YOUR VEHICLE HAS DETECTED A FAULT IN THE AIRBAG CIRCUIT IT WILL HAVE TO HAVE CODE RETRIEVAL DONE TO DETERMINE WHAT CAUSE LIGHT TO STAY ON,I URGE YOU TO DO THIS SOON AS WHEN AN AIRBAG SYSTEM HAS GIVEN A FAULT CODE AND TURNED ON THE LIGHT THE SYSTEM IS DIABLED AND WILL NOT PROVIDE PROTECTION IN ACCIDENT

First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

a little tip a friend gave me in unlocking the 4wd drive on ramps or hill and then put in neutral let roll back a foot put in park and then let off the 4wd
when in 4wd the hubs get a little heated cause they need greased so they stick into position making it hard to come out of 4wd this which i spoke of i got stuck in the senerio where i almost drove home in 4wd from 300 miles away but i called my friend he told me bought this and so i thought it could help you
your hubs just locked up on you your bearings are going to need to be packed again this is normal for this

SOURCE: Our service airbag light came
Hello and welcome. this light comes on to warn you that there is a problem with the air bag system. when this light comes on, the air bag control module will store a trouble code, this code is used to help isolate the problem. what you will need to do first, is have the air bag system scanned for trouble codes. then a repair can be made on the system

Without having the fault codes scanned in the Sensing and Diagnostics Module (SDM, also known as the Air Bag Module), its impossible to know for sure why the light is on, unless you physically see a fault.
Usually after a steering shaft has been replaced, if proper service procedures are not followed, the clockspring in the column gets broken, but it does not appear this is the case, since the job hasn't been performed.
The next step, if you don't want to take it to ge the codes scanned, is to inspect under the seats for loose connections. On these trucks, there is usually a seat position sensor attached to the seat track (what the seat slides on). On the drivers side, its located on the outside of the right hand seat rail, towards the front (kinda up against the center console if it has buckets). Often times the retaining clip breaks preventing the connector from staying on the sensor. they may be a similar sensor on the passenger side, also attached to its seat track rail.
If nothing is found, and you have side airbags (air bag in the side of the seat back) inspect the connections for them as well, usually accessable from behind under the seat).
If all that checks out, you may have high resistance in one of the connectors. I reccomend you unplug the battery and wait 10 minutes before carrying out the next step. After 10 minutes, Look for any Yellow connectors under the dash. Every yellow connector you find (yellow connectors are air bag connectors), unplug and plug back in 5 times each. There is also one behind the front kick panels, driver and passenger side. If there is resistance in one of these connectors, cycling the connector multiple times will restore the connection. Once all the connectors have been cycled, reconnect the battery and recheck the system.
If none of this works, you will have to take it to a shop and have the SDM scanned to help narrow down the failed component.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
