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.

2010 Chevrolet Corvette Owner Comments

problem #8

Corvette 8-cyl

  • 40,000 miles


From time to time the air bag light comes on and stays on. It will go off if I move the driver's seat back and forth a little. I have taken it to the dealer and they can find nothing wrong even after taking the driver's seat out and completely re-installing it. This continues to happen from time to time and my concern is that I have come to ignore the light and one of these days the light will be on for a reason and I will ignore it. I have been told that many other 2010 Corvette owners have the same complaint my suspicion is that the issue is in the wiring which may be getting pinched from time to time as the seat moves back and forth.

The air bag light comes on for while driving this has happened 4 times total. After car shutdown and restart it resets. This is a major safety issue. If it shorts prior to an accident and the airbag does not deploy someone may be injured or even worse die from this ongoing problem.

While driving at varying speeds, the air bag light will flash on and off randomly. This indicates a fault with the airbag system, and as a result the airbags are deactivated and will not provide protection to occupants. The car was taken to the dealer, upon which the front impact sensor was replaced. The problem then returned several days later. It would appear based on others' experiences with this issue that it is related to a wiring harness connector that is secured to the seat frame.

When I accelerate hard from a stop and get to a high speed ( over 80 mph ) the airbag light comes on. When the airbag light is on all airbags are disabled. The only way to turn the light back of is to turn off the car and restart it. It will be fine until I accelerate quickly to a high speed. This car was made to drive fast and this shouldn't happen. I have taken to the dealer many times and they cannot fix it. This is a know problem with the Corvette as I have talk with other owners who have the same problem.
