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.

problem #2

Feb 102010

Explorer XLT AWD 5.0L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 145,000 miles


The door ajar light stays on constantly and NEVER goes off. It was like this when I bought it and its not a big deal but I hate looking at my dash and seeing the red light bc it makes me think something is wrong until I realize its the door ajar light and not something else. I have tried closing all the doors and it didn't help and I also sprayed WD40 on all the closing mechanisms to maybe unstick them but it still stays on. I don't have a problem with the door buzzer though.
