Service Air Bag Light

2007 4x4 Silverado 1500 not HD

Service Air Bag Light

Postby Rol Page [OP] » Sep 14 2012, 3:18am

My Service Air Bag light has been on for a couple of weeks and I got tired of ignoring it so I paid $71. for a private shop to diagnose code B0083. Then they estimated $208 for a new sensor plus $49 labor to install.. Plus tax.. I was warned about putting non GM parts in "We can't guarantee what that will do to your computer"..

I called a local GM dealer and they quoted $166.75 for the sensor, P/N 15297468 and I did not ask about labor. Found GM Parts center in Kansas and ordered the OEM part for $142.50 including shipping.

Can anyone tell me where this part is located and how to replace it? I hope that it just snaps into a connector when I find it. If all else fails I can take the new part back to the private shop and have them do it for the $49 plus tax..

Thanks in advance for any help. Rol

According to the part description it is mounted on the front radiator support. Here is what I am basing my statement off of:

CK1,2,3 INFLATABLE RESTRAINT SYSTEM; (SENSOR,INFL RST F/END DISCRM(MT ON FRT RAD SUPT)(USE T/W CONN 15306384). Required: 02

Four year old post, I would imagine he fixed it or scrapped it. :lol:

Did you have yours scanned? Are you sure it's the same problem?

Replacing crash sensors is common, specially in the rust belt, but only after getting it diagnosed properly.

They are dead easy to replace.

I was hoping he had the problem diagnosed and could give me some insight what to look for but from what I have been reading in all the post about air bag warning light and air bag needing service, it could be a number of things.

Next step will be to either buy a scan tool or have it scanned.

I am in the rust belt .

Odds are the front crash sensors are rusting themselves to death, but get it scanned before wasting any money on parts that you may not need. You need an uplevel scanner to read SRS codes, cheap code readers will not work.

Thanks, I have never used a scanner but it's never too late to learn.
I read a few posts on here about scanners that folks have recommended , is there a dollar amount I should be looking to spend if I want to own one for my own personal use?

Dormann sells them for half the price of new. Most parts stores even stock them.

Install is simple 1 10mm bolt but its kind of a tight spot can be a pain to access. 5min install tops.

I had the code scanned for free at a local repair shop, I bought the Dorman part on Amazon $54.78 (Dorman 590-222 Front Impact Sensor ), I disconnected the ground on the battery before the install, removed the plastic shroud under the radiator(4 bolts), total repair time, 30 min.
Hardest part...getting the code scanned correctly, when that air bag warning light shows up on the dash,it could be many issues such as the clock spring in steering wheel, which impact sensor in front behind the grille, the tech that diagnosed my problem was using a SnapOn code reader, it took him a few min to find out where the problem was.

I'm not a mechanic but just by doing some homework, looking on Youtube, do a Google search and ofcourse here, I was able to save a few bucks...enough to go and buy a new pistol ;)
