My service air bag light came on in my 2009 Impala, and I took vehice to my dealer. The dealer said that the left front seat side air bag needed to be replaced. I am concerned why this air bag would need full replacement all of a sudden.
Airbag issue since I purchased this vehicle from the gsa in February 2015. Picked up the vehicle in brownsville texas and the airbag light was on. Digital indicator requested that the airbag system be serviced. Never had the system checked until today 8/29/2015 by my mechanic. Found that there are melted wires under the passenger seat. Affecting the airbag system operability.
Service air bag light came on periodically, then stayed on. Went to jeff wyler dealership(shelbyville, ky). Was told there was corrosion in cable. Repaired a $98. 00 diagnostic fee plus parts. Was first given option of not repairing, as they forgot to tell me about the diagnostic fee, or repair at cost of fee. Was repaired on June 18, 2015. On 7/12/15, light came back on. Is not staying on long enough for me to take to the nearest dealership in eminence, ky. Jeff wyler closed its local dealership. Called gm yesterday. No recalls for my VIN #. I am concerned.

When adjusting the steering wheel the service airbag light would come on. Now it comes on quite often while driving.

I contacted chev service to inquire why my "service air bag" light came on when my vehicle had not been in an accident. They stated that no recalls were currently in place for air bags and they would cover the diagnosis cost to find out what the issue was. The service department called and said the "seat belt tensioner bracket was defective and needed replace" they also stated they had no of knowing if the air bags or seat belts would deploy in the event of an accident without replacing the defective seat belt tensioner bracket. It would seem to me that if this situation is true (safety restraint system can be rendered ineffective without notice) that possibly the situation should be looked into. The "service air bag" indicator was coming on and off by itself so I originally did not worry too much about it until it came on and stayed on. Imagine my surprise when the gm service department stated that I could have driving around with no safety restraint system. Imagine also my surprise when Chevrolet customer service did not seem to see the urgency of who knows how many vehicles are out there with a potentially useless safety restraint system. Please use your position or respect to pursue this issue and find out if there is a safety concern. Thank you. I have case file numbers and more information if you require.
I bought the car a few weeks later the air bag light comes on. It comes on and turns off at random times. I have called the dealer and they said there is no recalls for it. I also looked online and there is many more people having the same problem with there air bag system.
Service air bag light randomly comes on. Warring can be erased by pushing the reset button so you continue to view information window. Moving driver seat back or forward can something erase the warring. Dealer could not tell if driver side air bag is working when the warring light is on, go figure! repair could be thousands of dollars. Why are air bags not covered for a 100,000 miles or 10 years like emission components? after all air bag systems are safety issues and emissions are not! I will just drive the vehicle as is.

Service air bag light came on. Had the car scanned to find out it was a passenger side air bag. Now on 6/2/15 I am getting another service air bag light, but after I shut the car off, and turn it back on, the light does not come back on. The dealer tells me that until it stays on, they can not scan it. I am not very confident in the airbag system. I have been told by a technician that if one airbag is not functioning right the whole air bag system shuts down. Scary!.
Air bag light came on in may 2, 2014, and an email was received by the owner (me) that they should have a oil change- they did that and at the same time they told the person in the autonations garage that the air bag light comes on and they came back with a check up and said it was the sensor for the air bag rubbing on the seat belt and ruined it. Causing possible injuries to person/persons in the moving vehicle if an accident ever occured. This was then taken care of by autonations garage with "thomas asm" & the tech was "pete" ! amount for replacement $445. 07 vehicle had just run out of warranty! oil change along with tire alignment and other check ups that day came to $ 735. 63 .

I have had numerous problems with my 2009 Impala. From the very beginning with only 100+ miles on it and the problems continue today. The dash will say reduced engine power and as I was going down the road at 55 miles an hour my car just shut off. I was able to get it to the side of the road and just sat there wondering what was going on. It wouldn't do anything, it was just completely off. I was about to call for aaa and tried one more time and it started. This happened again in November of 2013 as well and I was going 45 on a country rd. Again I was able to pull to the side and sat there and waited again. When this happens the car will do nothing. I have problems with my traction control, making a strange grinding type noise and bogs the car down from moving when I am trying to accelerate from a stop or trying to turn either left or right. I have had problems with my air bag lights coming on and telling me to service my air bags. It comes on and goes off and comes on and goes off. The dash light will come on and tell me to shut engine off now for low oil pressure, this has happened for 4 years, the car is 5 years old. This car was never a good car from the very day it came off the lot.

My Impala has a very bad electrical problem. My air bag light has been on and the manual said it can deflate at any given time. My wipers half the time don't want to come on or work. My horn and alarm sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. The car shakes really bad when I drive it, especially the steering wheel. It also burns oil like crazy. I trust my 99' chevy suburban over my brand new 09' Impala. It is the most dangerous car I have ever had and I wish I never would have bought it. It definitely has triple the amount of problems then my 99' suburban had.

Both my husband and myself have 2009 Impalas. They both have issues with the airbag lights coming on and off. Has anyone else experienced problems?.
The air bag light illuminated . We took the vehicle to GMC -Buick dealer who said there was a problem with seatbelt anchor assembly and has had a recall. They said the car had been in for the recall id # 89931 and had been checked. We did not own the vehicle at that time. We bought the vehicle on 8/ 31/11 from a different dealership. We had owned the vehicle only 6 weeks when the problem arose. We don't know if problem was ever solved or if the trouble was just cleared. The light was off when we left the dealership this time. We believe if problem was properly repaired on the recall there would not be a problem at this time. This dealer (young- Buick GMC) of owosso, mi said the cost of the repair is $190. 79. We don't think that we should have to pay for this repair because it was a recall and the problem still exist. Evidenty the problem still exists it must of not been fixed properly.

Airbag light remains on -will go out and then reappear . Never know when it will go out . Remains on most of the time regardless of conditions. Senior and cannot afford a major repair bill, auto companys should be liable for repairs of federal mandated safety equipment. Our goverment has failed us again. Car has never been damaged or abused . Now has 67000 miles. If a accident occurrs , will the airbags I paid for work? if not, contact my lawyer!.
