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

May 132011

Focus ZX3

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles


On a 2003 Ford Focus ZX3, a small red blinking light is just to the right of the triangular Hazard Warning Light. My manual doesn't say what it is but it came on recently and won't stop blinking. Help! What is the red light for? Thank you. Laura Wilamowski

problem #1

Jul 272009

Focus LX 2.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 75,000 miles

I am trying to determine the solution to the problem. I believe that the problem is all electrical, maybe a relay. I don't believe that it is a fuse but all symptoms seem to be related. The blower motor doesn't work, nor do the wipers and it is stuck in park.
