problem #1

Jun 102003

ES 300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 35,000 miles
Air bag light comes on, airbags will not deploy in the event of an accident, dealer attributes the light coming on to a loose wire located under driver's seat. This has been occurring since 2003 at about 35,000 miles. The vehicle now has 70,000 miles and the light continues to come on, I feel my safety is in jeopardy every time this light comes. After repeated visits to the dealer this problem continues.
