chalk up another service airbag light.

Well another gen5 with service airbag warning in DIC. Mine came on today. Dealer said it's a $125 fee to run diagnostics on it. Why hasn't GM made this a recall. Car goes in Friday. Will let you all know how it goes. My car is a 2011 2SS/RS with 42,000 miles.

Just got back from the dealer, my warranty dosn't cover the fix, and looks like I'm on the hook for the fix. Feeling really frustrated. I would feel differently if it was just my car with a service airbag light. Now I have to pay for diagnostics and the repair so my car will pass inspection. any advice or help would be great. I've owned a lot of GM trucks and cars. We currently have my Camaro, 2015 Impala LTZ, and a 96 C1500. My wife and I went to Dodge/ Jeep for a few vehicles, but came back to Chevy. Never had any issues with my Chevys until now. Very dissatisfied.

Airbag light to being very dissatisfied, relax, things happen to all vehicles. Check your inspection guidelines. Here in La. the air bag light will not fail the vehicle for inspection.

All over an air bag? Have them diagnosis it and go from there.
To get upset over this, wow wait till the Abs or Cel light comes on..

There is a service
bulletin to re-flash the PCM for this. I had it done and the light went away.
All you have to do is have the dealer apply all updates to your PCM.

So the dealer told me my car won't pass safety inspection with the light on. From calling Firestone, and a couple of local shops they said it will pass. My dissatisfaction comes more from the warranty and the dealer. The warranty covers everything but the airbag. My luck I guess. I understand stuff breaks. It just sucks there has been several other cars with the same issue, and the fix comes out of my pocket. I'm 6 months from retiring from the Army. So any extra money I have set a side is for, well I guess stuff like this.

I asked the service rep about this and he rolled his eyes. That's why I said I was dissatisfied. I just asked him about the TSB, and he started acting like an ass. Not the only Chevy dealer in the area. Someone else will get my business.

I am a Gm tech, these cars have an ECM and that being updated with newer software has no fix to rectify an air bag concern.
Op what code is setting in the SDM?

My light came on at 600 miles. I'm told the airbags themselves have to be replaced, and they are unsure of when they will come in.

I am a former Automotive Quality Engineer.
They found code B2470 on my Camaro, removed and replaced coax cable behind glove, removed fuse and re-installed, applied updates, checked cable connector x-256,
Service Bulletin clearly states do not replace module or airbags. 10-09-41-001B, 09-08-44-15A, 09-06-03-004B.
Doc. ID 2368166 #PIC5281.
Some have even removed and reconnected the connectors under the seat, to fix this.

These things were discussed before you even knew there was a Camaro5 in 2009.
I forgot, you remove and replace Techs know everything.

Do a search, there is an extensive "service airbag" thread on this site.

It required a fuse pull and a re-programming of the SDM module for less sensitivity.
Service air Bag light is now gone.
Thanks to Camaro5 i found this bulletin.

The Recall is also for convertible wind noise and brackets tearing tops.

Oh great, an engineer in here knows it all. I fix your guys fk ups daily.I won't bore you with my credentials in the automotive field, what I said and is true, is you said there is a PCM update , mister engineer that is a power train control module . The bulletin you have is a sensing and diagnostic module reflashing of the SDM. Differnet module . Oh and this car has a ecm and tcm. Not a pcm..

So, just got my car back from the dealer, had the steering wheel air bag and the SIR coil replaced due to high resistance in the deployment loop. Light is off. I have noticed one small concern that I am hoping the community here can answer. As I was driving it home, I noticed the steering wheel is off slightly to the right. I remember back when I worked at a dealer that the steering wheels could only be installed in one specific place. Is this still common practice? I can deal with it being slightly off if it has nothing to do with the coil replacement, but will insist on it being fixed if it has to do with the service.
