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.

Air bag light stays on on instrument cluster. Found out thru research on the Corvette forum and talking to Chevy dealerships that this is a very common problem.usually fixed by unplugging and cleaning or tie wrapping the connector under the seats.which usually keeps the light out temporarily. But it comes back on eventually and disables the airbag so it won't work in a crash. GM needs to fix this serious problem.(different type connector maybe)I believe it effects cars from 2005-2013.I for one don't want to lose my life because they didn't want to invest in a couple dollar you??

The airbag light came on while driving at 35-45 mph speeds and stayed on. The light did not go off after turning the vehicle off and on again.

Air bag light comes on and stays on, may go off from time to time but remains on while driving. Air bag may not deploy while light is on. No code shows up when light is off, so dealer has been unable to locate problem.

Just back from the dealer. Serviceman said "frayed wire at seat belt", code B0040. Written up as "driver seat connector unplugged". they added dielectric grease, re-mated the connector and now the intermittent airbag dash warning light has ceased.

Passenger air bag light shows off when my 120 pound wife sits in the passenger seat...took the car to the dealer today and was told that it works if the passenger weighs 150 pounds...please advise next steps as this seems very unsafe and I want the air bag functional for my passengers who are adults! was even told to have my wife put more things in her purse to add to her weight!
