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.

The sensor mats in the car have failed at under65K. The models 2005-2007 had a recall on these mats but it doesn't pertain to the 2008 model in which I am experiencing the exact same problem. Additionally, under 65K miles I have had to replace both forward window motors and now the back right motor. The logic 7 sound amp also went bad in 2012.

I started my car in the morning and there was a yellow "air-bag" indicator on my dashboard with a message "driver restraint system fault". it wasn't there the night before. Couple of days later, I took the car to dealer and they diagnosed that "driver seat mat sensor and control box" failed and needed to be replaced for $1,237. BMW had a recall on seat mat sensor on prior year models and now its occurring in other year models as well.

While driving with my wife, I received an on-board light and symbol indicator. Stating that the passenger side airbag and restraint system failure. This is the very same sensor the (OC3 pass side matt) that was recalled in 2006 and 2007 models that had the OC3 sensor.

The very same issue that BMW has recalled their 2006 - 2007 7 series is affecting my 2008 7 series and BMW is refusing the fix the issue. the front passenger seat occupant detection mat that determines if and how the passenger frontal air bag should deploy in a crash may fatigue and develop cracks which could lead to a system failure. Consequence: Should the system fail, in the event of a crash, the front passenger air bags would be deactivated, increasing the risk of personal injury. NHTSA campaign number: 13V-564 components: Air bags air bags:frontal:sensor/control module.
