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.

1999 Ford Explorer Owner Comments

Explorer Eddie Bauer V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 157,000 miles


My son just bought himself a new to him truck. He has a 98 ford explorer but it blew its motor. Now he has bought a 99 ford explorer eddie bauer edition. Pretty truck for the most part. However his door ajar light stays when the doors are closed for sure. When he gets out the running board lights stay on. I am afraid this is going to kill his battery and leave him stranded somewhere. Can we pull a fuse that is just for the running board lites? Or can we fix this door ajar problem? Or how much will it cost to fix it?
