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

(reported on)

Windstar Sport 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 48,467 miles


The door ajar light stays on. Therefor I must be sure to turn off interior lights manually. Sometimes I can get it to turn off but only if the van is facing downhill. Even then i must open and close the door serveral times to get it to trun off (If I'm lucky). My neighbour 4 doors down has the same van with the same problem!!

The overhead dome lights in my Windstar, will automatically come on, no reason. I will be driving and the door open chime sounds, and the lights go on. After a while they will turn off, Just to turn on again. My Children have named the car "Chrisine"!!
