Wiring harness has corrosion in it up near the firewall. Appears that the wiring harness was defective (damaged) during the assembly process. Corrosion on ground side of air bag arming circuit means that in a collision the air bag will not deploy. Dealer says that this is not a warranty item. Corrosion in the air bag arming circuit could also cause it to deploy when it should not, leading to an accident. Isn't there unlimited warranty on safety systems and pollution control systems?
