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.

My wife sat in passenger seat and closed the door. We noticed that the air bag indicator was sensing that there was no one sitting in the passenger seat (air bag off)

The passenger side airbag deactivation indicator keeps going on signifying air bag is not functional even though there is an adult seating there.

The contact owned a 2015 Nissan Leaf. While driving approximately 40 mph, the vehicle was involved in a front end three vehicle collision. The air bags did not deploy. The vehicle was towed to a towing yard where it was deemed destroyed. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. There was one injury that did not require medical attention. The contact suffered from back pain and pain to the right hand and thumb pain. A police report was filed. The failure mileage was approximately 25,000.

The passenger air bag turns on at random times when a passenger (over 140 pounds) is in the seat. This happens randomly, but consistently. We've tried different configurations; getting in the seat after the car has started, hoping up and down (trying to trigger the weight sensor), changing occupants, un-buckling and re-buckling the seat belt. Nothing seems to make the issue go away. Car is at the dealership, so far they have no leads.

The Leaf often shows that my passenger air bag is disabled, even though my son who is over 100 pounds is sitting in the seat with the seat belt on. This happens about 50% of the time at all speeds when he is in the passenger seat. I think there is something wrong with the sensors in the passenger seat. I would hate to get in a crash and not have the airbags deploy!
