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.

My automobile keeps getting multiple emergency brake and ABS errors. The lights come on multiple times daily. Upon researching this problem it appears to be a wide spread issue with Ford Windstar 2001-2003. The issue appears to be a faulty brake system including the ABS system. Brake fluid leaks from a faulty sensor into electronic connectors causing the potential for fires. There are documented cases where this failure has caused fires. *note please review the following website www.2carpros.com/forum/8-VT49767.html?postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=140 please review this safety defect soon!

Vehicle was off and parked. Smoke from under vehicle. Disconnected battery to stop fire. Fire at the connection of the ABS computer at site of two 40 amp circuit connections caused ABS system to stop working. ABS and brake light are on all the time, speedometer stopped working, odometer stopped working. I have detailed pictures of the damaged part 2F1Z-2C219-ba connected as part of 1F22-2C346-ac. Code C1185 was present in the ABS computer prior to the fire.
