While on a trip the passenger air bag warning light came on while driving on highways while on vacation. This happened in may 2016 and also may 2015 while on vacation. I checked on line and it states the air bag is disabled when the learning light comes on. On line it stated back in 2004-up through 2012 they had several complaints on this, they found a problem with the wiring harness and had to do upgrade called a soft recall. I called on star and asked about recalls regarding the warning light for air bag, they said no recall on that. I requested a case be opened on 6-2-2016 and have not heard anything. Why would this warning light come on for a week every may? we do several miles of traveling mostly less than 300 one way trips yet it has only come on in may. I called my local dealership and they said no recall on that warning light either. Previously I had a 2009 Malibu which I purchased mainly because of the safety of all the airbags. If I or may passenger is in danger at any time with the airbag disabled it's not safe, period.

Airbag red warning light is flashing on dashboard when turning the ignition. This happens intermittently. I am afraid the airbag will deploy at any time even if there is no car crash. This has happened at least 2 times. Once when the car was sluggish and I had to turn it off at atop light because it would not accelerate over 40 miles and hour. The other time it happened just when I was starting the car. I.

The first thing that happened was my passenger side rear door just suddenly flew open while I was driving my vehicle down the road. Doors were locked and all were completely closed and the door just came open for some unknown reason. Had my mechanic take a look and he couldn't see anything unusual about the mechanism or anything on the door. It has happened several times since so now I put the seatbelt through the door handle and pull it tight and lock seatbelt into place so if it happens the door won't fly open again. The second issue I am having is with the airbag warning light and alarm coming on randomly when I am driving my car. I took it into the chevy dealership for one of the other recalls and they said that to put it on the tester, it would cost me $120 (which I cannot afford to pay), so they just let it be and fixed the recall I brought it in for. I am still having the problem and I notice that when the warning light is off and I press the horn. . . It comes on immediately and beeps at me. Is this a safety issue to be concerned with? with all the issues and recalls this car has been having I am not sure if it's an issue to be concerned about or not or just wait to hear on another recall or? I can't pay that to have it actually diagnosed.
