I had passenger seat airbag recall completed, about 3 months ago , no one has sat in passenger seat since , the other day I pulled car out of garage to clean garage and went for a ride around the block , as I was driving , beep sounded and service airbag light came on as did air bag symbol , after trying to figure things out , I see that my passenger air bag light goes on when sitting in passenger seat and off when not , my question is, can this be a problem with driver airbag sensor ? cannot find any info concerning drivers side airbag , when searching it always comes up with passenger seat airbag , not sure which sensor side . Thnks

There is no sensor on the driver side... there will always be an adult driver, so the airbag is always engaged. Given the on/off status of the passenger side, it would imply that the sensor mat is fine. This sounds like a problem elsewhere in the system. You'll probably need to go to the dealer to read the codes - I doubt a regular OBD reader will show anything for this.

There is no driver airbag sensor, but there are bunch of different air bag components that could be generating that message. Best to take it to a GM shop and have them run it through their diagnostics.

There is no driver airbag sensor because when the car is being operated it is assumed that there is a driver in the driver seat.
