GMC Envoy owners have reported 16 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category). The most recently reported issues are listed below.
As I was driving down I-75 at 10:30pm my headlights just randomly went off! I was driving approximately 70 mph and I was in an area that had no lights alongside the road. I slammed on my brakes to attempt to move to the side of the road. After I slowed enough to move over, my headlights went back on. I was so shook up, I'm not sure if my rear lights went off as well. This type of incident happened again this past weekend and I had to pull to the side of the road and actually shut off the engine and re-start my car twice before my lights went back on. Today, on my way to work, in the dark, just before I was puling into our parking lot, they went off again. I also have noticed that when I press on the automatic window buttons, my lights dim and then brighten. Another issue is the dash light for the gas cap turns on and off randomly while driving the car. In addition, my air bag light has been on for several months, does not go off and yet, it not included in the recall of the dangerous airbags going off randomly and causing accidents and injuries. All of the above issues have occurred while the vehicle was in motion. I'm not sure if these are related or not. All of the issues are very serious safety issues and need to be addressed.

The airbag light is on. Sometimes it will go off, but the light is on most of the time on the instrument panel. I spoke to the service department at our local dealer and they did not care and said we would have to bring it in another time to hook it up to their big machine. I want this issue resolved. I have had this vehicle serviced for recalls (wiper motor & cluster gages). My wife drives this vehicle and I would like to make sure it is safe for her to continue driving it with this light on and no danger of the airbag deploying.

My service stabilitrak and air bag lights has been on since I purchased the vehicle. I have taken it to a mechanic and they stated that they did not see a problem. I was wondering if this is an on-going issue and if there are any recalls for this.

The service air bag light is always on. When it was purchased the light was off. It was taken in for service back to the dealer before the 30 day warrantee was up due to radio issues (buzz) they worked under the back seat on a device and under the dash below the steering column to resolve. The sound returned and they replaced a part under the back seat. A few months later these new issues started. The service air bag light is always on recently the service stability control light has started. This is intermittent. Please advise. Fyi: there is a few bulletin boards where a lot of other people are experiencing the same issues.
Submission from constituent re recalls-2006 GMC Envoy. The consumer stated, her husband was driving, when suddenly the vehicle stalled. He was able to coast safely to a stop. However, the vehicle would not re-start, and the vehicle had to be towed. According to the invoice, the ignition cylinder was replaced. Also, on numerous occasions, the air bag light illuminated, and remained on for days. The consumer referenced recall # 06v417000.
My airbag light remains on, indicating that there is a problem. The dealer claims that the bag will either not deploy, or suddenly deploy for no reason unless I replace it. I was told this was not part of the recalls. . . But it is clearly a safety issue. I don't feel that I should pay for the replacement.
I was driving down the highway and all of my instrument panel gauges stopped working and the indicator lights came on for the entire system. This problem continues to happen and GMC will not fix this problem. They say I have too many miles and that my vehicle is not part of the recall. This now continues to happen and the whole electric system is in failure, I can't start the vehicle now and this is 2013. Chronic ongoing problem that poses major safety issues with speed, fuel and much more.
