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 F150 crewcab, the interior light does not shut off which causes the doors not to lock. This is a security problem for my wife. After calling Ford to report this problem they couldnt help me. Also, a problem in the 1995 Ford Ranger. But the part were very expensive.
