Postby koolz71 [OP] » Jan 08 2011, 4:19pm

The other day my service airbag message appeared in the DIC and the light came on. I have no idea whats going on..looking for ideas..and I already let the thought cross my mind of setting it on fire and rolling it down a hill..so yeah lol..Ive tried some ideas i found online..supposedly there is a wire that grounds out by the parking brake, but it checked out ok. Any ideas let me know.
Crap, my hampster fell off the wheel and it broke its leg.

One very common airbag problem is what's called a "clock spring" which is in the steering column right under the steering wheel. It's called that because it simply looks like a clock spring that winds and unwinds. This is how they could make a positive electrical connection to the airbag and still be able to turn the wheel back and forth. It should also feed power to any other steering wheel connections (horn, cruise, etc). See if those things are working. If not, it's probably the clock spring.

To replace it requires pulling the steering wheel...not a real easy DIY project.

Well i think im closer to solving the problem....I noticed today that the passenger air bag sensor isnt working..shows it off while the passanger (my wife) is sitting there. I do know i was moving the seat back and forth trying to dig something out between the console and seat the same day this happened..so im hoping i pulled a wire.

may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the
equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin
applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the
