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.

Windstar SE 6.0L

Gone are the days with the VCR/TV combo! We bought this Windstar when it was "prime" for the time! Wow a VCR?? Well it only made it about 3 years before it went out. Of course it was right before warranty, and nobody that "Ford" had authorized could even figure it out. So at my expense I took it to a accessory shop, that installs and repairs these things all the time. Yep it was gone, the VCR had literally died, and the TV had burnt out. Because its overhead, we had to replace the TV, with a TV/DVD combo (tapes are now obsolete) and I have left a empty console that held the VCR. What blew my mind is the the Ford mechanics couldn't even figure out a STOCK FORD problem!

The video monitor wont show picture while in full down position. When it is partially lowered you can see the images from the vhs player. I think it is a wiring issue but not sure how to remove the monitor to see if problem with wire??? Contacted Ford, but they only want to sell me a new vehicle! I just want to fix problem on the cheap for those long family trips.
