GMC Acadia owners have reported 47 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
For the 3rd time in <1 yr, the airbag light came on. The 1st time they had to replace the passenger side air bag,lay 15k miles, the 2nd time, they repaired the electrical connection at 19k miles, this last time they had to replace the tensioner kit at 22k miles. These air bag issues should not be happening this often when I've only had the car for 15 months and bought it new.

In September 2014, recall #14187 was preformed and repair on my vehicle. However now is September of 2015, while driving my vehicle, the service airbag light started coming on. Took to dealership to look at under air bag light special coverage and was told it was not covered. Issue for the service airbag light I was told is due to the front seat belt retractor on the driver side. Call gm to complain. Was told original recall was repaired. It seems that this is still an issue even after the recall was done. Now it is the seat belt retractor instead of the tensioner.

Air bag lights on dash came on saying "service airbag", took to my mechanic and he read the codes which came back as 20 & 81 for the main passenger side airbag. He said it means it's not getting a reading and possible solutions were either the sensor or module for the airbag needing replacement. He advised me it was very dangerous because the airbag is essentially not working and if an accident were to occur that it would probably not deploy. He also stated only a certified dealership could fix it and they want $150 just to diagnose the problem even though I've already had it diagnosed. I feel anything having to do with airbags on a vehicle should be taken care of by the manufacturer whether or not the vehicle is under warranty, especially since no one will repair them besides a dealership and that is a huge safety issue. People can die!.
Drivers seat air bag was replaced 2 months ago after service air bag light came on. Service air bag light came back on today.
Service air bag light went on and off for a few weeks, then it went off for a while, and came on again and stayed on. Drivers seat air bag was diagnosed as being the problem and was replaced.
I purchased this vehicle, and was told there were no active recalls and nothing wrong with vehicle, the dealership supposedly had took it thru a hundred point inspection, immediately the air bag light came on, it started losing antifreeze and the check engine light came on , after several trips to the service dept at this Toyota dealership, I am still having issues, they fixed the small things like the water pump, the rear wiper blade, electrical but the engine light still comes on and I had it checked out and it is the transmission, it is going out, and the air bag (service air bag soon) is still on, but was supposedly fixed by a recall in 2011, either it was a bad part, or it was not serviced at all. I have been driving for 40 years and I have always been a loyal gm owner, especially the Buick lasabre which I drove for 15 years, but I am not happy with the quality of this vehicle and the dealership that I purchased it at, and they are rated by the bbb as a. I also do not like the fact that on gm commercails it states non gm owners,like come on in, we will take care of non gm owners but not the loyal ones. I think it very important to stick with american brands and love gm, just very dissatisfied with this one. I think gm should fix this car, the air bag and especially the transmission!!!!.
My boyfriend was driving our vechile I was sitting in the passenger seat with the seatbelt on. I turned around to help my daughter and the airbag light turned off. Contacted the dealer where I bought it 2/13/15 and they told me since they already did fixes on it they will not be fixing this. Contacted GMC and they off assistance to fix the sensor. Total cost to get fixed 810 dollars. Pretty pissed off. Haven't even had the vechile a month yet.

Safety recall notice received may 2014 for the air bags. Took car in to crest Chevrolet o 10/27/14 to fix air bags. The service air bag light stayed on after I got the car back. A month later, I received a letter from crest stating that some wiring was not done right and I was asked to bring the car back. I took the car in 11/14 to have the wiring fixed. I took the car in on 12/11/14 to fix the air bags because the service air bag light was on and to get the car smogged. When I got the car back, the service air bag light stayed on and now the check engine symbol was on. I took the car back in on 1/6/15 and was told that the air bag sensor on the passenger side was not working and it would cost approximately $800 to fix it!! I was also told that the check engine symbol was on because of a intake manifold tuning valve was the problem and "it didn't have anything to do with being smogged". Funny, the obd symbol wasn't on when I took the car in to be smogged.
2007 GMC Acadia slt-1 passenger air bag light goes on and off while driving. And the display in the dash says passenger air bag needs servicing. I contacted GMC and they said they had no recalls listed for my vehicle based on my VIN number but have found several websites that says there should be an open recall based on my vehicles year, make, and model.

