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 air bag sensor light comes on which disables the system. Checking on the internet, this is a common problem with the C6 Corvettes. The dealer acts as if they have never heard of it. That can not be true. My partner has a 2009 C6 and had the same issue. This has to be a safety issue.

I was driving the car through a residential area when the red air bag warning light in the instrument panel went on. I pulled the car to the side of the road and shut it off. Upon restarting the car, the light stayed on after the lamp tests completed. I then moved the driver's seat forward a bit (the car has power memory seats) and the light went off. I continued driving the car on a couple of errands w/O the light coming back on.

Air bag malfunction light turns on intermittently when car goes over a bump, or during quick stop, or sharp turn. This light indicates that the air bags will not deploy. Possibly related to the wiring harness underneath the seats. Since the light comes on during hard steering motion, bump, or rapid deceleration, I assume the air bags are unlikely to deploy during a crash.
