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.

2003 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

Oct 122005

Mustang 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 36,000 miles


The contact owns a 2003 Ford Mustang. The contact stated that the wiring that leads to the brake light switch constantly fails. While driving at various speeds, the cruise control would not deactivate when pressure was applied to the brakes. The contact also noticed that the brake lights do not illuminate and when parking the vehicle, he cannot shift the vehicle out of park. New terminal ends were placed on the switch; however, the wiring continues to fail. The repair usually lasts six months. The vehicle has not been taken to the dealer and the manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 36,000 and current mileage was 83,000.
