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.

I was driving on the interstate and several warning lights appeared on the dash board. I took the vehicle to the local repair shop and found out that the airbag clockspring was no longer operational. In addition, the anti lock brake feature, cruise control, and airbag are no longer operational. I have been looking for this part for quite some time and it is not available in most cases. The original cost for the clockspring ranged from $80 to $130 depending on the dealer. I have been able to find one clockspring and the dealer wanted $650 for the part plus installation, and he only had one available.

The warning light about air bags is lit-indicating that the air bags are not working. The dealership tried many remedies including a new passenger seat, and another used part. These repairs did not fix the problem because the parts needed to be "VIN specific." I was finally told that the only remedy is a sprag and pad restraint, and that there are only five available in the United States. After waiting for the part to come in, the dealer informed me that the part was no longer available. The part is not manufactured any longer. I called Chrysler customer care. They gave my dealer another parts source, but the part was not available there either. I now have a car without functioning airbags. I am not sure if this affects only the passenger airbags or all airbags. I am afraid to drive the car at this point.

The airbag clockspring has broken and we were told the airbags, anti lock brakes and the stability control will not work without this part. We have not been able to find this part and have been told that it is on back order and anywhere from 35 to 100 are on the waiting list before us. This is for the mopar replacement part. No one else is making this part and we are forced to drive, what we feel is an unsafe car. Nothing particular happened, the warning lights just went on.

I have been waiting over 3 months for the dealership to get this part. This is a real safety issue. What if I was in an accident? please, please get me an answer on this. I called Chrysler directly and they do not know when these parts will be in. I am afraid to drive my car, but must get to work. Thank you clock spring 68271255aa

The contact owns a 2007 Jeep Liberty. The contact stated that the vehicle was vandalized, which caused the vehicle to have required repairs. The insurance company covered the dealer replacing the ignition switch, wiring, instrument panel, and the 4 wheel drive function, reprogrammed the master key, along with additional repairs. Months later, the service stability traction control warning lamp flashed and then remained lit. The contact also heard an abnormal noise while traveling over 40 mph each time the failure recurred. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who indicated that the clock spring assembly needed to be replaced, but the part was on backorder. The contact also checked with a second dealer who also indicated that the part was on backorder. The vehicle was not repaired. The contact continued to experience the failure while waiting for the part. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 120,000.

The passenger air bag warning light deployed or illuminated for an unknown reason and has remained on through the evening. When I arrived home and restarted the vehicle the light came on when I started the car and then turned off. I have never noticed this intermittent error light prior to this date.
