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.

Airbag warning light on because of a malfunction with the right side airbag inflator, as in many other Acura vehicles, and as shown by the recalls on it. Also the airbag is not working because of the passenger weight sensor is showing as not working, and the airbag is not working because the driver seat belt sensor in the buckle switch is not working either, all affecting the airbag deployment and thus the safety of the cars passengers. Acura refuses to fix under warranty.
