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.

Explorer Sport Trac LX 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission

The lights that illuminate the instrument cluster in the dash have slowly begun to fade out from left to right, like a virus working its way across the instruments. It started with most of the temperature gauge and about 3/4 of the fuel gauge. Then a little more went out into the RPM gauge and then the cruise control lights on the left side of the steering wheel went dark. Currently it has consumed the entire left side of the instrument cluster to the top edge of the RPM gauge around 5000 RPM's. It just keeps growing. HELP
