    Transport Canada Issues Pontiac Solstice/Saturn SKY Passenger Seat Sensor Recall

    Transport Canada beats the NHTSA to the recall punch.

    Transport Canada Recall Details:
    http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/...rchResult&pg=0


    Recall Date 2017/01/27
    Notification Type Safety TC
    System Airbag
    Manufacturer Recall Number 17036
    Units Affected The number of vehicles or components affected by the recall. 7,143

    Recall Details
    On certain vehicles, over time, the flexible sensor mat of passenger airbag suppression system (PPS) within the passenger seat can bend and become damaged. If this were to occur, the damage can potentially cause the PPS module to suppress the front passenger airbag during a crash. If fault exists in the PPS system and the vehicle is involved in a crash where airbag deployment is warranted, the front passenger airbag may not deploy, which if an adult is occupying the passenger seat, could increase the risk of injury to the occupant. Correction: To be determined. Note: If an active fault exists in the PPS system, the airbag malfunction-indicator lamp will illuminate and the passenger airbag telltale will indicate that the airbag is off. Additionally, the driver information center will display a “Service Airbag” message, and the audio system will play an audible warning chime.
    Make Model Model Year(s) Affected
    PONTIAC SOLSTICE 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010
    SATURN SKY 2007 2008 2009

    Primary credit for this recall is Solstice forum member Robotech. Robotech took it upon himself to research the number of passenger seat sensor failures, compiled the statistics, and then petition the NHTSA (and stayed on top of them) to study Kappa seat sensor failure rates. This recall will also save owners several hundred dollars for the cost of repair.

    No word yet on when NHTSA will issue a recall notice for the states (or Europe and South America), but they have issued a recall number, however no remedy has been established.
