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.

seems to be a rather common problem with explorers and sport tracs. My dealer has already replaced it once and the one he put in is worse than the first one. My brother in law had same problem with F-150 and discovered the bad solder connection on the circuit board after re soldering it has worked for for 5 years.
