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.

Purchased vehicle new 7/6/05. On 12/18/06, 31K miles, brought it to dealer with SRS light on. Dealer determined the passenger seatbelt tensioner needed replacement. Repair was effected. SRS light on again, brought to dealer 1/2/07, 32.5K miles. The passenger seatbelt buckle was replaced. SRS light on again (observed after going over a section of uneven pavement), brought to dealer 1/16/07, 33.4K miles. I think that time they reset the computer component. SRS light on again 1/20/07, 33.5K miles, passenger seatbelt tensioner replaced again. SRS light on again 5/2/07, 39.5K miles, the entire passenger restraining system and computer component were replaced by dealer. SRS light on again 6/5/07, 41K miles, car is with dealer now. During this time I have been unable to determine any action that triggers the SRS light to come on. This last time the passenger seat had been empty for the previous 2 days.

Civic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Consumer has a new Honda Civic. The SRS indicator light has not worked properly since he owned the vehicle. The SRS indicator light alerts consumer of potential problems with airbags or seat belts. The SRS light has been on since he first purchased vehicle. Took vehicle to dealer 4 times for the SRS light, and the light remained on. Dealer reset the computer, hoping the SRS light would not come on any more, but SRS light continued to come on. Also, dealer replaced passenger front seat, belt and this did not keep SRS light from coming on. Seat belt was replaced on May 12, 2005, vehicle was at dealer for SRS light on March 31, 2005, April 29, 2005 and June 2, 2005. Owners manual stated that ignoring the SRS indicator could result in serious injury or death if the airbag systems or sea tbelts do not work properly.
