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.

1999 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

A few weeks ago, my AC and heater only started working on high. I investigated online and found that it is most likely the blower motor resistor. I opened the dashboard to investigate and found an unacceptable level of corrosion everywhere. Now, I am finding that MANY Taurus owners are reporting problems with the seal. I am pissed beyond belief because I have had several electrical problems in the past and had Ford repair under warranty. Now that it is out of warranty, I am finding that it has likely leaked all this time and they should have found the leak and fixed it then. Now, it is my problem and I have to deal with it. Thanks Ford. I believe it is the blower motor resistor this time.
