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.

For no apparent reason the service air bag light activated for the passenger seat while driving. Found that the air bag sensor in the seat has a separation crack. Nothing heavy has ever been placed on the seat and my only passenger weighs only 97 lbs. I have read that GM has recalled many of the passenger seat sensors just not for the Sky due to the sensors breaking. I would like to request that this issue is addressed as this happened while we were driving and if an accident had happened the passenger air bag would not have deployed.

As so many other Sky and solstice owners have experienced the passenger seat airbag sensor has failed rendering the right side air bag inoperable. After some research this is apparently a defect going back to the time of manufacture. Very little use of my seat has made my car unsafe for passengers obviously from a defect. GM has been of no help to resolve this safety issue other than a charge of a $1000 to replace it. A recall is required here. This is no different from the ignition key issue.

Driving and the service air bag light came on. Took my vehicle to a GM dealership for the ignition switch recall and asked them to diagnose it. They came back and told me that it was crucial to get it fixed and if I ever was in an accident the air bag would not deploy. Quoted me $850 to get it fixed! told them I couldn't afford to fix it right now. Its been 3 months and I have a 7 year old. I use my husbands truck to take my son to school. I wont let anyone sit in the passenger seat in fear of crashing with no airbag. Not good GM. Please recall this so no one gets hurt! I've never heard of airbags going so quickly (if at all) in a vehicle. Faulty equipment that continues to be ignored.

For 7 months the warning light on the passenger side air bag has been on. I called onstar to test the car and they said to to take the car in immediately. I spent $1000 repairing the air bag. There have been several hundred complaints about the same issue with other Saturn Sky owners.

Took my 2007 Saturn Sky ( within warranty) to Saturn dealer in October 2008 for service on defective passenger airbag. The service department had several of their people sit in the seat and could not find a defect (so they said). They did not perform a diagnostic ! today I took the same vehicle (now out of warranty, of course) to Chevrolet dealer service department for ignition (recall) and asked them to also look at passenger airbag. Lo and behold they found a defective air bag module, and it will cost me $800 to replace! imagine that! thanks GM! I am joining in with the hundreds of other Saturn Sky owners and asking: Why hasn't there been a safety recall on the Saturn Sky defective airbag module"??"!!

Had my ignition switch replaced for a recall on 7/3/14. On July 25th I had my first passenger since the ignition switch work enter the vehicle. As soon as the person seated themselves on the passenger seat I received a warning on the information center of the car stating 'service airbag soon' and the airbag indicator showed that the airbag was 'off' even though someone was seated there. This was not a 'one time incident, and has not resolved itself and continues to be this way. After some research, I found this is not an isolated incident on this model and year. This is a safety concern and should be a recall from the manufacturer (General Motors) to replace the faulty parts instead of charging me and the numerous others with the same issue upwards of one thousand dollars to repair this.

Failure of the passenger presence sensor for the Saturn Sky airbag. Very common for this model vehicle (Saturn Sky and Pontiac solstice). Design / engineering / manufacturing error. Failure of this sensor means that the airbag will not deploy for a passenger in case of an accident. Severe safety issue but GM will not replace with rationalization that vehicle is out of warranty.

When taking my car in for ignition recall repairs I noticed that my air bag light came on. GM customer service told me that when the new ignition switch was installed the error would clear itself. It did not, and when I brought this to the GM dealership service desk they denied that there was any linkage between the airbag operation and the ignition switch despite the description in their own recall notice warning that the airbag might not inflate if the original switch was faulty. GM is attempting to avoid the cost of a new airbag made ineffective by their own faulty ignition switch. I went to the GM dealer to have my car made safe and was directed to leave the dealership with an unsafe car, without a working airbag. This should be addressed by the NHTSA and make GM insure that all safety systems are working properly after recall repairs are completed!

Passenger airbag light stays on due to a faulty sensor module. Will not pass Virginia inspection. Needs to be recalled because it is a safety issue. Owners of this car should not have to go out and pay upwards to $1000 to have this fixed.

Passenger presence module-service air bag warning is activated and comes on periodically due to a defective sensor which results in air bag not functioning properly or being deployed in the event of an accident. This is an obvious safety concern that GM is aware of and has been recalled in other model cars except for the Saturn Sky and Pontiac solstice. It is a major safety concern and one that should be addressed by recall.

2007 Saturn Sky 25000 miles I just took my Sky into the dealer for the ignition recall, and while there I had them run diagnostic test on my airbag system at the cost of 113 dollars. It had code B0081 ( passenger present module failure). This I expected from reading all the other complaints that have been filed. I have read complaints on other Saturn forums, where some people have had this problem repaired at their own expense (1000 dollars), just to have it return in less than a year. I don?T think the public should have to pay such an expense for a safety problem that should be handled as a safety recall. There has been several complaints filed on this same problem.

At times the passenger air bag indicator shows off when a passenger is in the passenger seat. This has been happening for years. Most of the time the indicator is on when a passenger is in the car and when the indicator is off I have tried to drive to the nearest Saturn dealer but the indicator then shows on when I get to the dealer(which was 50 miles away). Finally when the recent GM ignition switch recall directed me to a closer GM dealer I brought my car in and told them about the air bag issue. For two days they could not get the air bag indicator to show off with a passenger in the passenger seat, however on the third day the indicator showed off. They told me it was the air bag sensor in the seat. To replace the part($500) and labor cost it would cost me $800. They told me other owners have had this problem. Since this is a safety issue, I feel this should also be a recall item.
