06 Silverado "SERVICE AIR BAG"

10 posts in this topic

Started the truck yesterday morning and the Service air bag lite up the display box. The red indicator symbol also lite up. I'm assuming this is something that should be looked at. should it be taken to a dealership, or can any service technician take care of it. Will the air bags still work if I can't get it in for a couple of days? Thanks

Any decent shop with good scanning equipment should be able to at least get you pointed in the right direction. Some shops are still leery about working on them do to the liability concerns.

When the light is on the system is disabled and will not function if needed. There is a slim to none chance that the system can deploy unexpectedly and for no reason. Again this is slim to none but still possible.

Depending on what the issue actually is it still could deploy in a crash. I had a wire break on the seat position sensor under the driver seat on my truck. It was used to determine what stage on the 2 stage airbag would deploy in a crash (if the seat is back it deploys faster, closer at a reduced speed). Because of the broken wire, it would have deployed at the slower rate (as if the seat were closer). As airjer stated, any shop with scanning equipment will be able to determine what code is actually being set and they should be able to troubleshoot from there.

Not sure if chevrolet's are like hondas but if you have something sitting on the passenger seat it may throw a code. The computer senses some weight on the seat but not in the back rest and can set a code. Either that or it's a cable reel. Who know's but good luck.

And by the way Airjers second answer was by far the most correct if not safest answer ever........."will not function as intended, if at all"!..............I loved that one. Recorded and in play for future reference.

I called a dealership the other day and talked to the service department. He had the same info as previous posters. the shop was booked for the day. He also said that sometimes the sensors "will reset after a few more uses sometimes" . Could just be me but he did not seem to urgent to get it in to his shop to have it looked at. The light and indicator lite have been out for two days now so I'll just keep an eye on it. Thanks for the help all!!!!

I also had mine come on a couple of years ago (before the broken wire issue) when it was about -20 up north. I had gotten the truck washed before heading up north, so the cold/water may have messed with the sensors in the front. Once the truck warmed up, the light went off and never came back on. No code was even stored.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
