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.

2005 Ford Mustang Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 272005

Mustang 8-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 6,287 miles


Under normal driving conditions the digital dispay for audio system, digital display for odometer and gauge backlight went black, resulting in reduced ability to see gauges and inability to see odometer and audio system display. If this occurred at night, there would be zero ability to determine driving speed and other conditions of the vehicle as displayed on the gauges. Checked fuse box located under vehicle hood and found that multiple fuses were not seated properly. Additional owner of same model and year experienced same problem. Checked new stock at dealer lot and found same problem.
