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.

Light bulb inside the automatic shifter came loose and was inside console, when I turned on my lights, I smelled plastic burning the light bulb burned a hole through the side of the console which in turn burned my hand, Ford dealership removed lightbulb, but was insisting I pay approx.$900 for repairs, which I refuse to do.

problem #1

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 18,452 miles
Was traveling back from declo Idaho from my fathers passing away, headed for boise Idaho at 11:00 pm, just passed jerome about two miles West the headlights and all other lights, interior and exterior went out at 75 mph on the freeway, in the vehicle I had my son 8 years old, my wife 40 years old, my mother 65 years old, and myself 44 years old we could have been killed by a merging or passing semi, but I quickly switched the headlight switch from auto to headlamp and the lights came back on, so I switched back to auto and we traveled 8 miles and the lights went out again, so, I repeated the same thing again by turning the switch back to headlamp, and the lights once again came back on. Then, I switched it back to auto again and they stayed on for about 8 to 10 miles and went out again. I switched them back and left the switch on headlamp and continued our trip home from declo no more problems with switch on headlamp mod. Also, I had fog lamps on this entire time which entailed pulling the headlight switch out to engage the fog lamps. Then a while later like a week I went to work at the airport at night graves. I got to work shut down the vehicle and put the keys on the floor as per pad to open vehicle, locked vehicle by pad and entered the building, about an hour or so later received a call from horizon employee that there was a vehicle with its lights on in the parking lot which was my vehicle. I returned to the vehicle and turned the headlamp switch from auto to headlamp and the lights went out when I locked the vehicle this time, and the same scenario happened a couple more times. I returned with the vehicle to lithia Ford of boise, and they held the vehicle over night and could not duplicate the problem, they have done this a couple times, and damaged the dashboard.
