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 was driving the vehicle. I came to a complete stop at a stop sign. For no apparent reason, the air bag light came on and stayed on. I consulted with the manufacturer dealer where the vehicle was purchased. The dealer claimed there was no recall for the Nitro air bag when in fact Chrysler mini-vans were under recall for a clock spring which is probably the same part used in the Nitro. Took it to the dealer and was told is could be several things beginning with a switch in one seat. Replaced the switch and the light is still on. These parts are $200-400 a piece times two seats because both seats activate the air bags sensors. More importantly, no guaranteed that this is a solution to the problem. Basically, dealer is no sure why the air bag light is on. Called Chrysler customer car they had no answers plus I was told anyone that could help me would require a 24 hour time lapse before they would actually call me back. Clerk on the other end of line was asking me what should they do for me to fix the problem.
