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.

This has happened to everyone I know that had this car. AC/Heat just stopped and wouldn't work. The garage said they would have to pull out the whole dash to fix it!! Got it home and few months later the fan stopped blowing! I use to love this car for it handles nice and great to drive but the problem is costly and annoying!

Grand Marquis LSE 4.6L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 56,410 miles

THE ELECTRONIC CLIMATE CONTROL FAILED ON MY 2003 MERCURY GRAND MARQUIS AT 56, 410 MILES. IT LOOKS ALMOST IDENTICAL TO THE UNIT MY MOTHER HAD ON HER 1988 LINCOLN MARK V11. HER UNIT FAILED EARLY ON, JUST AS MINE DID. I FEEL FORD HAS TO DO A BETTER JOB ON THE DESIGN OF THESE UNITS. THEY HAVE HAD ENOUGH TIME TO LEARN FROM THEIR PRIOR FAILURES WITH THIS CONTROLLER, AND MAKE THE NECESSARY CORRECTIONS.
