Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My security light stays on 24/7 thus my battery is drained every day on my 02 avalanche. My air bag blew by itself last year. Im Guessing it has something to do with that. Also my gas gauge and stereo quit working. Does anyone know how I can fix this myself? I don't have the money to take it to a shop.

If your 02 Avalanche had an airbag blast last year, I would run it back to the dealer and see, if there is any way possible, whether it is one of the potentially faulty airbags made by Takata. General Motors installed some Takata airbags in some of their vehicles and since this goes back as far as 10 or more years ago, it is possible that you may have had one of the early versions of the airbag installed originally. If that is the case and since the airbag is not supposed to blow up by itself, I would suspect that any issues that arose from the blast should also be covered by the warranty work. It is not unreasonable to ask the factory to replace the parts destroyed by a device that is supposed to stay put until the bumper is hit with sufficient force to cause it to deploy.

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.

Sorry to say, but none of these are related. Fuel gauge is probably the sending unit in the tank, could be wiring. The air bag could be the module,the bag unit, the sensors, or bad wiring. The radio is probably your most likely choice for battery drain. The three main things I have found to drain batteries are the radio, the starter, and the alternator. These three will kill a new battery in 1 to 2 days, An older battery over night. Shorts in the interior lighting is 4th..

Service air bag light is on


take it to the dealer... or check all that junk that may be shoved under the seats if your car has (smart air bags). some newer vehicles have sensors under the seats that can be disturbed when you shove stuff under the front seats. there are hundreds of possible problems when that light comes on. BTW when that light comes on it shuts off your air bag system to prevent an unintended deployment so you are driving with non functioning air bags if that light is staying on. it rechecks itself every few seconds.

2004 Avalanche "Service Air Bag


First, please review this article: Where's The Fuse?

I seriously doubt that your problem is being caused by a fuse. Your Passive Restraint System has a problem. This could be caused by a driver's airbag, a passenger airbag, a seat belt pre-tensioner, a contact assembly in the steering column, or any of the crash sensors. To find out what the problem is, you must scan your Passive Restraint (or Airbag) module to retrieve fault codes. The only thing I can tell you for sure without properly diagnosing your vehicle is that your airbag system will not function in the event of a crash. The system is designed to disable itself any time the warning light is illuminated. This is to prevent accidental deployment of the airbags due to a malfunction in the system.
