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.

Dash airbag service light periodically illuminated. This condition (to date), has not resulted in logging any diagnostic fault codes, I.e.; dtc(s) B0012, B0013, B0016, B0016, B0019, B0020, B0022, B0023, B0026, B0033, B0040, B0042 or B0044, this illuminated service light fault is only rectified when either; a) I manually re-positioning the driver's seat until the light turns off, or B) I physically re-positioning the yellow (side-airbag) connector located under driver's seat. Either method results in only a temporary resolve, before the problem occurs again. I assume this issue could also be true for the passenger seat too. By service notice / VIN#, GM acknowledges a potential / real airbag issue in my vehicle, dated May 2016. Based on the referenced May 2016 GM service notice, and further substantiated via phone communication, GM requires that a specific diagnostic fault code be present before GM will cover any service coasts to resolve this issue. This, while knowing the existence of an impending safety issue, described in the May 2016 service notice, is uniquely independent of any requirement there must be a diagnostic fault code detected. GM needs to accept ownership of this acknowledged well described issue. In this instances, GM shifts coast responsibility for this potential/real safety issue to the car owner. My research indicates that this issue is not unique to the Chevrolet C6 Corvette, but rather systemic throughout GM model types. Current dealer estimate charges to perform fault diagnostics only (no fault code present), is > $290, plus tbd addition repair coasts. What's wrong with this scenario?

Airbag light on constantly. Never turns off. So airbag is not working. This is a life or death situation that is gms responsibility. I have researched it and it is a very widely known problem that they refuse to repair. How many deaths is too many?

Airbag light on dash turns on and off intermittently while the car is in motion. Speed does not effect the problem. Problem reported to GM dealer and they replaced drivers seat belt tensioner after about 100 miles of travel problem returned. Am very concerned air bags will not function in the event of an accident

Air bag disengaged light on dash comes on when hitting a bump. Not sure whether airbags are really not working or not. Code shows seat belt tension at fault.

The air bag warning light comes on and goes off intermittently as you drive. Speed really has no effect on when. Has come on/off as low as 20mph or as high as 80mph.

The airbag light comes on often. I have found that this is a very common problem for all C6 Corvettes (2005 through 2013). The problem is the connector under the drivers seat. If it is zip tied tightly by the owner, the light will go out for a while. When it comes back on, the zip tie must be replaced to get the connections to work again. Bad connector should be recalled in my opinion. Worried that when the light come on that the air bags are disabled. Very dangerous.

Airbag light went off. Searched forums and it is a common issue with the Corvette (and other GM vehicles, apparently). Used a zip tie to tighten connector to fix the problem but the vehicles should be recalled to fix the connectors under the seats.

As I, "the owner", was driving home from work, I received the air bag warning light on the dash board cluster and moved the vehicle to the far right hand lane and slowed down, after about 15 mins the warning light went away, this happened a few times during the week untill I could have the car looked at by my tech. When I talked with my tech, he said that there were no codes and he recommend that instead of having the passenger seat in the full back position that I should move it forward a little, that way the air bag module wires would not be stressed. After moving the passenger seat forward about an inch or so the air bag warning light has not come back since, current mileage on vehicle is 164,327.

Airbag light came, checked connectors under both driver side and passenger side seats and used a zip-tie to ensure the connectors were tight. Afterwards, the airbag light went off, but the problem has returned.

Air bag light comes on intermittently. Problem seems to be related to air bag connector beneath drivers seat. Moving the seat position will cause the warning lamp to come on or turn off. I'm afraid that one day I'm going to need my air bag and it's not going to deploy. It appears, from complaints on an Corvette owners forum, to be a very common issue with the C6 Corvette and the manufacturer doesn't seem to be addressing it.

Air bag light comes on intermittently. Problem seems to be related to air bag connector beneath drivers seat. Moving the seat position will cause the warning lamp to come on or turn off. I tightened the connectors with wire ties which made the problem less likely, however the problem still on occasion occurs. I'm very afraid that one day I'm going to need my air bag and it's not going to deploy. It appears, from complaints on an Corvette owners forum, to be a very common issue with the C6 Corvette and the manufacturer doesn't seem to be addressing it.
