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.

2001 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012010


  • 165,000 miles


The contact owns a 2001 Ford Ranger. The contact stated that the tail, hazard, and brake lights, as well as the turn signals were malfunctioning. The vehicle was taken to an independent repair shop where they were unable to diagnose the failure, but stated that it could be related to a defective switch. All of the light bulbs were replaced as a temporary solution. The failure continued. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure, but offered no assistance because the vehicle was not included in any recalls. The failure mileage was 165,000 and current mileage was 180,000.
