Air bag warning light on. Dealer says the seat belt needs to be replaced due to a bad sensor in it. I was told they see this problem a lot on this model. I have also been told the bags won't deploy in an accident unless this is fixed. I simply cannot afford it and the car is out of warranty.

While driving this morning my passenger seat belt warning light was flashing, I was the only one in the car. I had a 20 oz aquafina bottle of water sitting in the passenger seat. The passenger airbag light was illuminated on and car was wanting the seat belt buckled. I have two small children and the thought of the airbag deploying because the seat sensor for the airbag thought there was a person sitting there is very disturbing.

Car stalled on the interstate. Merged car to break down lane without being hit. Traction control light illuminated. Car would not restart for about 20 minutes.

At about 50000 miles the rear door actuator began to work intermittently. Within months it did not work at all. The dealer said it was expensive to fix. At about 66000 miles the service air bag warning light began to come on intermittently. At 68000 miles I took it to the dealer who diagnosed the problem as an actuator. I replaced it at a cost of $400. He said I could replace the rear door actuator for another $400 which I elected not to do. When I saw a news article about an elderly, disabled man trapped in his Chevrolet Impala because of a defective door lock actuator, I realized that this might be a frequent problem to be addressed.
Air bag service light came on dashboard of 2006 Chevrolet Impala. In addition to the red warning light indicating the air bag problem, message appears in message center on dashboard, saying to service air bag. My complaint is that the dealership says it might be close to $1000 to fix, yet airbags are supposed to last the life of a car. Yet, it will pass inspection if I chose to not get it looked at. I see hundreds of other cases where gm cars have the service air bag light on, and it should be covered by warranty or a recall to get this issue fixed. People are jeopardizing their safety, driving around with an air bag that may or may not work. It is not acceptable.

2009 chevy Impala 2lt the air bag warning light has illuminated on numerous occasions since buying the car new in January 2010. Currently the light has been on for 2 weeks straight with yet another dealer visit scheduled. This warning light when illuminated renders the rest of the electronic display useless since the "service airbag" display never goes off. The dealer service department has failed to fix the problem satisfactorily for the past 4 years despite the multiple times we have had it in for the air bag warning light issue. The problem always returns and the light will stay on from several minutes to weeks. Some of the explanations for returning the car to us without correcting the problem have been downright ridiculous. We have great concern about the safety of driving a vehicle with an ongoing airbag warning light issue. The vehicle only has 31,000 miles on it and has never been in an accident.

Shortly after purchasing the vehicle, electrical system and on-board computer issues started occurring: tire monitor system (tpms) in-op. Warnings randomly appearing in dash: check tire monitor system. Check left/right rear tire pressure. Tpms did not warn of a flat tire even though a significant amount of air was lost. Increasing no. Of issues with electrical system: keyless entry fails. Check airbag warning appears. Check a/c warning in dash. Ambient temperature gauge erratic. Compass showing n (or ne/NW but always incorrect heading). Cruise control will not resume at times or set incorrect speed (a few m/h higher or lower). Speed has increased on its own. Once, I noticed the speed at over 80m/h when I had set the cruise control at 70. Dash displaying warnings quickly and yellow warning lights flash briefly, which is extremely distracting and warnings cannot be read. Tpms light comes on routinely after driving for 1-3 hours. Warnings may flash at any time. Took the vehicle in six times at the request of gm. Some parts were replaced but electrical issues keep increasing and original issues cannot be fixed. Keyless entry working for now, after components were replaced twice. E-brake did not work when the vehicle was purchased. Though promised by delivery, car had to be taken in five times for e-brake to work modestly. I am not in possession of any old parts as repairs were performed under warranty.
