    sounds like a unique problem to the truck. Make sure no aftermarket seat covers are interfering with seat system sensors. Probably a bad or loose connection in clock spring assembly, cpa or faulty cpa

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?

Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

Service air bag

I would not mess with an air bag. If something happens it could deploy and is very dangerous and also it is very expensive to have reinstalled if it does. However, if you do decide the remove the airbag you must disconnect your battery at least 30 minutes prior to attempting to remove it.

2003 gmc sierra 2500 service airbag light is on

When AIRBAG light it comes back on and stays on, it is telling you that there is a fault in the air bag system and that the system has been disabled because it is now working properly. To determine what is wrong with the system you will need to count the amount of flashes that the light does right before it stays on permanently and that will tell you what tests need to be done to determine why the system is down.

The most common thing that happens is the clock spring in the steering column goes bad (if this occurs, notice that the speed control and the horn no longer works as well).

Hope this helps, and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment. Have a nice weekend and thanks for using FixYa.

Service air bag indicator light on dash stays on

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.

On a 2004 gmc sierra, service air bag message on odometer and light on dash. how do i reset?

There is no reset,you have to take it to a repair shop and get the codes read to see what is causing the light to come on.Usually just a sensor.When it is repaired the shop can use a scan tool to reset the light.This would be the the only way to reset the light.Hope this helps.Good luck.
