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.

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar SE. All at once my ABS and brake light came on. A week later the speedometer stopped working. Now the speedometer works for a fee days then quits. I took it to midas and they told me to take it to a dealer. They said there are no recalls.

The contact owns a 2001 Ford Windstar. He stated that the instrument panel failed. The vehicle was taken to his local mechanic; however, they found the part needed to make the repair could only be ordered by an authorized Ford dealer. No repairs were made to date. The failure and current mileages were unknown.