My vehicle was recalled in 2010 and the connector under the seat was checked. Now there is a new recall to remove the connector. Dealer states since I had the 2010 recall I must pay to have the 2014 recall done. The check air bag light has come on.
Started car air bag light on now it won't go off. GMC said my 2008 is not on the recall list. Rt rear spring also broke tire pressure light also stays on.
I have had 3 recalls on my 4 year old Acadia in the last several months and also had to replace my power steering at less than 65,000 miles. My car is back at the dealer for the third time in less than 10 days for the service air bag light after they have attempted to fix the recall. Although no specific safety incident, my concerns with the ability of the dealer/automaker to provide a safe vehicle and well as the overall lack of reliabilitly of the car in less than 4 years is both disapointing and concerning. I am currently in touch with GMC about my options.

Airbag light on for passenger side airbags. Has taken to dealership, unable to fix. Current recall does not cover 2007, but 2007 has the same problem as 2008 and beyond.
GMC stated my vehicle VIN is not part of the recent recall on the harness for the airbag and safety restraint system. My 2008 GMC Acadia began showing symptoms of the system. The passenger airbag light would go off intermittently when an adult was seated. I took the vehicle in and was told gm was recalling the vehicles for the issue. I took it to the GMC dealership in October to have the work done and was told that it was not my VIN was not in the recall. I told the dealership to fix the problem and tell me what was done to correct the issue. They stated that the recall was done and it fixed. I spoke with GMC for reimbursement and they said the vehicle is not subject. My concern is that they have not identified the vehicles that have the problem completely and they are not willing to take any action to identify the extent of this previously identified problem.
Received 'service air bag' warning from the dashboard driver information center. Passenger air bag indicator on center console indicates 'off' when 160 lb person is seated in the passenger seat.
The service passenger airbag light comes on and off during driving.
The contact owns a 2008 GMC Acadia. The contact stated that the air bag indicator illuminated intermittently. The dealer stated that the passenger presence module needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 46,927.
Airbag seat connectors and airbag replaced after service airbag light came on. This should have been included in the 2008 GMC Acadia recall #102606/gm #14030 and for some reason this particular vehicle was not. This recall needs to be expanded to all 2008 GMC Acadias!!.
Approximately the first of November 2013, I had picked up my mom to go shopping with me and I very seldom have a passenger with me and happen to look up and notice the light on the airbag light tgat says on or off was off !!! she weighs about 135# and so I noticed we went into the store and came out and it tgen registered on!!! so I watched this for the next few weeks and it continued!! sometimes on and sometimes off! so when I went in for an oil change at bergstroms I had them check it out and they said it could be corrosion on the plugs under the seat but that wasn't the problem! so they said with a big man in it it registered like an infant sitting there! said it would cost $800 to replace it!!! this car is in like new condition and I do not have a daily passenger! I'm thinking that may have been defective since day one!!! thank god I didn't get in a collision and lose a loved one ! this would be a huge lawsuit!!!! I am gonna see if GMC will pay for this fix! any other questions call me at 920-499-8017 or 920-619-6118 or email me at taribare3@aol. Com.
Contacted local GMC dealership today (10/27/14) asking about recent airbag recall and why we haven't received a recall letter. I need to get this fixed passenger airbag light goes on/off intermittently while adult male (180 lb)/adult female (140 lb)/teenage boy (120 lb) are sitting in the passenger seat. Now a service airbag message is also displayed. The GMC dealership stated my VIN is not part of the recent airbag safety recall, yet the symptoms my vehicle exhibit are the same as other vehicles covered within the scope of the recall. After research, it is evident that all 2008 GMC Acadias should be covered by the airbag system recall(s).
Intermittent "service airbag" light. Started coming on in late October of 2013. I purchased the vehicle used on October 17, 2013. For the last several months, the indicator light has been on every time I start the vehicle.
Had a difficult time getting appt. To fix airbag which was recalled. When they fixed it, the airbag light was still on, so they said that I have to pay the $600. 00 to repair the side airbag. I have read online about innumerable problems with the Acadia 2008 airbags, just like mine. You go in to have the recall fixed and there are problems with the other airbags. I am going to consult an attorney about a class action suit since there are so many of us with this exact problem. It's ridiculous to pay for something that is supposed to keep you safe but in actuality may harm you if it is not taken care of.
