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 #2

  • 60,000 miles


The brake pressure differential deactivation switch (scds) (2B264) located under the master cylinder (behind the air filter) developed a leak. This caused a short and a fuse trip, fuse #10 if the engine is on. This leak also caused brake fluid to wick down two wires to the ABS brake module (2C219). The fluid accumulated on the (always on) power connectors for the ABS brake system which are powered by fuses 101 and 102 and are both 40 amp. The fluid attracts moisture, road salt and leads to a fire when the fluid and moisture act as conductor between the hot leads and ground. Lights that stay on are: ABS, and brake, od flashes. Speedometer and odometer do not work. Also there is no heat or ac.

The ABS, brake, traction control lights come on and whenever it is warm out and the ABS and traction control do not work! this is a serious safety issue effecting stopping and steering control and should be a Ford safety recall. A faulty computer board expands and contracts causing malfunctions in the system.
