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.

My mechanic told me this is a common problem and Ford is well aware of it. He has the same problem with his later model Ford Explorer. My beef is: if Ford knows this is a common problem why don't they do a recall and fix the problem. This totally sucks... it's summer time, can't get air conditioner to cut on because the blend door in locked in, so all I get is heat.
