Not entirely true:
If your Air Bag light is on and there's a message on your DIC, the SDM must be -replaced-.
If you have no light or message, the SDM will be reprogrammed.

I just got this notice in the mail today. My car was produced on 1/23... I have about 1,300 miles on mine so far, and the light has never come on. So, easy fix hopefully and I will be on my way.

No notice yet for me. Purchased 9/11/11. Airbag light seems fine on mine for now. The "leather" dash trim on the other hand...

Still haven't received a recall notice but my DIC "check airbag" warning lit up a couple of weeks ago. SDM was replaced yesterday and all is well again.

Brought mine to the dealer yesterday to have the SDM reprogrammed, they said it wouldn't take long so I waited while they did it. An hour later they told me that while they were running the program to update the SDM the link to GM was lost and so was all the information, not only to the SDM but to all the other modules as well. I don't know how many different modules the Camaro has but it didn't sound good.

They eventually got the other modules working but couldn't reprogram the SDM. They tried to get a new SDM module but there aren't any available in the area so now I'm going to be in a rental car for a few days while they work with GM Tech reps to solve the problem.

You've go to love modern technology. The car gets grounded because of a lost computer link to update an air bag system.

I'm taking mine in tomorrow morning for the air bag reprogram. I'm going to ask if they've dealt with the leather problem on the dashboards yet.

Took mine in at 9:00AM today. Before I left the house I tuned my car back to stock with the SCT X3 Tuner. They also were having problems. The service manager knows that I have a tune, and that I had returned it to stock before bringing it in. They assured me that the tune was not part of the issue. After a while longer they said that they were going to replace the SDM. About the same time as my rental car showed up they got it to work, and the reprogramming was complete. So I got out of there at 12:30PM. I drove it up the road for about 4 miles. Stopped in a parking lot, turned the car off and plugged in my SCT Tuner. And Put Teds JRE Tune back in. And away I went. All is good.

The leather panel on the dashboard just above the radio and below the a/c vents is coming loose on several cars. Here's the thread all about it.

I know this is a fairly old thread but I came across this video today and thought it was relevant to the airbag recall. I also have a 2012 with a late 2011 build date but have not received a notice as of yet.

It is a recall to reprogram the airbag computer. The problem is some 2012s airbag light is coming on for no reason. It takes less than 30 min. No big deal.
