ONBOARD WARNING.... AIR BAG FAULT. WHEN THIS APPEARS THE AIR BAGS WILL NOT ACTIVATE DURING AN ACCIDENT..... APPARENTLY THIS PROBLEM IS EXTREMELY COMMON IN A LOT OF GM CARS, EVEN THOUGH A RECALL BACK IN 2011 WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE TAKEN CARE OF THE PROBLEM. PERHAPS THEY DID NOT FIX THE PROBLEM PROPERLY IN THE FIRST PLACE. GM SHOULD CREATE ANOTHER RECALL TO DIAGNOSE AND FIX THE PROBLEM PERMANENTLY.

4/13/2016 - JOHNSON CREEK, WI
WENT TO START MY VEHICLE YESTERDAY, AND SOUNDLY AN AIRBAG FAILURE SHOWED UP IN THE DRIVER INFO CENTER. WENT ONLINE AND THIS MAKE AND MODEL HAS TONS OF OTHER VEHICLES WITH THE SAME ISSUE, AND THEY WANT TO CHARGE CONSUMERS A LARGE AMOUNT OF MONEY TO FIX SOMETHING THAT HAS NEVER BEEN USED IN MY VEHICLE. THEY ARE TRYING TO AVOID THE RECALL AS IT WILL COST THEM. THIS IS STRAIGHT UNFAIR THAT THEY SOURCE CHEAP MODULES, AND WHEN FAILURE OCCURS, SOMETIMES MULTIPLE TIMES AFTER FACTORY REPLACEMENT OF NEW SENSORS AND MODULES, THEY STICK IT ON THE CONSUMER. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP US CONSUMERS AS THIS IS NOT AN ISOLATED INCIDENT, AND NOW I HAVE NO AIRBAGS IN MY VEHICLE BECAUSE I CANNOT AFFORD THE AMOUNT THEY WANT TO FIX THE MODULE. PLEASE HELP US CONSUMERS AND MAKE THEM TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR DECISIONS. THANK YOU

4/6/2016 - ATLANTA, GA
THE AIRBAG SENSOR COMES ON AS SOON AS THE CAR IS STARTED AND NEVER GOES OFF. THE AIR BAGS ARE DEACTIVATED DURING THIS TIME CREATING A SAFETY ISSUE. THEY WILL NOT INFLATE IF YOU'RE IN AN ACCIDENT. THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THE AIRBAG SENSOR UNDER THE PASSENGER SEAT. A RECALL NEEDS TO BE ISSUED.
