermittently. In addition, the contact stated that the key pad located on the driver side door failed to operate. As a result, the contact was unable to access the vehicle. The vehicle was taken to a dealer where it was diagnosed that the lock motor on all the doors failed and needed to be replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 44,977.

A fuse that has the driver side window, sunroof, compass, tv's and back window's connected to it keeps going out. We replaced the fuse ourselves for the first time and then it blew again in about 2 weeks. Then I took it to a Ford dealership that is closer to our home town and they replaced the fuse again and said they couldn't find anything that is causing it to keep blowing. About 2 weeks later it blows again. So I take it back to the same Ford dealer and they were hesitant to try to fix it again. They said it could possibly spark fire if they keep changing it out and they would take it back to the dealership where it came from. So we replace it again and it blows 1 week later this time. Remind you that we special ordered this vehicle in February 2011, it has 47,000 miles on it. So I take it to the dealership where we purchased it. They did a diagnostic test and can't find anything either. They want me to keep monitoring it (as if I haven't been doing that already) to see if I can tell when it blows. I told them there is nothing that my family or I am doing other than driving when it blows. They don't think it is necessary to take the car apart and try to fix the problem. I guess they want to wait until it's too late and catches fire.

We were driving on 95 when we heard a thud-type noise. We thought we had a flat tire, but then the vehicle would no longer accelerate. We were able to get off at the exit that was immediately upon us and safely pull off on the side of the road. We did not have any flat tires. The vehicle would still turn on and run (so we knew it wasn't the alternator), but it wouldn't accelerate. The Ford dealership informed us it was the mextronics electronic portion of the shift mechanism and valve body in the transmission. They said that this type of problem could not have been prevented and it does not happen often.
