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.

Driver information center (dic) began suddenly displaying "service airbag soon" alert when passenger is seated within vehicle. Cursory inspection revealed no obvious problem with airbag system components to include visible wiring and accessible sensor connection points. This problem appears to be consistent with the condition addressed in GM recall number 10355 (NHTSA campaign id 10V644000). The referenced recall includes certain "2006 model year Cadillac Cts and Cts-V vehicles"; however, GM's customer service center is stating that my particular 2006 Cts VIN# is not showing any outstanding recalls at this time.

I have a Cadillac Cts 2006 and my air bag light came on for no reason. I took the car to the Cadillac dealer for diagnosis and they found out that the front sensor control module needs to be replaced. I called GM motors, because I found out the same sensor is recalled for Cadillac Cts models 2005-2006 and the campaign id # is 10V644000, however GM told me that my car is too old to honor the recall and they refuse to replace it. Here is the NHTSA campaign id number :10V644000 that stats: "non-deployment of the front passenger air bag in the event of a crash necessitating that air bag's deployment may reduce protection of the passenger and increase the risk or severity of injury to them... dealers will replace the passenger sensing system free of charge..GM safety recall no. 100355" I am not sure why my car is too old for them and not qualifying for the recall since is the exact year for the recall 2006, the exact model - Cts, with the exact problem description for the recall. Please help and thank you for your time.

My airbag light is on and when I took it to the dealer, the passenger airbag module was gone in it and they refused to repair it cause my warranty was expired and there is no recall on the vehicle. I don't understand its a recall on the 2009 model Cadillac Cts for the airbag but not the 2006. If im in a car accident, it will not deflate.
