Failure Date: 11/04/2016

While driving normally at a speed of 35mph, a message saying "service air bag" began appearing in the dic and the airbag light began coming on and off on the dash and over the next couple days occurred more often until now it stays on constantly. I have read multiple other complaints stating exactly the same thing or something very similar. This is obviously a manufacturing issue and needs to be a recall. Instead, now I get to schedule service and pay for a manufacturers defect out of pocket.

The service airbag alert comes on for no reason, then goes off. It came back on again and did not go off. I drive speeds of 30 to 60 mph. My lights on the dash and radio dims and the radio cutoff at any given time. This is very serious problems because the vehcile can cut off while I am driving. I also experience water pouring into to my Traverse right over my front over head lamps inside. There was so much water it filled the cup holder and the shift was wet. The front windshield has never been changed and I don't have any cracks on my front window. I have no clue how the water is coming into my Traverse from the top and leaking in through the front over head lamps. I have brought it into the dealership, 1 day ago I still have not heard back from anyone. I asked if it was common, with the Traverse and I was told no. I obviously they lied, because I had to come on this website to see that other people are experiencing the same problems. I am not a car expert but the man at the dealership that has been doing this line of work for 30+ years said he could smell the water has soon has he sat in the vehicle. So obviously water has been leaking in from some where for a while now to be able to smell the water. I keep my car very clean and my carpets are dry. So the water must be coming in somewhere from the roof and staying reserved in a particular area until it pours out. The water may be the reason I am having the other issues, and may be each problems is not related at all. It is very frustrating because I am paying car note on a car that is am skeptical about driving because I don't know if it safe to drive. I have not only my safety to worry about I also have my children safety consider and other people that ride in this vehicle too. The lights dims while driving or when idling. The service air bag light is on all the time when driving, idling, or in park.

I just bought the car a week ago and now the service air bags light came on. Also the timing chain is making a weird noise. I took it to the mechanic and sure enough there is something wrong with air bags and timing chain.

My service airbag light came on, and then would go off and bag on again. I took it to a dealership and they said that drivers side airbag was bad and I bought my car about 18 months ago brand new. I was 10,000 miles over warranty, so the dealership said that it was not covered and I had to pay for the repair. An airbag issue is not a wear and tear issue! now 3 weeks after having it serviced my service airbag light is on again! I have 3 small kids in my car every day and I am worried to be driving it. I think that gm should take care of this issue!!.

The middle seatbelts in the middle and back row lock up and will not release. First in the second row, the middle seatbelt locks up when the seat gets folded down. The seatbelt will then not release. Sometimes you can pull it out and let it go back a few times and it will eventually come out, but not every time. The middle seatbelt in the third row seat became wrapped around my child's neck and would not release. I had to pull over and the belt was locked so tight around his neck that I could not maneuver it to get it off of his neck. I was eventually able to get him to bend his neck far enough to get it our from behind him, but this could have been catastrophic if he did not or was not able to notify me when it happened. This happened while the car was moving. Passenger airbag light keeps coming on.

History: I purchased a certified used 2009 Chevrolet Traverse on 10/22/2013 with a service contact. The vehicle has 44339 miles. Present: a few days prior to my car being serviced before a road trip. I notice what turn out to be a red air bag service light symbol on my dash board that stays on when the car is running. On June 9th 2015 at 6:30 am I dropped off my car to the chevy dealer's service department. At 12 noon I called service to get feedback about my car; I however, had to leave a message requesting an update about my car. I received a call from the service department after 2:30 pm. She stated that there was no communication with the s. D. M. Module and that they would need to check further. She stated that to check for the trouble it would cost close to $600 and if they had to replace the smd it would cost me $980. 80. I asked why I should have to pay to have a defective or damaged air bag serviced or repaired especially when it be in safe working order. The next day I spoke with a supervisor at my job who said that he has the same car, same year and the same color as my car. He had the same exact problem with his car while it was still under warrantee. He said that his car was in the shop on multiple occasions with multiple dealers they never could find out what caused the air bag light to come on. He said finally the air bag light went off with no explanation after being service at a different repair shop for a different problem. Now the side air bag was recall for not working properly. How can I find out about the defective air bag associated with the 2009 Chevrolet Traverse? or how many times this car has been in the shop for the air bag or the historical problems associated with the Traverse. Dealer: Chevrolet of jersey city 905 communipaw Ave. Jc, NJ 07304 201 793 – 4270.

Over the past couple years the vehicle "check air bag" light has come on multiple times and a warning indicator on the dash indicating someone has not buckled their seat belt. I have taken the vehicle to the dealership at least 5 or six times for the same problem and they have been unable to correct the problem. Most recent repair attempt was 1/4/16 and I have an appointment scheduled for 2/1/16. I have reached out to the service manager, customer relations rep and most recently corporate (case# 8-1796822227). We purchased the vehicle new but have not felt safe in it since this first started happening. We try to minimise use but have 5 grand children that we regularly haul around. We don't really recall when the problem first started. Again we do not feel this vehicle is safe and believe it should be reported and looked into.

Traveling approximately 55mph we were hit on the rear passenger side damage to the rear passenger tire well and rear right side on the body with extensive damage underneath. No airbags deployed at anytime in the vehicle. It was taken to the dealer's collision and repair shop and after several weeks it was returned. Within a week of getting it back the service airbag light came on, we took it back to collision repair center thinking it was an issue with the accident but the collision repair sent it to the dealership saying it was a warranty issue. I've taken this vehicle back 4 times now for the same service airbag light. Dealership service department supervisor keeps telling me it's an issue with there not being a grease needed on the sensors and that they apply to each sensor as it comes up, now on the 4th trip back service department manager claims that isn't correct and it has nothing to do with the issue. Each and every time I've taken this car in I have specifically asked if this is a safety issue and if it means my airbags are not working correctly every time I've been told, "no, your airbags are ok, there is no risk to you or your family. " dropped car of for final research into this issue since light came on again this week and service manager tells me that yes it does mean my airbags are not operating properly and there is a safety issue here.

I bought a used fleet 2009 Traverse and the airbag light comes on constantly. I didn't pay much attention to it, but now it's really aggravating me. I took it to the dealer but they wanted to charge me for checking it. I told them that I had mentioned before but the light had turned off again so not much attention was placed on it. This is a big concern for me. Also this vehicle has the habit of rolling back when I park or on a slight incline this is scary!!!!!.

The service airbag indicator randomly comes on. There are a couple of error messages "service airbag" or "service passenger airbag". We have repeatedly taken it to the dealer but despite trying they have been unable to fix the problem. Chevy has issued two technical bulletins indicating that common devices like cell phones in the front seat may interfere with the sensors. The critical question is whether the airbags are working properly or in the worst case the cell phones are DE-activating the airbags. The dealer has been unable determine whether the airbags are working properly when there are cell phones in the car and/or when the service indicator lights come on. This is the car used by my 17 year old daughter to drive herself and my son to school and I want to be assured that the air bags are working correctly and that the only problem is with a false service indicator. Can you help get this assurance from chevy?.
