Ok motorheads.......got me a question........

couple days ago all of a sudden i light pops up on my dash and then where the odometer is it says "service air bag".

what kind of issue is this??? sensor of some sort???? truck wasnt bumped or hit nor was there anything out of usual done to it. the manual has all kinds of info about the passenger air bag and the only thing it has about the drivers side is if you do all kinds of non factory crap to it???///

Google it for your year of truck.  Have never had that happen.  My light keep coming on if Jake is in the seat.  He is only 60 lbs so barely heavy enough.

NAPA has a code reader you could buy. It will tell you which codes are showing and you can clear them using it too. Around $55.00. Or just try taking the negative cable off the battery.  :happy1:

Well, I did the Google machine,  it says it could a seat belt issue, bad wire or sensor. With what I have to deal with to disconnect the negative cable,  since I'll need a new battery this winter I'll replace the battery. Thinking a trip to O'Reilly tomorrow iffin it ain't raining.

I yanked on the drivers side seat belt, so we shall see  :scratch:

Iowaboy to the rescue.  He texted me, apparently a sensor nut/ bolt is corroded and thinks it's an inexpensive fix. It'll have to wait till I get back from the cabin.

 :scratch: This says there's 7 reasons why your airbag light could be on https://www.autonationmobileservice.com/i/blog/airbag-light/ Actually, it looks like it's a pretty common problem..........................especially on Chevys. :sleazy: :evil:          :nerd: ;) :smiley:

Most likely you need a front impact sensor Glenn. Let me know what the actual codes is via text or whatever.

Oh and for the record fellers if the light is on the bags will not work. So handle that as you wish just letting you know its back to the old fashioned hang on tight and you might eat the steering wheel.

Just have to tell you Glenn.  When I first saw the "air bags" I thought it may be something different completely.   :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:
