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.

Consumer had the same problem as mentioned in NHTSA recall 02V293000. Certain mini vans, the clockspring assembly may have been wounded incorrectly during vehicle assembly process. The dealer indicated this vehicle was not included in the recall due to VIN.

Dealership informed me that my clockspring was malfunctioning and needed to be replaced. The clockspring would have to be ordered and to return in one week at the start of the day to have it installed. When I returned, I was informed that it was still not available a was now due to it being on national backorder. The airbag light goes off and on at various times. It always comes on and stays on now at initial start up. Plus the attention bell sounds at that same time. This can also occur when changing lanes and making turns. Any motion of the steering wheel can make the light come on and bell ring at any time while vehicle is turned on. This occurs in any gear, as well as while it is in park. Occassionally when driving on a straight-A-way, the light will go off. However a simple lane change makes it come on again. This malfunction makes me fear for my life as well as for others, whether they are my passengers or another vehciles occupants. My greatest fear is that the airbag will deploy while I am driving and cause me to have a serious or fatal accident. I also fear that if I am involved in anytype of accident that the airbag may not deploy at all. I strongly feel that my safety as well as others, is in serious jeapordy. How can I get this part into my dealership and resolved quickly? I anxiously await your needed reponse. Thank you!
