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.

problem #1

Sierra 1500 4.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 118,000 miles

Service airbag light on constantly. No codes being indicated on "Super Chip" code reader. Dealership wants almost $100 just to put it on the diagnosis machine. I am not willing to spend $100 to find out that its a $5.00 fuse or something else petty. I am however concerned that if I get in an accident my airbag won't work. I pointed out to the service guy that the sensor under the passenger seat is actually broken away from the screw mount, he said "thats no big deal and would cause the trouble light to come on". I do not trust dealership service departments so I am hesitant to let them look into the problem. Anyone else have this problem?
