The airbag system will need to be serviced by the dealership or a body shop that is capable of servicing that vehicle.

You need a special scan tool to access that codes on that vehicle.

With the huge increase in electronics, some of them not that well designed, it isn't uncommon to receive a warning in error. Check your owner's guide for instructions on resetting warning lights and try it. If it resets the light and it doesn't return, it was a hiccough, not an equipment problem. If it does reset but comes back again, it's time for service and air bags are fussy widgets; don't try troubleshooting it yourself, you may cause it to go off without reason. BTW, these things are very costly when replaced and a favorite for thieves to steal.

SOURCE: air bag light

there is a wire that is attached via your seatbelt latch that runs under the seat.
It will make a "DING" sound when the seatbelt is unlatched and the the door is open.
Find the wire and pull it out then complete the circuit by wrapping the 2 wires together and maybe throw a little tape on em!
Bam !!!
prob solved.

Or you could just pull the fuse for that sensor. haha

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.

Under the front seats you have wires going to your seat belt anchors.These wires are atached to a sensor witch activate the air bags if the anchors have force pull on them.The wires have plugs under the seat.Disconnect the plugs and spray with electical cleaner and replace.Make sure the ignition is switched off befor you attemt doing.90%of the time this will work.good luck.

Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop ,there is nothing a DIYER can or should try to do for air bag systems. Right away you thing air bag , could be a wiring problem , bad controller , a sensor etc.. People have been killed by air bags deploying , not knowing how test the system .

Serivce air bags light came on


There are a number of reasons why the Service Air Bag light came on. Keep in mind, when the light is on, the air bags are disabled in the event of a crash. It is best to have it scanned and repaired by a reputable repair shop.

Sensor light come on after brake replacement


Yes and NO...it could be the wheel sensor was not hooked up or damaged during the brake servicing....but the air bag problem is probably not related...a proper diagnosis would require that the codes be retrieved from the computer then go from there.

Check engine light , check suspension


My towncar is doing the same. It actually started about 6 months ago with the fuel light, which turned out to be no problem, just some air in the line. My air bags did go out last week, so it looks like I have a low rider right now:) I'm in the process of converting from air bags to springs. I had the back airbags replaced but then the dang compressor went out and I don't have the money to replace that. The check air suspension light will stay on right before you have to replace the airbags. Turn your car off then on and if it takes a little while for the light to come back on you have a few weeks to go before it goes out completely. Oh and it is a real easy fix. Its gonna cost about 200 bucks for each airbag, but if you convert it to spring it will cost about 150 in parts.

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.
