"takata recall". Went to the website on the mailer and found that we are one of the vehichles that needs to have the recall done on, contacted the closest dealer they listed (happens to be the one we purchased from) and erica @ rossi advised that her computer says "no remedy avail" and suggested I call the 888 # for you guys. Our airbag light has been lit on the dash for the last few months. Not sure if it has to do with the recall or the sensor has gone bad in the front bumper.

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.
