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.

SRS light flashes. The yellow connector under the passenger side seat is the culprit. There are hundreds of incidents on this on the auto forums. Many have commented that Toyota knows about the problem. Please investigate. This is a safety issue and Toyota should do a full safety recall to solve the problem. Thank you.

My vehicle's safety restraint ( airbag) light on the dash came on and I took it to the dealer for analysis. They told me the entire restraint system would have to be rewired at a cost of $4000. Without it, I have no airbags. This should be a recall item, not the responsibility of the car owner.

The airbag light comes on and stays on when the vehicle is turned on. If the vehicle is turned off then back on, sometimes the light turns off. Other times, moving the connectors under the front seats causes it to turn off.

Driver air bag light is flashing at any speed and when standing. I check online, there were 13 same reported cases. Some said there was recall on this problem, but I have never received notice of recall from Toyota. Please let me know. This is a safety issue!

The airbag warning light on my 2007 Sienna started flashing. The Toyota dealer diagnosed the problem as a failure in the wiring harness of the airbag system under the driver's seat. The dealer installed updated air bag connectors and pig-tail harness as per tsb. Dealer's charge: $337.39. A review of the NHTSA database of complaints for this model and year shows 12 similar complaints out of a total of 173, as of 9/12/2013. Given the critical nature of this equipment, the need for it to operate in an emergency and the frequency of this failure it should be considered a safety issue. The manufacturer should either recall affected vehicles or make this repair at no cost to the owner.

Upon starting up the vehicle the drivers side airbag indicator began blinking instesd of going out. Called dealership who said it would be $60-$115 just to look at it and he couldn't imagine what it was. After looking online and seeing the high cost of repair and the number of complaints I will be taking to an independant mechanic to get his thoughts. Vehicle has not been in an accident so I do not feel as if this is a component that should go bad. And if it does the consumer should not have to pay for repair as this is a safety component.

Started vehicle and the air bag SRS light began flashing.the light flashed for about 2 weeks then went out. About 1 week later it began flashing again.the last couple of weeks it has been on and will be off 2days or so then flash for a day or two. It was off yesterday but on today. I have researched the problem on line and found many people with the same problem. I have not been to a dealer because of the high cost many people are being quoted to repair the problem. Some people had their cars repaired only to find the problem return.I am very concerned about this safety problem. When it flashes, is it operational? we may be driving our cars without air bag protection.

Had 2007 Sienna serviced for blinking air bag light at Toyota dealership. Service dept. Stated that the sensor needed to be cleaned; charge was roughly $100 as the vehicle was over the 60,000/5 yr warranty. On 05/29/2012 car was serviced again for blinking air bag light; however, service dept. Stated that the light was not blinking at the time the car was serviced, so the problem could not be assessed. The air bag light came on again for the third time and we were informed that the wire on the passenger side needed to be replaced at a cost of $1,100. Funny how the light keeps coming on, but the problem could never be assessed, and now it costs $1,100 to fix. Needless to say, we are not having it fixed and we pray for no accidents--pretty scary. We have had nothing but problems with this vehicle and we will never purchase another Toyota.
