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.

Expedition 8-cyl

  • 51,120 miles
Driving down the highway at 65 mph in the left lane when the car lost all power. We were able to coast to the side of the highway because we were traveling at the rate of speed listed above with no power. This is extremely dangerous to someone in this position. As we attempted to see if we could figure out what had occurred an error appeared on the service display of service advance trac. A few minutes later we noticed the additional code of tire pressure monitor fault. We had to get the vehicle towed at this point. Not satisfied as the could be huge safety issue.

After engaging the 4X4 via the dashboard control knob the "service advance track" message was shown in the instrument cluster. The 4X4 was disengaged and the vehicle was then stopped. The indicator lights for the ABS, stability control and 4X4 were then illuminated on the instrument cluster. The vehicle was restarted and at this point all stability control, anti-lock brakes and other powertrain safety features were completely inoperable and/or disabled. The vehicle was serviced and a failure of the wheel speed sensor was noted.
