Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I am getting a service airbag reading on my instament cluster but have not hit anything or have any reason to make this happen. I wouldn't care about it other than the fact it reads out over my odometer reading. Any clue how to clear this out?
The most common cause of this light is an open circuit in the coiled ribbon contact to the steering wheel airbag, it is under the steering wheel, it looks like a clock-spring and it always the steering wheel to move while maintaining a physical electrical connection to the airbag module on the steering wheel, after thousands of times of coiling and un-coiling it breaks and then the airbag diagnostic monitor senses the open electrical circuit and turns the light on. U must disarm the airbag to remove the steering wheel to replace this contact, if this is not done the airbag can fire and cause serious injury.
