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.

Air bag dash light came on and stays on after startup. I took the Jeep in to texan : Jeep at 18555 59 N humble, Texas 77338 to have it checked out on 9/03/16.they said it was not commuticating with the PCM and there was no recall for the airbag problem. So it was not repaired and the air bag light stays on. Instead they preformed 3 other saftey recalls they said the Jeep needed but air bag problem the would not fix.

My Jeep was in a really bad accident and the front end was totally bashed in and none of the air bags came out. The Jeep is a complete total and the air bags are still not deployed. Have you had any other complaints regarding this year and type of vehicle? it was in motion and ran into a huge area with several large signs.

"takata recall" my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee was purchased used from a dealership with "0" open recalls. After owning the vehicle less than 2 months, hit a pot hole and the passengers air bag deactivation light and the airbag light on the instrument panel are both on. In addition, the tire inflation indicator is on and we paid to have a new sensor installed. Light is still on-being told there is a malfunction. Have read other complaints filed which state both the airbag and tire sensor indicators have come on at the same time.

When starting ignition, wipers activate. While driving, headlights and instrument panel flash intermittently. When starting ignition and while driving, air conditioner blower shuts down, cuts out intermittently and blower, when operative, only works on high. Sometimes switching to off and restarting or hitting a bump activates blower. At one time opening and closing the glove compartment activated blower but not any longer. Passenger air bag lights continuously.

Air bag warning light first came on intermittently. At one time I could adjust the passenger seat and correct the problem. It now stays on all the time. I see that the 2004 model has a recall, and mine was manufactured in late 2004, but is not on the recall VIN list. I did not realize that this may mean the airbag is not functioning at all, but rather thought it was just an electrical problem. The 2005 model should have been included in this recall. This looks like a long standing problem with previous years models and obviously has not been corrected in the 2005 model.

Noticed the "pass air bag warning light" was staying on all the time. Then I received a P41 ignition switch recall. Took the car to a Chrysler dealer for ignition switch replacement. Air bag warning light still stays on after switch replacement. My reasoning is that the air bag warning light originally came on because the original ignition switch was faulty and caused damage to the air bag and/or it's sensor circuitry. Is there any recourse under this recall to rectify this air bag warning light problem with hopefully no cost to me.
