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.

2002 Ford Windstar Owner Comments

problem #2

Nov 022008

Windstar Limited 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles


When the van is started the brake light is on indicating that the "emergency brake" is on when it is not. At this point, the brakes will make an awful screeching sound. You can active the emergency brake and then release and sometimes it takes care of the problem, other times it does not. However, once you start driving about 500 feet, the light will go off.
