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

Mustang 40th Anniversary/Pony Pkg 3.9L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 70,000 miles


I was in a front end collision and that is when my ABS light issues started. For the first 6 months to a year, the light would come on randomly (of course, it would never turn on when I took it to a repair shop)... Now the light stays on constantly, but my braking ability doesn't seem to be affected. The shop said I would have to replace the car's computer... For an 11 year old car, that just doesn't seem like a good investment.

Mustang 4.6L

  • Manual transmission
  • 69,000 miles

Was eating lunch and came out to my car and started the engine. The ABS and traction light came on for about a minute. Then the TRaction control light went out, but the ABS light stayed on for about 10 minutes while driving. Then suddenly turned off by iutself. I wonder if this is a common issue or if I have a ghost in the machine?
