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.

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.

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.

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!!!.

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.
