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.

When it goes below 20 degrees F, the passenger seat senses someone sitting in it when there is no one there. The airbag light lights on the passenger side and the red airbag light lights. If I push down and release the seat cushion, the passenger airbag light goes off, then the red airbag warning light goes off. In 30 seconds, it all comes back on and starts dinging the alarm again. This has been happening for quite some time but my Jeep/Dodge dealer does not seem to want to help.

Grand Cherokee

  • 27,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee. While driving 25 mph, the contact's vehicle was struck by another vehicle. The vehicle at fault slammed on the brakes, which caused the contact to slam on the brakes as well. The air bags failed to deploy and the seat belts failed to restrain the contact. A police report was filed. He stated that this is a safety issue because the components failed to protect him from bodily harm, which could have led to being severely injured. The current and failure mileages were 27,000.
