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.

2006 Ford F-150 Owner Comments

problem #9

The driver's side window regulator on my 2006 Ford F150 has broken three times, I was able to get two replaced under warranty, but the third time happened this last month, I am replacing it today. I believe from my experience, and from thousands of forum entries citing the same thing, that Ford should recall this part. This part is going to cost me approximately $400 to repair.

The passenger in my vehicle tried rolling up the window while at a stoplight and it would not go up. The window switch will work to roll the window down but not to roll it up. After approximately 11 months the drivers side window is doing the same thing, will go down but not up. With the window stuck in the down position, my vehicle is now exposed to the elements, rain particularly, and I fear the water from the rain is going to affect the rest of my door switches, and possibly ruin the leather seats and the power functions for my seats as well. It is a distraction and a hazard to have to drive with the window down constantly.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford F150. The contact stated that all four window regulators failed and as a result, she was unable to open or close the window. After several attempts, the window would open however, it would fail to close. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where all four window switches were replaced.

Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). Power windows for the F-150 not working properly. I have many friends who own this type of truck and they are complaining of the same thing. And the average fix it price is $500. [xxx]

Window fell down while driving on the freeway. Loud noise as window fell inside the door I almost crashed. Very close call. I have talked to many owners of this same model, different years, all report the same problem.

problem #2

  • 32,000 miles
Failure of the drivers side power window switch. Over a matter of months, the operation of the switch deteriorated. Initially, when the drivers door window switch was pressed to close, the window would hesitate. This hesitation became worse until the window would not close without repeated attempts to close the window. At times, the window had to remain open overnight and at some point in time, the close button would work again. There was no clear indicator to a condition that would initiate this problem, nor was there any procedure to return the switch to operation (aside from repeated attempts to close the window. The matter was brought top the attention of Ford during the full warranty period and the drivers door window switch assembly replaced. This repair appears to have resolved the problem (it has not occurred since). This incident is being reported after learning of numerous others who have experienced this failure. These conversations were with others of F-150 and other Ford vehicles of the 2005-2006 era. A high percentage have experienced this problem. If the failure occurred under the 3yr/36,000 mile warranty, switches were normally replaced with no cost to the vehicle owner. However, M large portion of people have experienced this condition shortly beyond the warranty period and have had to live with the defective switch or pay for replacement. The large number of people who have experienced this failure is indicative of a defect in the switch assembly.

Drivers side window will not go up about 75% of the time. I took the truck to a Ford dealer to be checked and they said the electrical box in the door needed to be replaced and it was not under warranty. When the gentleman went to check the price for the part he said he could not order it because they were out of stock due to the high demand for the part. He also stated that since the part was unavailable it lead him to believe there is a big problem with windows right now. Personally, I know there is a problem because I know three other people who own Ford and they have problems too. My mother-in-law has a Ford Explorer which had the same problem two years ago, thankfully she was able to get it fixed through a recall. We feel that a vehicle that is two years old should not be having such a problem. Please investigate the problem for all Ford vehicles, not just the F150, and you will see a huge problem. We feel it is time for a recall.
