"service airbag" dashboard warning light goes on and off intermittently both when car is at rest or in motion, especially when the car goes over a bump or pothole.
My "service air bags" light kept coming on and then remaining on continually. I found a letter written by the director of customer & relationship services at chevy back in 2010 that addressed this problem and stated that "to enhance side impact protection, your gm dealers will update the wiring harness for both front seat side impact airbags. This service will be performed for you at no charge. " I contacted the dealer at messer chevy in lubbock, TX, and also customer service at chevy. I opened up case #8-2314213550 on 8/19/16, and I was told to get a diagnostics done at the dealer, which I did. I then found out the case had been arbitrarily closed the same day it was opened! now Chevrolet states that the case was reopened on 9/7/16. I just want the problem fixed free of charge since the previous owner should have taken care of this when chevy was offering the "soft recall" repair at no charge. Chevy called it a customer satisfaction program at the time to avoid an airbag recall media hype. I assume this isn't related to any takata airbag problem, but it is a potential safety hazard! I am getting the runaround from both Chevrolet and the dealer, and I just the problem resolved. The dealer turned off the warning light, but no repairs have been done to date!.
