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 Dodge Dakota Owner Comments

problem #3

Dec 112006

Dakota 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 13,670 miles


The contact owns a 2005 Dodge Dakota. While driving at various speeds, the air bag light illuminated. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of failure, however, they reset the controller. This did not correct the failure and it repeatedly continued to occur. The current mileage was 17,404 and failure mileage was 13,670. Updated 10/25/07

Air-bag warning lights come on intermittently sometimes remain on for miles. Dealer cannot duplicate problem. Question is, will they work when needed?

Dakota 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • miles
Airbag lights continue to come on intermittently. Previous truck was traded in as the dealer could not fix the issue. Now, the new truck is experiencing the same issue. I think this should be kept track of in case of a widespread issue concerning airbag warning lights in similar vehicles (2005 Dodge Dakota).
