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.

2004 Ford Taurus Owner Comments

problem #1

Taurus FWD

  • Automatic transmission

When it rains, the windshield wipers turn on when they want, I had people look at it when it isn't raining and they work. BUT, if it rains or snows, they won't turn on. I keep turning the switch and sometimes it starts. It's really scary trying to drive home without them..Anybody else having this problem? Any advice? I need help and can't afford a mechanic..HELP

Update from Nov 10, 2014: Well, the dealer said it would cost me 300 buck to have my wind shield wipers fixed..My husband went on line and found out the car have relay fuses, he switched the fast fuse to the regular speed fuse and know they work.. I need a new fuse but that's it..So, if you have a problem, check the fuses before taking it in to the dealer..
