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.

problem #2

Town Car

  • Automatic transmission
  • 124,000 miles


I find it ridiculous that this car is not that old but yet, somehow parts are breaking!! I also own a Mitsubishi and I have only had to do maintenance on that car and not one thing has actually broken! I don't understand!! I live in a place where the fog is bad enough that i don't need NOT being able to SEE out my WINDOW to be an added issue!! I am going to die in this car because I can not pay for a replacement!

Town Car Executive 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 30,100 miles

Over the last year, this car had the Blower Motor stop working. If the Battery was disconnected and then reconnected resetting the EATC (Electronic Automatic Temperature Control) module, it would start working again. This went on periodically once a month or so, until now it is totally non-fuctional.

The EATC system on these cars is problematic. Very crude self diagnostic capability. I purchased a replacement EATC Control Head, and am waiting for it to come it to replace it to see if this solves the problem. I don't believe it is the Blower Motor Controller, also known as the VBC (Variable Blower Control) that is mounted in the plenum.
