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.

problem #6

Jul 052012

Windstar 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,341 miles

The battery died so I replaced it and I found the alternator not charging so I replaced it as well. The speedometer and odometer are displaying half of actual which was the case before the battery died.

Update from Jul 16, 2012: Odometer reads half of actual distance eg: travel 20 miles actual, odometer records 10 miles. Speedometer shows 25 mph while traveling 55 mph.

Also before I replaced the battery and the alternator these things occurred, plus the door locks were opening and closing while driving.

I'm driving my car and all of a sudden the speedometer and odometer go out at same time then the (abs) light comes on and stays there!!!! My parents bought this for us as a gift for the baby because our accent is too small for 3 kids!!! i need to find someone to fix the darn thing at least my dad had enough foresight to buy us an after market warranty... except i can't find anyone to fix electrical problems in Vegas using the warranty yet!!!!
