We have had the vehicle back to the dealer 3 times for items related to the air bag system recalls since 2015. At one point we were asked to turn the car off and see if the light goes out once the car is re-started. Well, the air bag light is back on and once again it won't go out. I am waiting for it to randomly deploy while my wife or myself are driving it.

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.

Service airbag appears in message center has been coming on for the past year. When front seat passenger sits in seat and vehicle is moving the airbag light will go/off and the service airbag appears. Sensor not working properly, should be recalled. Has been occurring more frequently.
Air bag light was on and passenger sensor light for airbaq not working. Had the repairs done for $795. 00.
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.
The air bag light will constantly come on and go off. Sometimes it will stay on for a day, week, month. I received a letter from GMC about the problem but they will only fix the problem if the vehicle is under 72,000 miles. I bought mine used at 82,000. I don't understand how this is not a safety recall. Was told by tech, when I called to see how much to fix, that if the light is on and I have a wreck the bags won't deploy. Letter states that the problem is the "pretension wire harness connectors experiencing intermittent high resistance". This problem has been happening ever since I bought the vehicle used in July 2015.
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.
Passenger air bag indicator has been intermittently going on and off for over a year, when a person weighing over 100 lbs is seated there. Recently the service air bag has come on the dic, and the air bag indicator is always off now when anyone is seated.
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.
