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.

Airbag light came on. Dealer said there was a problem with the airbag spiral cable that makes the airbag work. They said they have a lot of these that they have replaced. They said it should be a recall, and not the customer's responsibility. Part # 84306-04080 cable sub- assy, spir I kept the old part.

I was driving my 2006 Toyota Tacoma when airbag warning light went on. This was brought to the dealer immediately the next day and diagnosis is failed spiral cable. The spiral cable senses more than the airbag and includes the steering wheel, horn, and cruise control. Cost of replacement is $603.31.

2006 Toyota Tacoma SR5 dbl cab, 6 cyl, 4.0 eng. 65K miles, 2 wheel drive, automatic transmission: Driver side airbag light turned on and stays on. I have searched the internet for info. On it and have found a lot of people have been having this problem. I had it reset by a couple of different shops and the light comes back on. Going by the info. Found on line, from google to newsgroups. The Toyota dealers are just charging for the same work done and not admitting a product defect. I am taking mine to the dealer and is $117 just to diagnose it.. and I know this takes them 10 min or less to hook it up to the computer and get the error codes printed. We the consumers need some help. And I and I'm sure everyone else that has been having this problem would greatly appreciate if someone can look into it. I know there is a recall for the side curtain airbags.. but I don't think mine is equipped with those. I have even read that there have been instances where the bag deploys for no reason, while the truck is been driven with that light on.. I'm guessing not all of us can afford having this corrected as soon as the light turns on. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Air bag light stays on. I have owned 5 Toyota and my air bag light has never come on. Took vehicle to Toyota of redlands, calif on 1/28/2020 for check. They reported that the spiral cable has failed. Cost to replace $523. As I stated I have owned 5 Toyota and have never had this problem. I believe thepart to be defective and it should be investigated by your organization. Toyota should be made to replace defective air bag system parts up to 100K miles of a vehicle. Can you tell me if there has been many problems of this nature reported and if so do I have any recourse with Toyota. Thank you.

They were going to speak with the dealer, they never contacted me in any way. Dealer called and said Toyota motor Corp. Would not take care of problem.
