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.

Passenger side front air bag warning light indicates air bag not functional. Occurs at random times, will stay that way for days or weeks, then revert to normal. Sometimes at same time fan goes to high, air conditioning goes on, or floor/air dial switches to all defrost, or emergency lights switch on. Dealership said the problem was malfunctioning weight lever in seat, couldn't explain the rest of it, and they never did anything to try to fix it. However, it seems to be electronic issue as it sometimes works.
