West bound highway 44 before the railroad tracks. Female deer came out of nowhere and was hidden by the a pillar, drivers side, which obscured her sudden crossing. She hit the front, left, of the truck which caused the side-curtain airbags deployment charges on both driver and passenger side, to go off. Bags failed to deploy. The ensuing force from the drivers side curtain airbag plastic cover ejecting out, forcefully rammed into me, pushing me into the center console. Airbag indicator on the dash info screen immediately popped up as did automatic activation of the hazards. Upon coming to a stop on the side of the road, both driver and passenger side-airbags began to smoke. Smell is similar to black/gun powder which I assume the deployment charge is made out of. Taken by ambulance to hospital. Filed claim with insurance. Research this evening reveals a known problem with other airbags in the truck. Nhtsa ref: NHTSA campaign number: 16v651000. I'm wondering if my issue is potentially symbiotic to this issue. Lastly, a check of any recalls on my truck via the mychevy app and NHTSA website, fails to indicate any recalls at all exist on the truck.

Air bag light is on. Chevrolet service originally suspected it was the air bag module and wanted to replace it charging $800. 00. They would not guarantee that was the problem. Since we have replaced the air bag module took the vehicle in again to have it programmed and service stated that the new module would not accept programming and they are still not sure what the problem is. Light is still on, no airbags. The service department doesn't appear to have any idea what is wrong and just want the consumer to pay for parts and labor until they figure it out.

Airbag light on airbags disabled safety concern vehicle is not as potentially as safe as it was designed to be. The sdm (airbag module) has water intrusion and caused corrosion inside the sdm and caused the circuit board to burn out no fuses were blown which is a concern as well because the board had burn components from the water intrusion. Gm had a previous recall on this problem it appears this vehicle had the recall as it had the jute from the carpet removed from this area above the sdm this recall was purposively a canada recall 09270c - material over sensing and diagnostic module I talked to gm about this they will do nothing for this even though they know of a problem this is a real safety concern not only for the airbag but for the module burning up the circuit board as well potential fire in the vehicle I would like it fixed by the manufacture.

I entered my truck and found a crack in my dash running from the vents all the way over my instrument panel. The next day, my airbag light went on telling me they needed servicing. Yesterday I was driving over some pot holes in a road and a big chunk of my dash cracked and jumped out onto my dash. After getting home, I see there is another crack on my dash. Before calling a dealer, searched to find out what was going on. I found the crack and the sensor were related and other have been having the same problem and no recall yet. What?? that chunk that flew out is as sharp as a razor. It could have cut me or landed in my eye causing injury. How can I drive the car knowing the whole dash could shatter at any time? I don't have the money to fix this issue. It should be recalled and fixed by gm!!.

The air bag light began to flash and the message "service air bag" came on both while stationary and moving, also when first starting vehicle and driving. The light would come off and on or stay on for a day or two. Took vehicle into an auto repair shop and they were unable to "read the modules". Then took vehicle into Chevrolet dealer repair shop. The first time they repaired the clock spring in the steering wheel. Air bag light and message stayed off for less than 24 hours. Currently working with dealership to try and fix problem. Concerned about safety of air bag and whether they are going to protect my family if needed.
