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.

The contact owns a 2006 Ford Ranger. The contact stated that the windshield wiper works intermittently. When it rains, the wipers will not activate. The manufacturer stated that the VIN was not included in recall number 05S40. The dealer was unable to diagnose the cause of the failure and stated that the wipers were working normally. The current mileage was 47,000 and failure mileage was 10,000.

I was driving to work the day after a snowstorm in our area. Suddenly, the windshield wipers stopped functioning. I asked the service people at my local Ford dealer about this problem. They told me that ice probably accumulated in the vent in front of my windshield and I should pour hot water into the vent to thaw the ice. I can't do this whenever it snows and I'm on the highway.
