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.

2003 Ford Ranger Owner Comments

problem #2

Mar 182015

Ranger LX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 108,600 miles


The interior dome light stays on though the doors are firmly closed and the open door message on the dash is off and the dome light switch is set to off and the engine is off.

The two small white lights on the ends of the brake light above the rear window also stay on now. That just started up yesterday--3/24/2015. Again, that's with EVERYTHING turned off and the doors firmly closed.

Dome light and door ajar light stays on when doors are shut when I am driving. When I shut off the ignition, the dome stays on but the door ajar light turns off. What can I do?
