'service air bag' light 2005 yukon

My 2005 yukon is displaying 'service air bag.' I checked the website and couldn't find a cause or fix. Any ideas?

Also, my drivers seat 'jars' back and forth for a few moments after I put the vehicle in park and open the door (the seat is programmed to slide back when I exit)...thoughts?

SOURCE: rear heat in 2004 gmc

I have a 2006 yukon and have had to replace the actuator in the rear heat/ac twice.  It moves a valve that closes the cold/hot ducts.  It is a cheap defective part/design.

It sounds like one or more of the release cables came undone from your lever. Lift the lever, inspect all around it, look under the seat where the track is. There should be a small round cable that runs from your handle down to the release. Also there may be a thin wire that runs from the left side to the right side. If you find it and reconnect it you should be golden.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2005 Yukon Denalli - Blow cold air out the drivers side

the passenger side electronic controller is sensing the passenger side temperature is cooler than it really is, which causes the controller to increase the hot water flow to warm up the passenger area...any time you replace a battery or loose your charge, the HVAC module will need to be reset...Try this...
Remove your hvac fuse for 10 sec - reinstall fuse. Start engine "DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING FOR 3 MINUTES" Recalibration of module will accure when power is lost (fuse pulled, battery changed or died) If hvac reset did not work you have a trouble code - reset BCM There are two ways to reset your body control module Go to the GENERAL Remove BOTH battery cables (for the sake of CAUTION remove air bag fuse and wait 5 MINUTES) Hold both cables together for 1 minute - drains KAM (keep alive memory). Put everything back together Start the engine "DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING FOR 3 MINUTES" If you have no broken parts - system not default (normal operation)

If that works it just saved you 600 costs to repair.

Good Luck...please rate me a fixya.

Trying to find out if there is a common problem with the air bag in my 2005 gmc sierra. the service air bag light is on. also trying to find out what the approx. cost at the dealership would be to fix...

Air bags require periodic maintenance, the light means it is due for service or not functioning correctly in which case it will not deploy in an accident. You can take it to any dealer or garage and they can service it and reset the light. no idea on the cost of repair. good-day!

Service air bag came. How do I reset it?

You will need an OBDII scanner to reset that light. Chances are resetting it will not keep it off. The crash sensors on that car are prone to going bad right around 5 years. My 05 Tahoe had an airbag light on because of a bad passenger side crash sensor. The light can also be caused by a bad clock spring in the steering wheel as well. You'll also need the scanner to tell you exactly what the problem is. Most auto parts stores will scan the car for free. Good luck.

Air bag light

The airbag system will need to be serviced by the dealership or a body shop that is capable of servicing that vehicle.

You need a special scan tool to access that codes on that vehicle.
