AIRBAG SERVICE REQUIRED DTC. PROBLEM IS WITH THE PPS SYSTEM IN THE PASSENGER SEAT. PROBLEM HAS BEEN WIDELY REPORTED FOR THESE CARS, AS WELL AS, OTHER GM PRODUCTS. THIS CONDITION EFFECTIVELY RENDERS THE AIRBAG PROTECTION OF THE PASSENGER SEAR INOPERATIVE EVEN IF THE SEAT IS OCCUPIED. GM IS AWARE THE PROBLEM AND THEIR DEALERS WANT APPROXIMATELY BETWEEN $800 AND $1,000 TO REPLACE THE FAILED SEAT COMPONENTS. THEY FAIL BECAUSE THE DESIGN IS FAULTY IN THAT THE SENSOR PAD SENSOR CONDUCTIVE PATHWAYS SUFFER BREAKAGE. THE FORUM BLOG FOR OWNERS WITH THIS PROBLEM IS AN EXCELLENT SOURCE, INCLUDING PICTURES OF THE COMPONENT FAILURE AND POOR DESIGN, THAT CAN BE FOUND AT HTTP://WWW.SOLSTICEFORUM.COM/FORUM/F12/PANSSENGER-AIRBAG-SENSOR-75353/ .

IN JANUARY 2014..MY PASSENGER AIRBAG LIGHT CAME ON THE DIC SAYING TO SERVICE AIRBAG??? I HAVE VERY FEW PASSENGERS FROM TIME TO TIME..MAYBE THREE A MONTH..NONE ARE HEAVY ENOUGH AS TO PLOP DOWN ON SEAT WITH ENOUGH WEIGHT TO INFLICT DAMAGE ON WHATEVER THE PROBLEM MAY BE!!! ALSO, WHEN I CLEAN THE CAR, I MAKE CERTAIN AS TO NOT KNEEL OR PUT ANY SORT OF WEIGHT AS TO BREAK THE CIRCUIT IN WHICH I'VE BEEN READING ABOUT ALL THE MANY OTHERS!!! HAS ANYBODY GIVEN ANY THOUGHT THAT MAYBE IT'S A DEFAULT?? IT HAPPENS SO VERY OFTEN WITH MANY OF THE OTHER AUTOMOBILES...SO WHAT MAKES OUR CAR ANY DIFFERENT??? IT HAPPENS!!! AS MY WORD, I DID NOTHING IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM TO DAMAGE IT!!!! I LOVE MY SOLSTICE, BUT IF NOTHING IS DONE ABOUT THIS, I , MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND WHOEVER ELSE I MAY INFORM WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH GM AGAIN..SORRY, BUT THIS JUST ISN'T RIGHT...SAFETY!!!LOL
