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.

While driving, the visibility wipers engaged with out being turned on by me. The cleaner sprayed the entire contents out from reservoir with out me pressing the button. This also occured while vehicle was not turned on with the key. Visibility wipers will not turn on when turned to any speed except high.

The contact owns a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis. The contact stated that the windshield wipers and the washer activated with no warning several times. The contact had a mechanic replace the wiper motor twice but the failure recurred. The contact was to determine if the mechanic would replace the part a third time or have the repairs performed by a dealer. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 70,000. Updated 06/29/16

I was driving home with my wife and wipers came on in delay mode by themselves without me touching anything. I called my dealer and was told that they thought it was the wiper motor or the multi function switch. First I replaced multi function switch and the same issue wiper came on in delay mode. I then replaced the wiper motor and that worked until 3/19/14 while I took my car out for my 31st wedding anniversary with my wife we were driving to go to dinner and my wiper came on once again at this point I am so outraged at this because I just put new wiper blade on 2 days before and they just started going on in the same way as before in delay mode. I once again have to look into this wiper issue and I am sick to death nothing ever gets recalled or the cost taken by Ford for the many issues with this car. There is now 44000 mile on a car I only use when it's nice out and this is just one more problem to deal with again.

While driving home with my wife and granddaughter my wipers started to go on in delay mood and my lights turned on.I was shocked at this because my wiper switch was in the off setting and my light switch was in auto setting and it was a bright sunny day.after about ten or 15 minutes the wipers stopped and lights went out.a few day later I was going to the store and it started all over wipers staying on in the delay mood and this time did not stop.I call my brother in Florida whom is a auto tech and he told me that it seemed like the multifuction switch and told me to change it out which I did.it did not resolve the issue and the car remains down due to this issue.there is only 42300 on this car which my father gave me as a gift and he bought it new from leominster Lincoln mecury and I feel this issue is a safety problem which could lead to complete wiper failing or worse a car fire from some defective system that controls this wiper system.car remains down as of the writing of this report.due to myself being disabled and on S/S disability I do not have the money to fix this problem because I feel a dealer service tech should take this issue from here.I have disconected the battey and the car now sits in my driveway.
