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.

F-150 8-cyl

The 4 wheel drive failed to disengage. The truck has been serviced by several dealerships for this issue. They all gave different solutions to solve the problem, but none of the solutions related to what was in the owner's manual. The vehicle did not disengage or shift out of 4X4 into 4X2 under a load or in a bind. The brakes pushed to the drivers side and a made noise, and the A/C didn't switch from defrost to vent due to the radio and bezel vacuum to the A/C system. The A/C selector switch was replaced.
