Chevrolet Silverado 1500 owners have reported 36 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
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!!.

Service airbag light came on this morning after start up. Restarted truck to see if warning would clear. I still have the message and believe there's something wrong with the airbag or the sensors.

Takata recall service air bag light is on and my vehicle is listed as having takata airbags. Have not received a recall notice but don't feel like getting killed in an accident because chevy denies there is a problem. This is a safety issue which chevy and not me should take care of.

I got out of work and the service airbag light came on so immediately I turned it off and started my truck again thinking it was just something weird that didn't register right. It has sence been 3 day so I looked up recalls on my truck and the recalls were for my 09 truck but my VIN didn't quite match the "affected" vehicles. I was stationary and it was snowing outside. The recall said there was an acoustic pad that prevented the sensor from working correctly.
Service air bag light appeared. Second time occurrence, first occurrence in 2012. Front impact sensors corroded and failed. Three sensor in total.

I was entering I-75 interstate ramp and moving along with traffic and about 70 mph, the door locks started going up and down on there own, the instrument cluster needles started sporadically going up and down then they show no signs of anything, the airbag light came on along with the chime sound, the stability control light came on, the truck lost a little bit of power when trying to accelerate, I did smell a burnt wire odor. I have replaced the battery and alternator and still the problem exists. This has happen twice before this incident. The stability control light came on and the truck ran really rough. I took it to my local Chevrolet dealer ship and they told me that the number 8 cylinder had oil leaking into it which I see no signs of blue smoke coming out of the tailpipe and have been driving it for 5 months now with no problems except what is going on now with the electrical system. I have been researching the electrical problems with this year truck and it seems to be a wide spread manufacture problem. I have also seen pictures of the same year truck with the same problems that are described above and this ladies truck burned from the dashboard all the way to the front seats. A total loss. General motors needs to address this problem immediately before someone dies. Recall recall recall!!!.
The service airbag light came on and stays on the milage was about 65000 miles its looks to me like this is a common problem with this truck it is a 2005 chevy Silverado 1500 LS, you would think Chevrolet would fix this problem.

