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.

problem #2

  • 65,000 miles


"steering column control module" sccm (Ford P/N 3F944) plastic body broke, allowing the "multifunction switch" (Ford P/N 13K359) to separate from its electrical connector and become inoperable. The sccm plastic body is quite flimsy and the plastic is brittle - instead of just breaking, it shattered like glass. This failure occurred at night during a rainstorm 3-4-16. Had just exited onto an urban arterial from a freeway. Instantly the wipers, turn signals, and high beam became inoperable. Very dangerous driving home (1 mile from the event). Next day I was amazed at how extensively the plastic shattered, having no recall of treating it harshly - just using the device in the normal fashion.

The contact owns a 2011 Ford F-250. The contact stated that the vehicle was started and sat idle for ten minutes when he heard a loud explosion. The contact then discovered that the rear window glass had fallen from the vehicle and shattered. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The dealer took pictures of the shattered glass and sent them to the manufacturer. Approximately two weeks later, he was advised that they would cover a percentage of the repairs to the rear window. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileages were approximately 8,100. The VIN was unavailable.
