I was wheeling yesterday through some canyons when I happened to notice that my air bag light was stuck on! I immediately pulled the SIR fuse to prevent the bags from deploying for whatever reason. The FSM says that if the light stays on that there is some sort of failure in the system and that the air bags may not work in an accident or they may go off without warning ( not good ). I will be taking the truck in very soon, but I was just curious if anyone else has had this problem. Thanks, Steve.

Well guess what, the next morning when I started my truck no air bag light, and when they checked it out they told me that there were no codes stored and they could'nt find anything wrong. The light has never come back on, but I would still like to know what happened.
My Hypertech definitely read P0126. Maybe it's not designed to pick up B codes?HenryJ wrote:SIR trouble codes should be "B" codes
Are you sure it is not DTC B0026?
None of the SIR codes are triple digit all B00XX , except for B1001

They want $300 for the module and $300 for labor, and apparently extended warranties won't cover any problems within the air bag system. This is a major safety item, and I can't believe neither GM nor my extended warranty will cover this. Right now my air bag system is completely disabled because of this failure and won't work in an accident. Has anyone here ever replaced this module? Every time I have been off road on very bumpy trails the light would come on and then go off after a day or two. I think the module failed do to the vibrations.
It depends on why it's on in the first place. If the control module has gone bad like mine, then it will never go off until the module is replaced. When the light is on (for any reason), the whole SRS system is completely disabled and won't work in an accident. When I first got my CC the light would occasionally come on after driving on really bumpy dirt roads, or driving through deep water, but then it would usually turn off after a day or two. I now realize that the control module was probably starting to fail way back then.
Well at least you wouldn't have to look at that stupid light anymore.barch97 wrote:So, if I just pull the fuse, the light will go off, therefore fixing the problem?
my warranty ran out about two years ago
