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.

2004 Mercury Marauder Owner Comments

The headlight relay portion of the lighting control module intermittently fails causing the headlights to turn off. This results in loss of visibility, and could result in a collision. The lights remain off for an unknown period of time and then turn back on. I have experienced 1-2 minute periods without light. This is a well know issue with 2003-2004 Ford Crown Victoria, Mercury Grand Marquis, and Mercury Marauder (Lincoln town car may also be involved).
