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.

Mustang 6-cyl

My 2012 Ford Mustang has been experiencing problems starting with the vehicle in the park position. All of the appropriate lights on the dash come on, but the car will not crank until I place the gear shift lever into the neutral position. This happens with the car parked on level ground and the emergency brakes applied and I have verified that the indicator shows the P for park. After, doing research I have found that Ford recalled some 2012/13 Mustangs for the transmission range sensor (trs) which was not properly calibrated affecting the starter interlock preventing the vehicle from starting until the transmission is placed in neutral. The recall was 12C23, NHTSA # 12V190000, my 2012 Mustang was not included in this recall, but I have the same problem with an improperly calibrated (trs).
