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.

Mark VIII 8-cyl

  • 88,000 miles


The contact owns a 1998 Lincoln Mark viii. While driving at a low speed the contact stated that the rear ABS failed. The dealer could not repair the vehicle because the rear wheel ABS sensor was no longer available. Report 238373 was filed with the manufacturer. The manufacturer attempted to locate the part, but the part was no longer in production; therefore; they could not offer any assistance. The dealer disconnected the rear ABS sensor to ensure that the rear brakes would function properly; yet, it caused the vehicle to vibrate and the ABS light to illuminate constantly. The failure and the current mileages were 88,000. Updated 8/25/10 updated 08/27/10
