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.

Front end collision into the rear of another truck. Whole front end damaged through radiator, hood, headlights, bumpers etc. Airbag never deployed and upon return of vehicle after repairs, I am now getting a code 42 that the sensor is bad and after research find out there is a recall on this but for the opposite reason but also now understand there are corrosion issues with the connection of the sensor also. Hope this helps. Please advise what to do, will Ford fix this whole problem and replace with a new sensor and the wire chaffing problem? thank you in advance!

The contact owns a 2005 Ford F150. The contact stated that the headlights became inoperable while driving 55 mph. The contact stated that he was driving with the low beams activated when they failed and never re-illuminated. The dealer was notified who advised that wither the multi-switch or the module under the dashboard would need replacing. There were no recalls for the failure. The manufacturer was not notified.

Light bulb attached to transmission placement window in console, detaches and burns other wires and what ever else it can inside console, then burns through side of console releasing smoke into cab of vehicle, in the end you have an extra light sticking out the side of the console between the drivers seat.
