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 "passenger airbag not on" light has been intermittently flashing. It now remains lit (passenger airbag off) when the seat is unoccupied and when a full grown adult sits in the passenger seat. In November of 2012, the airbag light began to flash on the dashboard panel. I took my car into a Nissan dealership for repair after reading about campaign 08V521000. After diagnostics were ran by the technician, it was found that the SRS system was off, the occupant sensory unit failed (dtc code B1018), and a new seat cushion assembly is needed to repair the malfunction. Nissan was contacted about the malfunction and denied covering the repair under the recall since my VIN didn't fall under the recall, even though the conditions for repair fit the description. The vehicle was not repaired. I want Nissan to repair this malfunction so that I, and my passengers, can feel safe in my car.

Altima 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 21,000 miles
The contact owns a 2008 Nissan Altima. The contact received a recall notice for NHTSA campaign id number 08V521000 and immediately called the dealer for repairs. The vehicle was repaired according to the recall because the front passenger side air bag continued to illuminate on the instrument panel. In the event of a crash, the air bag may not function properly. He called the manufacturer and was referred back to the dealer, but they could not remedy the failure. The failure still persists. The failure and current mileages were 21,000. Updated 06/27/09 updated 06/23/09.
