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.

1998 Mercury Mountaineer Owner Comments

problem #1

Feb 172014

Mountaineer 6-cyl

  • 104,000 miles


All of a sudden with no warning my interior dome lights, power windows and front and back windshield wipers didn't function. I was driving it started to rain and I could see very well without functioning wipers. I had to pull over to the side of the road. I figure that a fuse might have blown but when I checked all fuses they seem to be ok. I was reviewing a recall for a 1999 Mountaineer for a GEM problem. Although my vehicle is a 1998, could this problem be similar to the 1999 recall. It appears to have all the similar symptoms. Is it possible that my 1998 Mountaineer has a recall for the same problem. Thank you
