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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
Service airbag light illuminated in the dash; technical service bulletin available to dealer for similar issue only covers the airbag connector not the airbag module, which has gone out in this vehicle, on the passenger side. I have discussed with dealer and gm and they are unwilling to repair this safety issue. This appears to be a common defect in the 2007, 2008 GMC Acadia as well as the Buick enclave and early chevy traverse. A simple internet review will show multiple complaints. Gm is unwilling to recall these vehicles for this part which would be the proper customer care but instead will complain here for review. A review of the number of vehicles affected by this safety issue is needed.
We purchased a used 07 GMC Acadia from a local dealership and the airbag light kept going on and off by itself. I asked the dealer to check the recall list for our vehicle, however they stated all the recalls had been done. We had to pay $500. 00 to fix the problem.

The battery on my GMC Acadia died on the 15th February and the dealer could not identify anything wrong with the vehicle. The following Monday the service air bag light came on and I was told the sensor was not working right and the parts were ordered. The Friday of 2/26 the check engine light was on and the vehicle would not accelerate above 50mph and half the gas tank was emptied in 25 miles. During that Friday the engine was still running even after I pulled the key out of the ignition. That same night the battery died and could not be jump started. The vehicle was inspected on 3/1 and the air bag sensors along with fuse box was replaced as water was leaking into the fuse box. All of this happened in the mileage range of 6800 to 7100 approximately. The dealer has replaced the fuse box and the vehicle is running fine so far.

I was taking my daughter to florida for cheer leading competition; I was just outside of illinois when the check airbag light and message screen came on thankfully the light went off but came back on on our way back to chicago and kept coming on and off. Took it to dealer but they only said that the harness was tight they only wiggled it and light went off but came back a couple of days later. Then the power steering started making noise dealer said they didn't hear anything and didn't do anything and noise is getting louder. Then suspension stared it making noise. Took it to dealer and had tie rods replaced. Then the service airbag problem came back and this time didn't go away. Took it to the dealer and they said that the harness was to tight and they rerouted it so it wasn't tight anymore. Worked for a couple of days and its on again but I didn't take it back and now is past its warranty. Then head lamp went out. Had to pay dealer $180 (rip off) next the other head light went out. My nephew replaced it in less than 10 min. Now there is a recall for that head light problem. Then wipers arm came loose from motor I had my cousin fix it for me. Now I have had the check engine light on for a couple of weeks took it to autozone came back with the code to replace the canister purge solenoid now I have the transmission problem, it started to act funny shifting pretty hard some times and then a few days ago I was driving on the freeway coming home when I notice the rpms at about 45000 and it wouldn't change gears and the fuel gauge started going nuts I don't know why and had to drive it home on the same gear. Took it to autozone and came back with the same code for the solenoid plus p0700/p0716/p0717 for the transmission. Now my Acadia is just sitting on my driveway no money to fix it and driving my 15 year old truck hoping GMC does something about this nightmare.
