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.

Altima

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2007 Nissan Altima. Whenever someone sits in the front passenger seat, the air bag light would flash indicating that the air bag was deactivated. The contact took the vehicle to a dealer on March 9th to have the front passenger seat air bag sensor replaced. In December the problem recurred with the front passenger air bag light indicating that the air bag was off. The contact called the manufacturer regarding the air bag light and sensor and they sent a technician to diagnose the vehicle. The technician could not recreate the problem with the air bag light or sensor; therefore, the manufacturer will not repair the vehicle. The contact is concerned about the risk involved due to the air bag sensor malfunctioning and the potential for a serious injury in the event a crash occurs. The failure mileage was 15,211.

I own a 05 Altima. Recently I was hit from rear, no injury, but air bag light came on. The car was sent for repairs and I was told that the rear end collision was not the cause of sensor failure but the fact the computer chip burned. My question is how long will this chip last and if you should give your customers a heads up on this information ?

Altima 4-cyl

Within a week of purchasing the car I noticed that the light indicating that the passenger side airbag was off would illuminated when the 180 lb husband would sit in the passenger seat properly restrained. Not only would it come on and stay on, but it would go off after a little while then come back on. A while later, it would come back on, then go off again. The dealership where I purchased the car reset the computer, but the problem occurred again. At this time, I had a 55 lb child sit in the passenger seat and buckle up the light did not come on. As I understood, it was designed to come on in this situation. The dealership has since put a seat from a new vehicle. Nissan was in no hurry to ship the dealer a new seat into the car, but the same problem happened again. Now, when I have articles that were somewhat heavy, 20-30 lb, ) in the passenger seat without the seat belt buckled the light will come on, go off, and come back on again multiple times at odd intervals. I didn't believe the sensor is working properly when anyone was in the car.
