You will have to be very careful!!! There have been cases where the airbag lights come on because of an internal computer problem. If you go to your dealer, or maybe a local shop, they will have to hook it up to a computer to determine the problem. Not to get too excited, but some people have had the bag actually deploy, so I usually make that known to anyone I help with an airbag light. Hope all goes well, and please be safe.

How do you release a front passenger air bag in 2002 GMC Envoy

Are you looking to discharge and remove air bag or just remove from steering column

To remove air bag from steering column
Disconnect battery
Behind steering wheel there are four bolts tha hold bag on
They are tricky to see the bolt holes but their there tight spot
Now for the trick of wiring hopefully new style came with a release wire clip older style fed wires down column with release clip located under dash
Remove the key ignition box
The wires should be bright orange or yellow from air bag going threw column
If old style you will have to loosen turn signal indicators if wires run under mount
Once you get to end of wire clip
Use a sewing needle to push buds out of clip mark your the main side
Now for ease part
Tape a little 3 foot wire to the ends before pull completley threw this will help pull bud wires back down threw tutn indicator switch
Never force wire threw gently
Removing air bag hopefully made simple by quick release clip under horn press

My 2002 envoy will not lift back up

Sounds like the air bag pump went out. I replaced mine and got it on line and saved hundreds. It is located just behind the right rear wheel well just over the muffler.Hope this helps.

Hi, Purchased a Ford focus estate 1.6 TDCI 2007 six months ago. After two weeks I brought car in for a routine service new tyres, roof bars and a timing belt change and spent 1000 euro at the dealers. ...

pop into local scrap yard and get a crank position sensor, fit it and if it works DAH DAH.. its not always best to fit 2nd hand parts because of reliability. but there no way off testing it because its an intermittent fault. if it cures it buy a brand new one ( or keep 2nd hand one on til that goes )
