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.

My 2003 F-150 V8, 4.6L 2wd truck received water damage to the GEM (generic electronic module) causing the windshield wipers to stop working while driving to work on a foggy/dew morning after a rainstorm. The water damage was due to a leak on the loose windshield that caused water to run directly to the fusebox & GEM that controls all electronics in the vehicle. After looking seeking an answer for this problem, I found that at lease a hundred others have had the same windshield leak in the '97-'03 F series vehicles. The GEM could and has caused vehicles to shut off and on and have lights go off and on at a random time if it received water damage. It is very dangerous and needs to be fixed immediately. The windshield is a common problem and many others have suffered from the same problem as me. Thank you for your time.

The contact owns a 2003 Ford F-150. The contact stated that while making a right turn, the turn signal would not activate until the steering wheel was raised into a higher position. As a result, the vehicle was nearly involved in a crash after the contact almost lost control while turning. The contact also stated that the wiring in the signal lever was not connected to the steering column whenever the column was shifted. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and stated there were no related recalls. The failure mileage was 145,000.

My Ford F150 super crew has a recurring problem in that it continuously blows a certain 5 amp fuse. This fuse disables the automatic lights, the automatic door locks and the overdrive system. I took the truck to the local Ford dealership. They replaced the fuse and charged me $52.50. They did not fix anything. I found an identical complaint on your website from Nov 30, 2008.
