For several months, the front passenger air bag warning light would illuminate, and the message center would display 'check air bag'. Two weeks ago, it became not intermittent, but constant. I took the car to my GMC dealer and was told $735 repair - air bag passenger pressure module needs replacing. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of the same problem reported on various internet site, blogs etc. Gm has a supplier problem with this part, and it needs to be investigated. I purchased this vehicle new and have countless problems with this vehicle.
For two weeks leading up to the 3/27/14 incident, every time we started the car the air would not come on and we would have to manually turn the air on. When we turned the car off, the air would stay on. Two weeks later, when I was operating the vehicle, the gauges on the instrument panel started going haywire displaying dozens of messages, and the all of the gauges would shoot up, then bottom out at 0, then shoot up again, etc. . I turned the car off, and when I came back later to start it, the car wouldn't start but the electrical stuff came on. After several attempts to get the car to start, I roll down my windows and then try it again, and the car started. I drove it straight to the dealership. The dealership replaced the body control module and some wires and said they fixed the problem. Less than 48 hours later, the same thing with the gauges and warning lights happened. We immediately sent an email to the service department since it was the weekend and they were closed. On Monday, the car died again, but the radio kept coming on/off. . . . I fiddled with the radio and the car started. I drove it straight to the dealership. They can't get the car to "mess up" again, and are waiting for it to do the same thing it did for me, so they can figure out how to fix it. I am concerned that the car is showing significant electrical problems that include safety equipment, yet GMC is ready to turn the car back on the road. Note: all recalls are up to date and the dealer has been in communication with GMC.

Seat beat sensor warning light comes on at start-up. Goes off and on when moving. The patterns are unpredictable. Sometimes it consistently turns on and off. Other times it may not display at all. I did discover a recall related to this model - recall id # 47176, effective Feb 21, 2007. The local dealer however reported my model is not covered.

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 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.
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.
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.
