60 problems related to air bag light on have been reported for the 2009 Chevrolet Impala.
At around 140,000 miles I noticed my service airbag light coming on and off. Overtime it continued turning on and off staying on more frequent than being off. I brought it to the dealership for a recall that affected the airbags. They told me they just had to wrap some wires that go underneath the seat and that was it. However this did not turn my airbag light off and I have gotten no help from any dealership or online forums. I believe chevy should recall this as many other individuals with Impalas are experiencing the same issue. As to the seat problem. Where my seat comes together at the low back, it shifts and moves around. The dealership said they could fix it at $900. They said they would have to find a new seat and then put my cushions and upholstery on it.
Approx 2 weeks after having a recall repair completed for passenger presence sensor 36110, my airbag light is on. Now the dealer wants to charge me $250 to clean connectors. How would they get dirty? dlr says they have to remove both fronts seats to do this repair. I never had an airbag light prior to the recall repair.

We brought vehicle in for recall for wiring harness repair back in August because airbag light was on. Dealership wrapped the wires. 3 weeks later airbag light was on again. Brought back to dealership and they told us wires were damaged and wiring connector need to be replaced which was not part of recall. Paid $329. When I read recall online, it clearly states the wires should be inspected before applying the tape and if not wiring should be replaced for no charge. I filed complaint with gm and they contacted dealership who still says wires are not part of recall. Advised word for word of recall and no have to go to dealership with paperwork. My child is driving this car and was told by the dealership this is not a safety issue and we could have left it as is. Really?.
Chev recall #16v507000 reported a problem with the air bag sensor on the passenger seat side. I reported that I had the recall notice but that I also had the same problem with the air bag but on the driver side. When the air bag light came on, I could get it to turn off by moving the driver's seat back and forth and/or up and down. This seems to be the same type of problem reported in the recall for the passenger seat. At the dealership,the car computer verified the driver side air bag problem. When I took the care in for the recall, they checked the passenger seat wiring under warranty but charged me $130. 12 to get the driver's seat wiring fixed. They said the recall was only for the passenger seat. Seems gm doesn't care if the driver gets killed or injured.

I took my car to auto mall in brattleboro vt for the recall 36110 passenger seat occupant sensing. They had it all day said they fixed it but the airbag light is on and it still doesn't sense anyone in the passenger side seat. They also gave me a list of 9 codes that my car now has but didn't back in June 3 of which I know about tire and dead battery in my remote and my actuator door, the rest all have to do with electric issues. I think stemming from the original recall. I wouldn't pay 90. 00 to have it coded again so I looked up the codes myself and they are all loop open circuit and one is second row seat belt pretensioner deployment control. Seems to me that there is more than wrapping the wires is going to fix, I think it all has to do with the recall but they refuse to do anything. I don't even know what they did wrap or change the housing?? my codes are as follows b0223 b3060 b3031 b1325/3 b0074 c0755 boo1b/4 b0021/04. Help please all I want iis to be able to get my car inspected. As I said I had no codes until this started when the same dealer changed my pps module back a few months ago which was a recall too. When my abs light came on and traction control and loss of power. After auto mall fixed that the airbag light came on. They had the nerve to ask if I had mice living in my car. . .

Service air bag light is on at 64000 miles. Looks like chevy needs to fix the problem. Went to the dealer and they have tried numerous things. Keep getting told to come back it could be this one other thing.
Airbag service message and airbag light goes on and off. Paid 269. 36 4/22/2016 so it would pass state inspection. Light stayed off for about two months, now it is giving us the same problem. Returned to dealer, said cost to repair with new harness in the drivers seat would be around 250. 00 more. The general has a huge problem here.
There has been an consent issue occurring with my vehicle's airbag light coming on. Every time I take it to the dealership I pay $100 for a diagnostic test for them to tell me they are unsure of the issue, but they reset the system for the light to turn off. 4 to 6 months goes by and the light comes on "again". As of right now I do not feel safe that my vehicle will protect me down the highway and I would like and investigation to be opened. Thank you for your time and concern. Have a great day.
