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 air bag light on dash indicates problem with passenger sensor. I was driving with my grandson who weighs about 110 pounds and suddenly the light came on. This is alarming since I don't know if there was a collision, it would prevent the air bag from deploying and my passenger would not be protected. Upon searching the internet it is obvious that this is a common problem with the Saturn Sky and should be recalled since it impacts the safety of the occupants. The sensor is a think plastic circuit which is located under the seat covering and gets worn out. Totally unacceptable and seems that General Motors would want to address this issue to prevent loss of life and potential law suits.

This is in reference to the faulty air bag sensor in the seats of the Saturn Sky's and Pontiac solstice. A known defect in the air bag sensor in the seats is leading to an expensive fix for GM owners. The "service air bag" light illuminates due to a faulty craftsmanship in the seat sensor. This could possibly cause the airbag system to not function properly. It is a widespread problem with these cars and really started to take place for a lot of people after the ignition recall. The replacement part and labor is costing around $900 for the repair of one seat when the parts can be ordered form germany for around $80. GM knows and really needs to address this issue before this malfunction causes some type of bodily harm.

Got the ignition switch replaced and now the service air bag light wont go off. This results in the passenger side seat and should be a recall!!! the car is not safe to drive with anyone in the car because the air bags will not deploy. I never had this issue until I got the ignition recalled.

The vehicles air bag warning light appeared in my dash upon starting my vehicle today. The passenger seat is not registering that someone is sitting in the seat. According to GM {owner of the late Saturn)the passenger airbag will not deploy if I were to get into an accident while the light is illuminated and quoted me almost $1,100 to fix it. My friends Sky is doing the same thing, everyone seems to be driving around with faulty airbag systems! how is this not a safety issue? recall!
