2009 Pontiac G8 - 6G2EC57Y89L - Air Bags Problems

VIN: 6G2EC57Y89L
Location: Woodinville, WA
Miles: 35200
Date Reported: August 20th, 2012


Description of Problem

Air bag fault occurred and displayed in two places on my dash when i started my g8 to go to work. I had not driven this g8 in a month and just a few weeks prior to the last time it was driven i had another airbag recall performed. Took g8 to the dealership to find out the passenger sensor module had a short circuit in it. Unknown to me all the vehicle airbags were disabled with this fault per the service tech. It seems terrible unsafe to disable all airbags for a passenger sensing module. It should fail active rather than fail passive for safety. I have also found numerous reports of this module failing near the time of warranty expiration not necessarily after. Though mine was after by date not mileage.
