Service Air Bag Light Came On?

Recommended Posts

went into my truck yesterday morning and the service air bag light is on the DIC. During this driving time, I turned it on and off several times, and each time the service air bag light came on. It sat for 4-5 hrs, and I drove it again and the light is now off. Any ideas??

Well I spoke the service depatment and they said to bring the truck in real quick to see if it threw a code. I did this yesterday, and he scanned it, and said it threw 2 codes. He thought real quickly, that it was some kind of sensor in the passenger seat area which goes to the air bag. I have an appointment on thursday, any ideas on what the problem is? He did not give me the code number.

I was swapping out the steering column bearing in mine and accidentally turned the wheel. Mine air bag warning stemmed from that encounter. Haven't had it fixed yet.

I had a wire break at the pin (outside of the plug) under the driver seat for the seat position sensor that set off a code. I fixed that and it's good to go. I've also had it come on once and awhile when it's cold (-5 or colder), but if you turn it off and then restart it stays off. We put a scan tool on it and there are no codes stored.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I just did the same thing tonight.

 

According to the service manual, after 255 consecutive ignition cycles with no codes, it will turn off.

 

(I already tried turning the key on and off 255+ times - apparently it actually has to start to count)

 

So I figure it will take me three months to get rid of the light.

 

Yours out yet chevydeerhunter?

 

 

Sure would be nice if you didn't need a Tech2 to do anything beyond checking the engine light on these trucks.

Well since this thread is from 2008 and the deerhunter has not been on here since April...

 

But if you turned the steering wheel too far while the intermediate shaft was out, you broke your SIR coil (clockspring) That will be expensive. See if your horn will blow.
