SOURCE: 2002 gmc envoy xl air bag light is on

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.

There are several ways to fix this. On some of the Air ride models you can put in regular springs and replace the Air bags. To work with what you have, you need to diagnose the bad parts and then make your decisions.

Your Air ride has a diagnostic plug like the kind you hear about for the engine. You need to take it to a Body shop or Independent or even a Dealer and see what parts you car needs. Some Autozones and Oreillys might have this specialized scanner for the Air ride.

The Air pump can be obtained used at Salvage yards. So can the Suspension bags and any switches you need. Some yards are now giving 1 year free exchange warranties. Others are 30days to 90days. You will need a Repair shop who is willing to use Used parts. But you may not have a bad pump with the other problems you are having. You can even get rebuilt Air bags.

You can expect the pump to be slow if the air is being released as fast as the pump is putting it in. There is an electric switch in each corner of your car which can bleed off the air. You may only have 1 bad switch. This is why an accurate Diagnosis is important to saving you money.

If anyone has jacked up your car without turning off the Air ride, it is very easy to throw the switches out of adjustment. You may only need to adjust and not replace the switches. The adjustment procedure needs to be done on a surface like the body shops use. This would be a verified flat surface or a Frame machine. If you had one wheel sagging it would be pretty easy to work on the one side. But with your symptoms it could be anything.

About the only thing you can do is look under the car while it is running and listen for escaping air. It is not going to be easy with the engine and pump running.

Have a 2002 gmc envoy, i need rear air bags, how much should i expect to pay

I wouldn't waste the time, money and patience replacing the compressor and/or air bags. It normally turns out to be both as they both wear out over time. I've been there and done that. I just had the system converted to "old school" shocks and springs.

All the best,

Where is 2002 gmc envoy airbag module located???

There is a module that controls the air bags called the SDM Sensing and Diagnostic Module, but the air bags themselves are called modules. If they are referring to the SDM...


(1) Lower Console
(2) Inflatable Restraint Sensing and Diagnostic Module (SDM)

Removing rear air suspension on GMC Envoy

Just behind right rear tire up in the wheel well. Air inlet is inside right rear quarter near the accessory inflator. Compressor runs 3 lines one for the accessory inflator and one for each air bag.
THere are also 2 sensors, one on each trailing arm that senses load and then raises and lowers accordingly.
