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.

2002 Ford F-450 Owner Comments

problem #1

F-450 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 47,000 miles


I have a 2002, Ford F150, V-6, super cab, XLT, with 47000 miles. The ABS light came on. A Ford specialist has it diagnosed as a failed ABS computer module (which currently is a one piece module). It needs to be replaced with a new redesigned - module consisting of 3 parts -. this repair is very costly in parts - over $ $900. It does not affect regular braking and I assume that ABS - braking is disabled at this time (did not have to use it so far). It seems to me, that the ABS module is a bad design by Ford and therefore is not used again if it fails. If you get more reports like this please investigate and consider a recall initiative....thank you........klaus-peter meinhard.
