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.

Taurus SE/SVG

  • Automatic transmission

Vehicle had an intermittent starting problem when the theft lamp would blink quickly. Used to have friend jump car which would override the problem and allow starting. Car would start again as long as I didn't let it cool off. Now, jump doesn't help either.Now lamp flashes whenever I try to start the car. I need this car for work, and am between a rock and a hard place. HELP!!!!!!
