GMC Acadia owners have reported 38 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
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.
The contact owns a 2010 GMC Acadia. The contact stated that while driving approximately 25 mph, the air bag warning indicator illuminated intermittently. The malfunction recurred whenever the vehicle was in operation. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer where the front driver's side internal seat belt pretensioner was replaced. The manufacturer was notified of the defect. The approximate failure mileage was 56,000. The VIN was unavailable.
I had my vehicle checked for the airbag light that was consistently on in the 2008 GMC Acadia. It was found to defective and out of warranty. My concern is that the vehicle hasn't even been used for more than five years and the part is no longer effective. Shouldn't the part last longer than five years?.
1. Transmission going out at 67k miles and appears to be very prevalent with this make and model of vehicle. Very dangerous as the car will not go into gear at any given time and basically leaves you stuck in neutral in the middle of a busy highway. 2. Service air bag light stays on after dealership claims to have fixed the problem. If in a crash, have no idea if we will be protected. Not a comfortable feeling.
Without probation, air bag light comes on and stays on either until I turn car off or if car sits overnight. I do believe the airbag can deploy when the light is on if we were involved in a crash.

The contact owns a 2011 GMC Acadia. The contact was driving approximately 10 mph when the air bag warning indicator remained illuminated consistently on the instrument panel. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnosis and the contact was informed that the passenger's side air bag was faulty. The manufacturer was notified of the problem, who informed the contact that a defect was not covered under the service warranty. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 56,710.

My service air bag light came on & has remained on. We took the car to our local dealorship & paid to have it diagnosed. We were told that it is out or warranty & we would have to pay for it ourself. The passenger presence module needed to be replaced. They also said that due to this, none of our airbags would deploy in the case of an accident. We spoke to the dealorship and have written GMC in hopes that we would not have to pay close to $900 to fix this safety problem. No luck! have read many blogs with others having the same problem.
The contact owns a 2012 GMC Acadia. The contact stated that the air bag light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was found that the air bag needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired but the failure recurred. The contact also mentioned that the failure occurred approximately eight times. The manufacturer was notified about the failure. The failure mileage was 44,085. . . Updated 03/18/14 the air bag issue was resolved. Updated 03/20/14.
Service airbag light continually comes on when passenger moves in passenger seat and airbag stops functioning.
I purchased my GMC Acadia denali in August of 2012. Within just a few months, the service air bag light came on when I started the vehicle. It never went off until I took the vehicle to have it serviced. The dealership repaired it under warranty and within a few weeks it came back on. Service trip #2 they got it to stay off for a short time again. Service trip #3 they decide they should replace the drivers air bag to correct the problem. Since the replacement I have taken my vehicle back in at least 2 other times. On March 25, 2014 I got my vehicle serviced and the light had been on the week prior but was off on this day. I did advise them of the problem and they said they had not heard of the recent recall. Well today 4/4/14 the service air bag light is on again. I just called them and they said I would get my notice in the mail from gm and they are ordering parts. Whatever that means. I only have 11463 miles on my vehicle and this is a serious issue to me.
