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.

My 2004 Honda Pilot is having a SRS problem for the second time. It is the part # 81334-S9V-A03 which is for the sensor under the passenger seat. The dealership stated that the airbags may not deploy with the sensor out. This is the second time this has happened for this same vehicle in 3 years. The first was in January 2008 so it has gone only 24K miles in that time. When checking the first time there was a recall on some sensors for the 2004 Honda Pilot for this sensor but none for my vehicles VIN.

I own a 2004 Honda Pilot. The seatbelt sensor switch came on at around 63K miles. Took to Honda, they said passenger seat airbags sensor is defective and they have to take seat apart to repair. Proposed cost is around $500. Have not repaired yet due to cost. Inquired with other owners in my town that own same care, make and model year 2004 and 2005. 6 other women in my town have had exact same problem with their Pilot. I feel it should be a warranted part due to it being a life safety issue of a defective sensor on the Pilot. Complained to local dealership, herb chambers Honda, westborough, MA. They said they have had some repairs like that but not alot and it is not a recall problem. I would like it investigated to see how many Honda Pilot have had this problem and if it should be a Honda cost for such a defect. Honda doesn't not even tell you to not let anyone sit in the passenger seat inspite of the sensor being on indicating a defect.
