Question about Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

My 2002 Tahoe's airbag light came on during a short drive, stayed lit, also my Onstar was lit up in red as well (I no longer subscribe). After I turned off the car and started it again the light went off. Should I be concerned? Of course the dealer wants me to bring it in and charge me a diagnositic fee but wondering if I need to?

Don't know but air bags have sensors behind front bumper, they do go bad, check online for sensor testing. and of course check all you fuses first.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car

{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

MY air baglight is going on in my 2002 taho, the dealer ship claims they can't find anything wrong with it, but it's going on for a reson

{: ) Normally, the airbag light will come on when you start your vehicle, and it will flash for a few seconds. Then the light should go out. This means the system is ready. This is the initial system check.
What is not normal is if it stays on after the system check or when the airbag lights come on while you are driving. That means a trouble was detected by the system and will request the airbag light on.Your airbag system may not function properly during this period.
However, if the conditions that set the fault no longer exist at one point or during a certain period, the system will automatically clear the warning light. This will also mean that your airbag system will work normally as expected.
If the dealer coudn't retrieve a code or unable to duplicate your concern, and find the system to be working as designed, certainly they will have to release your car. If you are the only witness and the problem still persists as you believe, your feedbacks on your next possible visit can be of great help in their diagnosis.
You can note down some other symptoms or instances of what actually transpired before or when the airbag light came on. For example, as when you move or adjust your seat, or when you put something underneath the seats, when you pulled the seatbelt, when you moved the steering wheel and pressed on the horn, or like when your rearview display is not normal, when you open the liftgate or hood, or does it come also with another warning light or message, and anything. The technician can only do shop tests, and he can't drive your car for so many days trying to duplicate the concern. It's always you with your vehicle most of the time, and driving on different road conditions.

Airbag light stay on 2003 chevy tahoe

The air bag light will remain illuminated if a fault has been detected in the air bag system.
The onboard computer will need to be interfaced with diagnostic equipment to read the fault.
This is also the only way to reset the light.
Good luck, I hope this helped.

Airbag Light Stays On on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport

Looks like a bad clock spring.Don't try to make this repair unless you know what you're doing!! If the airbag blows during the process,let's just say it'll ruin your day & probably the next week. I'm a chrysler master tech,so heed my warning please. I'd tell ya how to do it but I'll get sued if you get hurt.
