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.

problem #118

Dec 012014


  • 33,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Sky. While operating the vehicle, the air bag sensor light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the passenger seat sensor was faulty. The seat cushion was replaced and the failure was remedied. Approximately 12,000 miles later, the failure recurred. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified. The failure mileage was 33,000.

The passenger presence system module has gone out. I have done all circuit testing, research and priced the repairs. I am a service technician of 6 years and have worked for GM for the first 3. almost every Saturn Sky I know of has had the pps module fail, and we have many reports and pictures of the passenger air bag not deploying during collisions, sometimes the driver does not either. This is close to a $1000 fix, considering the price of the pps module by itself is $500+ from the dealer. My vehicle was stationary, and in motion, city and highway when this failure occured. The pps module does not recognize a passenger in the car and therefore does not turn the passenger air bag on. The first time it did it, 10 minutes into driving, it turned on and the air bag light went off. A few minutes later it cycled back off, lit up the air bag light and said, 'service air bag, ' on the dic. It cycled one more time to on, and then back off a few minutes later and now stays off. The entire time it cycled back and forth there was a passenger in the car. As a technician and a car enthusiast, I am well aware that cars have to be maintained and expensive parts will be bought over the years, but the overwhelming evidence that there is a problem with the Saturn Sky's air bag system is concerning and I would hope, with as many recalls have gone out over the last several years, that NHTSA, and GM, would do something about it before someone gets hurt like people did in the cobalt ignition recalls. I also have a cobalt, so I know all about that as well. Thank you for your time, and I hope someone will actually investigate this instead of ignoring it and people get hurt. If it was your own vehicle, you would be alarmed as well. Also, there is concern that the 2005-07 Cadillac cts airbag recall was the same part number used in the 2007 Sky, possibly 07-10. I do not have proof of that, yet.

My passenger pressance control module came on after my passenger leaned forward in my car while at a stop light. It now comes on everything I start my car whether I have a passenger or not. My local GMC quote 889 to fix this and even he said that's pretty expensive (note that the quoted price included labor).

Passenger airbag presence switch failed which is common among owners of this same vehicle. Great expense to repair. GM should recall as it is so prevalent before a fatality occurs.

problem #112

Sep 152015


  • 27,000 miles


The passenger side airbag sensor failed in my 2007 Saturn Sky. The car has approximately 27K miles and failed when my 7 year old son sat in the seat as we were getting ready to leave on errands. The cost to fix the sensor is prohibitively expensive and is occuring more and more frequently in this family of cars. This causes the airbag not to function with a passenger in the car. In the event of a wreck the airbag not deploying could cause the fatality of the passenger.

The passenger presence sensor has failed in my vehicle. Any passenger in the car faces added risk if an accident were to occur. It is prohibitively costly (my estimate from the dealership is $800) to do this repair. Given the frequency of this identical failure across this vehicle platform, I find it to be a manufacturer's defect and request their assistance.

Just driving out of parking lot and service airbag light illuminated. It appears as though a very significant number of other Pontiac solstice and Saturn Sky owners share this problem and it is apparently a $1000 fix for a known design defect. This should be a recall.
