MY VEHICLE ALL OF A SUDDEN BEGAN GIVING ME A PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG CENSOR ERROR. NO ACCIDENTS OCCURRED IT JUST OUT OF THE BLUE APPEARED. I HAD TO TAKE MY Forester TO THE SUBARU DEALERSHIP TO BE SERVICED WHERE THEY CONFIRMED THAT THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE PASSENGER AIR BAG.
Slowly pulling straight into parking spot at grocery store. Applied brake when car suddenly accelerated. I was able to control steering, but brakes would not work. Steered car into empty parking spot in front of me then turned hard right to avoid hitting parked cars in row across. Subaru hit a pick up truck that was reversing out of a diagonal parking spot. The car didn't stop upon impact, instead both right side wheels climbed up the side of truck at an angle. Air bags didn't deploy on impact. This was a very dangerous situation. The acceleration was uncontrollable and i am afraid to drive the car.
The passenger airbag sensor is defective. Often, when there is someone sitting in the passenger seat, the light will show that the airbag is off. There is also a warning light telling us to get the airbag checked. In contrast, the sensor will say that the airbag is on when there is no one sitting in the passenger seat. We took the car to the subaru dealership on 8. 8. 19 and were told they could not find anything wrong. We were advised to just assume that the airbag works correctly, even though the car is telling us there is a problem.
