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.

The brake pressure differential deactivation switch in my 2001 Ford Windstar is faulty. This may create a fire I was informed.

Brake pressure diff switch is leaking brake fluid on the wires under it and fuses and popping. Odometer, speedometer, A/C, ABS and O/D have all posted as not working.

I had new brakes put on my vehicle (all four brakes) and about two weeks after having them put on I noticed my brakes were wanting to fail. When I go to stop the brakes squeal really bad, are hard to get to stop like I am pushing on a brick (I have to put all my body weight into brakes to stop vehicle) and sometimes will keep rolling. I had the lines checked and nobody can find out what is going on with my vehicle.
