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 #1

Jun 152012


  • 2,000 miles


Recurring event: Rear lights, turn signals and brake lights stop working. Some or all may fail at any given time. Does not seem to be associated with any weather related condition. Vehicle placed in two different dealership repair facilities with multiple 'fixes' being made. None of those repairs has worked as a permanent fix. The rear lights go out without notice on panel warning systems. Extremely hazardous at night, in unfavorable weather conditions, and with trailer tow. With no rear lights the truck cannot be seen by other approaching drivers and no indication of stopping or turning can be detected. Vehicle has been in dealer repair facilities eight times and the service people say they cannot determine what the problem is and one repair facility stated it is a problem they have seen on other same year model trucks. Ford has been contacted and the only 'help' offered is to continue to take truck to shop each time and let them 'reset' the system. Truck is too heavy for coverage under lemon law. This 'fix' is a temporary band-aid. It works for a limited amount of time then goes out without warning again. The lights can be checked for operation before driving, but once driving they go out without any warnings or notifications. Truck purchased new from dealer.
