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.

3/5/14 driver and passenger climate control seats are inoperative. No indicator light after pressing buttons. Took to dealer 3/12/14. From dealer writeup: Verified climate controlled seats are inop. Self tested, could not communicate with dcsm module. Ran oasis, no messages match concern. Performed symptom chart to pinpoint tests concluding a bad dcsm module and main connector was melted. Replaced connector and checked all circuits, ok. Replaced module and rechecked operation for both sats, ok. Returned car to dealer on 3/17/14. After turning on climate control seat, light goes out after a few seconds. Was told by dealer seats were operating correctly, climate control seat operate only when gas engine is running, they would turn of when car goes into hybrid mode. This is not how the seats worked for the past 2.5 years. After several phone calls with Lincoln customer satisfaction group was told that the sync upgrade performed in March 2012 was not compatible with the new dcsm module installed.
