#1 - Warning Light On problem of the 2008 GMC Acadia
The car was a 2008 GMC Acadia. Problem #1 of 3: during heavy rains, water would leak in through the sun visors on both sides. Took it to the dealership several times. They said the drain tubes from the sunroof were clogged, they blew it out, when that didn't work, they charged me to put it longer tubes, when that didn't work, they said it was because they only replaced the front tubes, not the back. Problem #2 of 3: when driving through water puddles at low speed I lose power steering for a brief time (which is troublesome when turning). Problem #3 of 3: two warning lights for airbags come on everytime I start the vehicle. I can push a button each time to make the written warning go away, but the red light with a picture stays on. Not sure if the airbags would deploy or not. The failure date was July 29, 2013.

#2 - Warning Light On problem of the 2008 GMC Acadia
The car involved was a 2008 GMC Acadia. The VIN of this vehicle is 1GKER13708_. The passenger air bag sensor/light and warning light on the dash began to intermittently flash on and off at about 60k miles. Depending on how your sitting in the front passenger seat, the passenger air bag light will flash on and off. We took the vehicle to the dealer where we puchased at about 71k miles. The service rep stated the problem was with the passenger presence sensor module and that it would need to be replaced. The cost to replace would be around $900. A quick online search noted multiple accounts of faulty passenger air bag sensors in these cars, not to mention that there is an active recall on the 2007 models for the air bag control module. We feel this is a safety issue that gm should have to address. It was Monday, Apr. 2, 2012 when this warning light on issue happened.
#3 - Warning Light On problem of the 2008 GMC Acadia
The vehicle involved is a 2008 GMC Acadia. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1GKER13708_. Pps module bad. We got a letter from GMC that the airbag wires/connector terminal pins may be corroded. Soon after we got the notice, the air bag warning light started coming on intermittently. We took the Acadia in to dealership. They said the connectors are ok but now the passenger presence module needs replaced. Of course not under warranty. When we left the dealership now the light is on full time and won't turn off. When I asked why the light is on full time they said now that they scanned the codes it may have caused it to stay on. This warning light on issue occurred Wednesday, January 25, 2012.

#5 - Warning Light On problem of the 2008 GMC Acadia
The vehicle is a 2008 GMC Acadia. The VIN of the problem Acadia is 1GKEV23788_. For the third time in less than a year the airbag warning light has come on with a message to "service airbag. " today while stopped at a stoplight my wife smelled something burning but couldn't determine the origin. 15 minutes later after picking up our 5 year old from kindergarten and starting the car, the service airbag light and message came on. We will again go to the dealership for repair (our deductible is $200 on the warranty). I have three children age 2, 5, and 12 that ride in this vehicle. Previously, the dealership told us that when this light comes on the airbags may not work or may discharge involuntarily even without a collision. It was 05/24/10 when this warning light on issue happened.
