    I too am having this issue with my 2004 CTS, however it is the passenger side rear cover that came loose. I have tried to correct it myself, but the "service airbag" message continuously needs clearing from the info panel. Looks like it's back to the garage...

    My 2005 CTS "service airbag light" just came on today. I have 74,000 miles. The dealer wanted $818.00 to fix. I would really like a more reasonable solution.

Did you get this car new and if it is under warranty take it back
pushing the cover back on can pinch the bag and cause it not to work
this could cause the light to come on
have it checked and take great caution when putting cover on cause it can activate the airbag and cause damage to you

Airbag light on


B 1811. Open in driver side squib, 2nd step circuit.
The driver's side seat belt circuit is open. Remove the driver's side pillar cover, and look at the connector attached to the reel. Clean it with contact cleaner and place it back. If it does not solve the problem check the harness wiring for damage or broken wire.

The covers to both rear airbags have come loose and are sticking out---do the simply snap back on or is there some other way to reattach them


The airbags should fit back into a groove within the leather from where they are coming out. To be on the safe side, prior to pushing them back in, remove the negative battery cable and wait about 10 mins to let the residule power drain to avoid having the bag go off during the process.

Feedback appreciated.

The interior lights will not come on when you open either front door but work fine on the rear doors.


check the pin switches where the front doors meet the B-pillar they get stuck from getting slightly bent from regular use or getting gunk in them look at the one on the drivers door first you may need to remove the plastic cover on the inside of the B-pillar to get to the wiring unplug it and shut the door then open the passenger door and see if the lights come on if they do then the driver side switch is bad if not do the same thing on the passenger side.If the lights start working then the one on the passenger side is bad.
good luck.
