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.

Ford Explorer 2007 eb. Tire light would come on. Had Ford dealer check. Adjusted air pressure. Continued to occur. Dealer would try to retrain sensors. Never helped. Said they think it might have something to do with an aftermarket charger for the cell phone affecting the computer. They said it is happening in a lot of cars. Problem continued after sensor retrained even if phone had not been plugged in. New tires installed Nov. 2012 at sam's. they made a notation on the invoice about sensor showing fault. Went several times to dealer and they would retrain sensors. Never helped. Would start again. Finally in Oct 2013 asked dealer to check all four sensors for cracks or damage. They broke down tires, inspected TPMS and no cracks found. Retrained sensors again. Nothing they have tried has stopped the problem. Sometimes now it will say tire sensor fault then change to tire monitor fault. I just hit the reset button until the next time it does it, which is usually just a little farther down the road. Light turns off when engine is turned off, but does it again the next time I'm on the road. Ready to just have the sensor disconnected. Frustrating.

Noticed water while raining was coming from the lighting/heating panel at top-roof panel that controls heating, air and lights after entering the vehicle. Water continued to leak into the vehicle until the rain stopped, then lights inside the truck came on while driving at night which caused driver to swerve from lights coming on without warning. As of this date, truck is in body shop for repairs of water leak through the lighting/heating control switches. Light switch had to be set to off until can be fixed or lights now continue to come on randomly when driving and continues to leak whenever it rains. Also, note this started after the heavy rains of hurricane sandy. Have owned other SUVS by other makers and never had anything like this to happen!
