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.

Grand Marquis

  • 49,200 miles


This is on my 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis gs. The light processor failed and my headlights went out after driving the vehicle for 5 to 10 minutes. They continue to do this until the system would reset, taking 15 to 30 seconds. This also happen on my 1997 Ford crown vic fire chiefs car when I had that vehicle. Both vehicles needed to have the light processor replaced costing over $500. My mechanic stated that when he called the dealer they stated that they always keep 3 or 4 in stock because this is a problem. My question is why is this not a recall item"?? the headlights going out while driving down the road at night must be a safety issue" thank you for your time in this matter.
