On your Suburban. The AIR BAG light can come on.
For a Lots of PROBLEMS.
But it has the funtion to go OFF it self.

The First Step to do are.
1 - Determinate if you was not. on accident in the Vehicle.
if yes. Check the Front impact sensor. Under the lower Rad support. If is damaged replace.

2-- Remember if you Did a Clean up on your car. Removin the
Seats. If yes .. Check the seat belt Bucklet. ( seat belt recievers)

3- Check all the connection under the Seats.

If everything is OK..

I recomend take the car to any Autorepair shop to be Scanned with the Respective Diagnostic computer.
To see exactly what is the problem.

OK.. I hope this help to try diagnostic your vehicle.
Thank you for use fixya...

I would be willing to bet there is a bad air bag sensor somewhere.

My 1996 GMC Suburban has 170600 miles on it. In the last week, it drives fine until you travel about 1/4 mile & reach 30 mph. Then, you loose acceleration. When you push the gas, the engine just revs....

Try dropping the tranny fluid and changing the tranny filter and filling with fresh fluid. Sounds like the tranny is sleeping between shifts.

Air bag remove 98 gmc sonoma

It's unlikely the turn signal switch. Try disconnecting the switch mounted directly above the brake pedal. If the light turns off the problem is in the brake switch. They commonly go bad and can be picked up at a gm dealer for about $15.
