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 2012 Camry hybird with leather seats. My problem seems to be related to the weight of the previous occupant, ie, if over 200 lbs and it will probably work correctly. But if the exited occupant was less than 200 lbs, the air bag will alarm and message for the (former occupant) passenger to use the seat belt. I'm trying to get Toyota to correct the problem but they warn me that I may have to pay to correct something that never occured before their recall.

The contact owns a 2012 Toyota Camry. While the vehicle was parked, the seat belt warning light failed to illuminate. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The vehicle was previously repaired under NHTSA campaign number: 13V014000 (air bags, seat belts). The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 50,000.

When driving on a road and hitting a big pothole the SRS light in the dashboard might light up and stay on as well as the seat belt restraint light. The vehicle was brought once before to the service facility of Toyota and this issue got fixed, when I asked the service staff why is that happening the answer was: "if you drive in a big pot hole the connection to the sensor that is located underneath the front passenger seat might become loose which requires to be connected again and re-calibrated. While having this issue the front passengers airbag might not deploy as the light on the middle console states that the passenger airbag is currently turned off even if the passenger is sitting in the seat and is restraint. To me it sounds as a big safety issue which should not happen just because of a pot hole.

Noticed that the air bag light is on constantly, the seat belt light keeps flashing and the passenger air bag light is always off even if a heavy adult is sitting in it. The seat belt light keeps flashing always. Noticed this but thought as most times drive alone thought that as there is no passenger in the passenger seat most of the times and attributed the cause of the flashing seat belt light for that.but now know that this is definitely a safety issue.
