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.

1997 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

Ranger XLT

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I have a 1997 Ford Ranger XLT with about 100,000 miles on it. My problem is the instrument panel light. It just faded out over the coolant temperature gauge and the left-hand side of the speedometer gauge. Also when I turn the engine off the temperature gauge needle does not drop to zero until the engine is turned on again (when it is cold) What could the possible problem be and how can it be fixed?

Thank you for your help.
