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.

Passenger sensing system for passenger side airbags shows pasgr presence module invalid data, GM dealer says they will replace only if I pay about $900. I investigated and found NHTSA action number DP16001 May 16 2016. I want to add my vehicle into this claim. This is a severe issue just because no one has been injured doesn't lessen the importance this could be handled by GM by volunteering to replace and repair when a vehicle comes to their service center for the defect

My passenger airbag light came on. When I took my vehicle to the dealer, I was told repairs were going to be close to $1,000! while searching for information on this, I discovered hundreds of Saturn Sky and Pontiac solstice owners having the exact same problem. If this is a defective piece, that involves passenger safety and lives, this needs to be addressed asap. Thank you.

The passenger air bag sensor has been intermittent for the last year and on a recent trip failed to function during actual driving, disabling the air bag, turned on the "service airbag" display and light and would not clear. This occurred several times and then became permanent. The seat was occupied and it was a intermittent failure that became permanent. Since the fairlure occurred while away from home and on the weekend, took the vehicle to a shop who read the code (B0081) tried to further diagnose the failure and then indicated the most probable cause was the ppu unit (whatever that is) there were none available locally so drove the car home (columbus oh to dallas, tx) and parked it being careful with my driving as my wife was in the passenger seat. Doing internet searches indicated that this is a common problem with the car and GM has refused to acknowledge it because the car is no longer in production even though the problem existed during the actual production cycle. Why does G"M not recall the car with an obvious safety defect that can affect lives?"

Airbag warning indicator stays lit. On the dic and cluster. Noticed this about 2 weeks ago. This is a major safety hazard that needs to be addressed before someone gets killed. Assuming no one has yet. Airbags will not operate when warning lights are on.

My vehilce has 39,00 miles on it. The service airbag light stays on. I contacted GM and they said no recalls at this time and to check back periodically. Therefore if we all have this problem then definitely there is a need for GM to check all of this out. And most of these vehicles has very low miles on them.

The airbag light lit up, the dealer checked it out and said it was the passenger seat occupancy sensor. Said it was the same one that was recalled on Cadillac cts but was T recalled on the Saturn ! I also check with the Cadillac dealership that the car came from and they said the same thing! I looked online and found this to be a common complaint, sent an E-mail to GM and received no response! thanks for any help. Gary witt 859-749-5290
