Service passenger airbag warning light comes on intermittently. Sometimes when the passenger seat is occupied, the light will go off, but not always. Lack of trust in dealers investigating and making the repairs is an issue. I'm told (by a local Chevrolet dealer service manager) that it will cost $80 just to check via computer what the cause may be. Repairs such as re-coupling a loose sensor connection beneath the passenger seat is relatively inexpensive ($40) but replacement of sensors repairs could run upwards from $700.

When first starting the car and also while driving the air bag indicator comes on and information center reads service air bag along with an alarm. When this happens all the above-mentioned warning lights and read out may stay on for the entire ride or go off shortly after coming on. Has not affected the driving or handling of vehicle. I am concerned that if this happens before an accident will the air bags deploy.
