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 #4

Explorer Sport Trac 4.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 156,000 miles


I was driving back from a vacation in Tucson when I cracked all the windows during a stop for breakfast. It was 110 degrees outside so when I returned to the car, started the engine, and cranked the a/c, it was a shock that the driver's side window would not move. In fact, it makes a fast clicking noise similar to the noise that occurs when the battery is dead. I drove from Tucson to Chandler and then to Glendale with my a/c on and the horrific noise of wind rushing in my window.

When pressing turning the button to make the rear window go down it works, while pressing it to raise to nearly the top, leaving a 1 inch opening it works. When turning the rear window button to completely close it, it does not work at all.
