Summary Certain minivans may have incorrect fuel line end forms that result in a lower than specified pull apart force for the installed fuel line connection.
Summary Certain Windstar minivans built with instrument clusters without a "message center" fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 118, "Power-operated Window, Partition, and Roof Panel Systems." If the key is placed in the "Accessory" position and remains there for more than 70 seconds, all accessories connected to the accessory relay, including the power windows, remain operable when the key is moved to the "OFF" position, even after either front door is opened. The standard requires that power operated windows may be closed only when the key is in the "On," "Start," or "Accessory" positions, or during the interval between the time the key is turned off, and the opening of either of the vehicle's front doors.
Summary On certain minivans equipped with an adjustable pedal option, the driver floor mat could interfere with the accelerator pedal, potentially resulting in a stuck throttle.
Summary These minivans may have been built with incorrect urethane, resulting in an adhesive bond rather than the intended molecular bond for the front windshield and rear liftgate glass. If the bond deteriorates, it could provide less than the intended level of glass retention in the event of a crash.
