I have had this issue, as well. Sometimes she'll shift positions in the seat and deactivate the bag. Yikes!I assume It's because the seat does not sense the weight of a smaller stature female to automatically turn the air bag on. I noticed this when I first got my car. My wife is very petite.
Thats a good question and I'd like to +1 that if anyone has an idea (as well as keeping VIM in tact...)does anyone know what the fix involves at this point? my question more or less involves keeping my tune intact.
that is the info i was looking for! thank youWorking for an airbag supplier to GM, I can tell you that this recall does not involve the seat weight sensor. It only involves the airbag control unit (ACU). The unit is located in between the two front seats under the center compartment. The dealer will only need to plug into this module to reflash a new airbag firing algorithm onto it. So they will not have to take apart the instrument panel or plug into the OBD port, but maybe the center console to gain access to the unit It is pretty significant problem to have the airbag fire at the wrong time. I'd be happy to answer anymore questions anyone has.
All you folks with light-weight spouses need to encourage them to eat more and the airbag issue will go away. :judge:I have had this issue, as well. Sometimes she'll shift positions in the seat and deactivate the bag. Yikes!
