DIC:: SERVICE AIR BAG - Familiar to anyone?

I have a 2006 NA Solstice (now DDM SC'ed) with 58000+ kilometres and had the Air Bag idiot light come on along with the "Service Air Bag" message on the DIC.

This happened when I went over some extremely rough paved roads on a run this weekend. The idiot light and message on DIC has stayed on now for the last 5 days. I am assuming this is a electrical issue somewhere with the mulitple of sensors.

As I am afraid to touch this circuit, I will taking in for service Monday.

Curious if this has this happened to anyone?

I've seen posts on this about the Passenger seat sensor control unit failing (under the seat). You could check the contacts - maybe something worked loose over the bumps?

My passenger seat sensor has been replaced twice. The second time it was out of warranty but the dealer replaced it for free anyway.

My passenger sensor also failed after a bumpy road. Warranty covered it.

Ive had the passenger presence sensor go out on mine,ive also had the clock spring go out in the steering wheel short out twice. The first time it happened it lost all controls on the wheel, the second time(at 60mph in a light rain) the horn started blowing and before i could find a place to pull off and unplug the horn the airbag light flashed twice and the drivers bag deployed. Very exciting. Get the car scanned with a Tech II, don't take the airbag system lightly.

Mine is going to the dealer tomorrow for the airbag light in addition to the check engine. They are unrelated as the check engine has been coming on and off for a while, and is the O2 sensor (Dashawk shows the same code when O2 sensor was replaced in my Acadia).

Oh, and the wheel well is cracked in two spots by the screws the used to secure it so I'm going to see if I can get that replaced as well. Hopefully all under warranty since it's a 2008.

Confirming it was the passenger seat sensor - kit has been ordered and will be installed this week. My sol is now out of warranty. Kit is approx $170.

Thanks for the information in the thread guys!

Dealer told me my light was caused by the ribbon cable for the steering wheel airbag. I'll pick up the car tomorrow. Anyone else have the same problem?

hello, i am from Greece and i have a solstice GXP 07. i have the same problem. service airbag on DIC and passenger airbag always off. the biggest problem is that here in Greece there is no dealer for Pontiac and i haven't found someone who can read airbag codes to find from where it is the problem. i can't just order a sensor and pay so much without knowing if THIS is the problem. If anyone can help me please.......

It's a link to GM service manual where you could study the diagnostics and might be able to find a work-around for your problem.

Has anyone orders the 19124219 kit and installed it themselves? Will the car recognize the new part?