My truck is well maintained , at approx 40,300 miles, my service air bag light came on for no apparent reason. I drove for a short time knowing that my air bags were disabled. A friend and I located an impact sensor that was bad. I believe that it was a safety problem and should have been corrected by gm.
Our 2007 chevy suburban was parked in out drive way, after a severe hail storm in killeen, TX we took the car to get the hail damaged repaired, upon completion of the repairs the air bag light came on the instrument panel. Simultaneously, on the news there were reports of air bags malfunctioning on gm vehicles. We are a family with teenagers and I am afraid this air bag is a extreme concern. The vehicle has never been in any collisions or accidents that required any major mechanical repairs. The vehicle has been taken care of without fail. I have a strong feeling the air bag issue is a manufacture malfunction.
Service airbag light came on. Took it to dealer said impact sensor was bad and airbags would not work if in a frontend crash. Truck has only 73000 miles on it. Cost $350. 00 to $400. 00 to fix. Dealer said they had a lot of this problem. Why have there been a recall.
The air bag service light and is lit as well as the service center saying it needs service, also has the same brake problems the 2007 and up silverados where recalled for with the failure of the front abs sensors. The abs problem could cause an accident at low speed because everytime you stop the abs system activates and pulses until stopped at 15 to 20 mph and increases stopping distance. The air bag light is because of a sensor failure in the front end area and requires replacement. From what I read on the internet these are well known safety issues with the model trucks. The other problems with the premature failure of brake lines that have corroded, and the check engine light being on for the ever well known problem of the vacuum solenoid near the full tank. These are constant problems with this yr and other models at gm. They should be recalled.
Vehicle has service airbag light and message on the dic indicating a faulty air bag safety system. Upon further diagnostic it has been determined that the driver side front airbag impact sensor is faulty disabling the airbag safety system. This part is $250 from the dealer and as a safety item is known to be faulty too soon.
Air bag light just came on an had it see a dealer told me I had both sensors in the frount of the truck bad and wanted to charge me around $850. 00 to replace them I didnt have that kind on money to spend they told me it wouldnt effect the running of my truck but if I get in a wreck my air bags proably will not work is this not a saftey problem gm should take care of they thousands of trucks like mine with the air bag light on an not air bag want work if they wreck I can only hope that they are a eecall on this before anymore people get hurt or kill that could be pervented if gm would do whats right and fix the problem.
Service air bag light came on and off a few times over 2 days and is now on for no apparent reason.
One day after sitting in a parking lot the "check air bag" message came on with air bag light. The past winter had been particularly wet and cold for ohio. After research online, I found that the front driver side air bag sensor was deformed and causing the problem. Apparently the design can allow water into the sensor, but not drain out. Hence, the water froze inside the sensor, expanded and damaged the sensor, rendering the air bag system inoperable. Part number 15103522. Further research revealed that the part has been replaced by another part number - 10370149. Unsure if this new part corrects the lack of drainage or not but according to the online research, it just might. Contacted chevy authorized service and they are not willing to replace the part at their cost since there has not been an official recall. I was put on hold for 5 minutes waiting to learn of the part price, at which point I hung up. There are numerous online reports of this problem and being that it is a life safety issue, one might think that chevy would be interested in not incurring more lawsuits than they already have against them.
Service airbag light comes on when vehicle is started and comes and goes throughout the drive. After discussing with friends found out there are approx. 5-10 other vehicles of the same model and around the same mileage in my area with the problem. If you search the web, there are a lot of trucks with the same problem. Not an isolated incident!!! the problem is expensive to fix and sounds like a money maker for the dealerships!!.
The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. The contact stated that while driving, he heard a noise under the dash board and the air bag light illuminated on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection and they stated that the censor needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified and they stated that he needed to take the vehicle in to get it repaired at his expense. The failure mileage was 42,500.
Air bag light has come on due to a faulty impact sensor, a part which will cost approximately $200 to replace. Even though I would consider this a major safety issue, I cannot afford repairs.
The service airbag light came on,and I had it checked,was told the front sensor was bad. Called the chevy dealer and was told they only have to be replaced if in a crash. I've had wiring problems and a recall on the blower wiring. I think Chevrolet should have to check into the problem,because on the internet there are a number of owners with the same airbag problem. Sounds like a safety issue to me. Chevrolet said for a price they will check it. They make it sound like it's the owner's fault, and the more money they can get the better. Sounds like their motto is (money before safety) something needs to be done to help the consumers.
Vehicle taken to dealership to have campaign work done ( 09184a oct. 09 sdm corrosion in states having snowfall and salt applied to roads) after receiving notice in mail. No problem with vechicle at this time. 2 weeks after work, vehicle (multiple times) started exhibiting intermittent service air bag light. . . On for a few minutes then off. Around oct. 2nd, 2012, service air bag light came on and now stays on upon start until vehicle is turned off. Gm and dealer contacted and recommended I have system diagnostic done. . . At my cost ($90) to determine problem. I opened a case file with gm (# 71-1118146997) and will take my vehicle to an independent mechanic to download codes and determine which item is faulty. I would have the dealership that did the work perform this, however I have had issues with them in the past regarding "needed" repairs. I suggested that if they run the diagnostics in my presence and the codes come up with something other than the sdm I would gladly pay for the diagnostic and repair, however, if the code came up with the sdm being the problem, they would pay for the diagnostic, replacement, and rental if needed. . . . . They would not accept this. The sdm in my vehicle is part number 25823557. . . Gm has now substituted it with part number 22759740. I own this vehicle (no loan/liens) and other than this issue have been very happy with it. . . . This vehicle is only driven approx. 15k per year, mostly to and from work and I follow all recommended service intervals. Thank you for your time.
