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.

The truck has malfunctioning climate controlled-massaging seats. The climate control does not work on the seats at all. My dealership looked it over today and confirmed that it was not working but then after two service reps could not find the problem they decided that since the truck has the massaging feature that the climate control must be disabled and will not work! I accepted this answer for a while and then decided that this is surely not the case or why else would the sales sheets say "climate controlled massaging seats"; not "climate controlled or massaging seats"? well I called the Ford support phone number and after much deliberation the representative told me that I should go to another dealership! I have since learned that this is a common issue to some degree on many year/model of Ford trucks. Considering that I just traded a 2014 Ford raptor for this truck and the climate controlled seats worked (although not considerably well) on it, I am very disappointed. The dealership that I purchased the truck from did not acknowledge this as being a problem but just a simple internet search yields thousands of complaints! the problem is so severe that when seat cooling is selected, after 10 minutes, the front seats reach even hotter temperatures rather than cooler. Ford seems to be unwilling to take care of this problem but continues to advertise the feature and selling their trucks as if nothing is wrong! something needs to be done about this issue.

The F150 has climate controlled seat that all the occupants in the front two seats are able to use to heat or cool the seating surface. On my model the seat back of the system is not functioning properly in the cooling mode. After as little as 10 min of use the seat back goes from ambient temperature to uncomfortably warm. When reaching behind the seat and placing a hand on the back of the seat back there is a very hot section where the thermal electronic device is located. This is a safety hazard for anyone reaching into the map pocket or any adult or child who touches the back of the seat. While researching this issue online there have been owners who have used thermal imaging and temperature detection devices who have measured temperature from 115-130 degrees on the back seat. Some even complain they have measured 150 degress. At that temperature a child could easily suffer severe burns to ther person. I do not have a device to measure temperature to get the exact number but it is uncomfortable to leave my hand on the area of the seat where the ted is located for any length of time.

Front seat back cooling system (ted) is malfunctioning. When seat cooling is selected, after 30 minutes, the back of the front seats reach extreme temperatures, resulting in burning everyone that touches the back of the front seats. I've measure the temperatures, at the top of the map pocket, at over 115 degrees, when ambient temperatures were at 75 degrees. When ambient temperatures rise above 90 degrees, the front seat back temperature can reach up to 150 degrees or more!

The cooled seat function on the 2015 is a very poor design and it causes extreme heat to the back of the seat while the bottom of the seat somewhat cools. I feel this is a fire danger to anything in the seat back pocket.

Front seat cooling system, back of both the driver and passenger seats, is not working. When cooling is selected the back seat does not cool rather after 10-15 mins. It warms up. I have read the temp. With a gun and found it to be between 115 and 150 degrees at the back of the seat right above the map pocket at a ambient temp. Of 75 degrees. My dealers answer to the issue was Ford states its working as designed. I am not using the cooling function with anything in the back for fear or how hot it gets and a fire. Ford has not given a fix for the problem. I am one of many. It is in many forums about this issue.

Front seat back cooling system (ted) is malfunctioning. When seat cooling is selected, after 5-10 minutes the back of the front seats reach extreme temperatures. I am concerned that the extreme temperatures could pose a potential burn hazard or cause an electrical fire. I have not personally measured the temperature of the seats but while researching the problem I came across a forum where individuals with thermal cameras and inferred thermometers have measured the temperatures of the seat. Several of the results were: At the top of the map pocket, at over 115 degrees, when ambient temperatures were at 75 degrees. When ambient temperatures rise above 90 degrees, the front seat back temperature can reach up to 150 degrees or more! numerous people are having this problem and Ford has not made any public announcement that there is a potential problem with the cooled seats. You can reference the forum that I got this information from at the web address: www.F150forum.com/F118/coolin...operly-304154/
