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.

2005 Chevrolet Optra Owner Comments

Optra 4-cyl

The service air bag light on with code B2502, B1104, B2500. They call the replaced part as "display/clock" assembly which makes it sound like a non-safety related issue but it is actually something wrong with the airbag. It happened twice on my car. The first time it is was still in warranty, mileage should be around 30K-40K km. This time the mileage is 125506km. What makes me nervous is that the passenger airbag light in the "display/clock" unit flashes irregularly for about 10-30 seconds when starting the car. I said irregular flashes, I meant the kind that are caused by unsecured connection of wire.
