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.

I took my truck in because the A/C on the drivers side wasn't cooling properly. I was told it was $1000 to replace an actuator. I declined. I came back from dealership with a cracked dash around the passenger air bag. Apparently this and the faulty air bag are well known issues. So because GM doesn't have the part, I can't get my airbag fixed and the cracked dash make my vehicle less safe.

At the top left corner of the passenger side air bag there is a crack in the dash board. I am concerned that in the case of the airbag deploying it will send hard plastic across the entire cab, or that the air bag may be prematurely deployed due to lack of support.

Started getting an "service SRS system" dic notification and SRS. I was able to narrow down the cause to opening the drivers side front door. Used a scan tool to read the codes and it was throwing code B0085 symptom 00 which is a side impact sensor. Replaced side impact sensor and issues persist with the same symptoms. I was directed by a few mechanics that Chevrolet had changed the gauge of the wires and they have seen multiple failures within the shielding which does not have any signs of wear. Using an ohm meter I tested out the sensor wires and sure enough when the door is closed the wire has contact however if it moves at all it breaks creating an open loop. I have looked over every inch of the harness and there is zero signs of wear on the protective cover, tape, or even the wire insulator itself.

Shortly after purchasing my 2010 Silverado a small crack appeared on the dash by the corner of the passenger air bag. A month or so later another crack developed above the instrument cluster that is now (years later) a foot in length. There is a 3rd crack developing. I have 3 friends with similar trucks and these cracks occurred in the identical spot on their dashs. It has to be a risk to the airbag, or in any front impact. These cracks are sharp and right in the driver and passengers face. After searching online I have discovered it is a widespread issue.

My dash on my truck has cracks in the dash by the airbag and above the gauge cluster. I am worried if Chevrolet does not do a voluntary recall on this there is a chance that the airbag may not function properly.
