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 fault light on. Chrysler says that it is the seat belt tensioner on drivers seat. Internet search shows this is a common problem in Chrysler vehicles.

The contact stated the SRS light came on intermittently. The first time he took the vehicle to the dealership, and they were unable to diagnose the problem. The second time, they replaced the retracting spring in the passenger's side seat belt. The problem recurred. The dealership replaced the clock spring in the steering column and the retractor spring in the seat belt. The vehicle is currently at the dealership being repaired.

Engine light sensor, air bag sensor keeps coming on. Took in to dealer for engine light sensor 3 months ago to correct that. Today, took in to dealer for air bag sensor light which kept coming on every 10 seconds. Dealer stated because of a bad sensor in the seatbelt contraption air bag light was coming on--doesn't make sense to me. So, of course they had to order some kind of part to the tune of 118 dollars plus labor so bill was 330 dollars to fix something which I believe is defective and their fault. What the air bag light has to do with the seat belt is beyond me. Noticed a similiar complaint on your site dated September 30, 2004 at 03:21 pm for same model car. I think this needs to be investigated. As the person stated in their complaint, air bag can deploy for no reason, or air bag will not deploy in the event of accident. I believe this is a severe safety issue here.

I have leased my 2002 sebring convertiable lxi on Sept 9, 2002 since then the car has been back for numerous times. Beginning not even 3 months and 500 miles into lease. I started having problems with it. Electrical (air bag light, altertator light, engine light, driver side heated seat), transmission has recently had been serviced and parts have been replaced, I have been telling Chrysler (dealership) since about 500 miles and they told me it wasn't anything, they recently replaced a couple of things at about 26,866. I was having and still having trouble with the ignition key not coming out of the ignition on my last service (March 04) they've replaced the ignition collar. I have tried to return or trade in for a new Chrysler car but they say since I am in a lease there's nothing I could do about it. The air bag light is still coming on every 10 seconds since my last service March 04 but they say nothing is wrong. From what I understand correctly there's two things that could happen 1. air bag will not deplote if I was in an accident and 2. it could deplote at any given time while I'm driving. So needless to say I do not feel safe driving this car. The dealership doesn't seem to care. Can you help me.
