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.

The red airbag light on dash turns on and off randomly while driving. This is the red airbag light...not the passenger airbag light. We have had it "fixed" 3 times at the dealer, and it continues to happen. We have had the drivers seat airbag sensor replaced, passenger seat cushion assy-fr seat replaced, and codes reset. Specifically gds code B1490 and pods reset. The codes were reset March 14, 2014 and on March 22, 2014 the red airbag light began turning on and off again. We know Hyundai has had airbag problems in the past. That is why we are reporting this complaint. Hopefully this is just a single incident, not a giant airbag problem again!
