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.

Radio is not stock, so not a Ford problem. However, radio and/or horn do not work intermittently - either separately or jointly. Have checked all the fuses, and there do not appear to fuses that are faulty. Other than brakes, a horn is basically a SAFETY feature that needs to work at all times to warn other drivers (snoozing, or otherwise NOT ALERT) of other nearby cars! In my area, I consider brakes AND a reliable horn to be necessities to avoid becoming an external "accessory" to someone else's vehicle, or an addendum to someone else's braking system.
