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.

Warning lights on dashboard appear intermittently. The lights that come on are the passenger airbag light and the advance traction control. Also the passenger air bag light on the middle of the dashboard flashes off and on. Only happens maybe 20% of the time. Have had it to the dealer twice, the codes that come up they have never seen before so can't diagnose the problem. When I do take it in most of the times the lights don't come on so they ask whets the problem? I don't know if the car is safe to drive or not.
