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.

Car was in an accident and the air bag(s) did not deploy. The was major front end damage done to the vehicle. The accident resulted in some bodily injury that required medical attention. I had spoken to the police officer on the scene, my doctor in the emergency room and the mechanic at the auto body shop and they all said there was no reason that the air bags should not have deployed.

Accent

  • 34,500 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Accent. While driving at any speed, the passenger side air bag icon indicates that no one is sitting in the passenger seat, even when it is occupied. As a result, the passenger side air bag is disabled. Prior to the failure, the contact noticed that the indicator light would turn off and on whenever the vehicle was started. The vehicle has been to the dealer several different times, but the failure still persists. The current and failure mileages were 34,500.

Accent 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 3,452 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Hyundai Accent. The contact stated that the air bag light was illuminated on the driver side. She took the vehicle to the dealer, but they did not recognize the error codes and just turned off the air bag light. The contact was informed that the vehicle was safe to drive. In December of 2007, the light illuminated again. The service department cleaned the connection and cleared the codes. On January 14, 2008, the failure recurred a third time. The dealer cleared the error codes and ordered parts for the seat belts, which regulated the air bag sensor. The light illuminated again a couple of days later and the dealer installed the part for the sensor. Next, the passenger side air bag light began illuminating intermittently. When the contact who is 5'7 and 118 lbs would sit in the passenger seat, the light would illuminate. The dealer stated that they could not provide weight regulations (the weight someone should be for the light not to illuminate). They further stated that they could perform a diagnostic on the vehicle. Consumer Affairs stated that the air bag sensor should engage at 130-140 lbs, while another representative stated the air bag sensor should engage somewhere between 90 and 120 lbs. Another department agreed with Consumer Affairs regarding the weight. As of January of 2008, there was moisture in the tail lights, which could cause poor illumination. The dealer replaced them, but informed the contact that the failure may recur. In addition, the battery failed and the dealer stated that there was something possibly draining the battery when the vehicle was off. The battery was tested and appeared to be fine. The current mileage was 11,070 and failure mileage was 3,452. Updated 05/12/08 the thermostat and gasket were replaced. The check engine light illuminated. There was condensation in both tail lights, a noise was heard when shifting into reverse, there was a rattle/clunk when turning corners. Updated
