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 #2

F-150 5.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 89,000 miles


Apparently Ford put a resistor by the motor to protect the motor in the event the lock lever is held down and you try to unlock the door (child holding down lever). I found a website that indicated that you need to remove this resistor and take some aluminum foil, short the resistor and place back in. (In other words, foil the safety circuit).

Door locks stop working including the remotes. Doors would not unlock with the button or with the remotes that came with the truck.
