GMC Yukon owners have reported 14 problems related to front air bag sensor control (under the air bag category).
On 9/16/14, I got into my car and started the engine. Upon starting the engine, both airbags blew up. There was no accident or impact, they just blew up. There was nobody in the passenger seat and that one blew up too. I reported this incident to gm and they investigated it and have denied paying to repair damages. They say there was corrosion in the airbag sensor. Nowhere in the owners manual does it say that I am responsible for maintaining these connections. This is a life safety device that should be assembled with the highest level of care a precision. Thisnis not the responsibilty or the owner or operator, it is faulty equipment and should be the responsibilty of gm. Now I have a car that I cannot drive, it has two blown airbags. It would appear that gm has had this problem ongoing, there are lots of complaints out there and it needs to be addressed. I find it hard to beleive that corrosion could cause deployment of airbags at any moment. I could have been driving when this happened and could have caused a serious accident and or injury.

Airbag sensor is malfunctioning and requires replacement.
Defect. Right passenger air bag side module (front seat) was defective and replaced at my total cost of $476. 10 on 4-20-07. The dashboard indicator light alerted me around 4-2-08 that the problem has resurfaced (the replacement part is defective), after only 5,500 miles of vehicle usage. A passenger is in the seat for somewhat less than half of those miles--a defect after less than a year and less than 2,300 miles of equivalent service. The specific nature of the problem was identified by an independent experienced service technician. I should have never had the first problem, let alone the 2nd.
Events leading up to the failure: 2002 Yukon 73,000 miles. No previous events leading up to the problem. Failure/consequences: 2002 Yukon: I started my car and abs light stayed on. While driving, I could feel an abnormal vibration throughout my car. (with my two small children, we pulled off to the side of the road on the right of way. I cut off my car (removed key out of ignition) and the car sounded like it was still on. Correct the problem: I called my GMC dealer in austin texas where I had purchased the vehicle and the service manager told me that he has seen many incidents such as this. He indicated that if I left the abs motor running, that my battery would die and/or the motor would ruin. So, he instructed me to raise the hood and remove the 60amp abs fuse. By doing so, the vibration/motor stopped. He said to bring it into the garage for service. His initial guess was that it was the abs module or ebcm needed to be replaced. Because my vehicle was no longer in warranty, he estimated that it could cost anywhere between $1100. 00-1900. 00 dollars. I have done research on the internet and there are many 1999-2004 gm suvs and trucks which have experienced this problem. I am requesting that a recall be placed for these modules.

The front passenger air bag sensor goes on and off when my wife sits in it. She weights 112 lbs. This has happened since the day we purchased the vehicle new at the dealer. We are very concerned about this and the dealership gave us blanket statements. The dealership has replaced the sensor in the seat, however the same problem persists. The service manager mike witnessed the problem. As mentioned, we are very very concerned.

Transmission; while sitting at a stop light when the light changes and hits the gas it falls out of gear, and then it makes a noise when it goes back into gear. Caller does not do anything but take his foot off brake and onto gas pedal. It does not do it all the time, but he does not know when its going to happen. Dealer says if they can't duplicate the problem they can't fix it. So they say there is no problem. Manufacturer was called, and they did not return call. Consumer called them again, and they sent a service representative. He said if they can't duplicate the problem they can't fix it. Also the air bag light keeps coming on and off.
