2007 Cadillac Sts. Consumer writes in regards to airbag sensor indicator light repair/cost issues. The consumer was informed the air bag sensor which was causing the air bag light to illuminate was not covered and it would cost $ $850.

Service airbag system light remains on at startup. Periodically the light will not remain on but more often than not it remains on. When light remains on the vehicle may be stationary or in motion.

Passenger air bag warning light - dealer will not fix for less than $800. Same issue as 2007 Cadillac cts. See below. This was a company car built early for employee evaluation. I am sure it was the same seat system General Motors is recalling certain model year 2005-2007 Cadillac cts vehicles. Some of these vehicles have a condition in which repeated flexing of the passenger sensing system mat in the front passenger seat may cause the mat to kink, bend, or fold. This flexing can break the connections in the mat. If this occurs, the sensor may not detect the presence of a front seat passenger and will disable the air bag.

I replace my airbag sensor in the passenger seat, this is a $600 part. On year later this part needs to be replaced again. When reading the GM Cadillac forum this has been a problem for Cadillac for sometime. Failure of this part can result in the airbag not deploying in an accident.

When the car is started the service air bag light stays on. I have to shut the car off and exit the car re-enter re-seat myself and my passenger(wife) several times. Sometimes the error goes away and sometime it does not. This car has the same problems the 2007 Cadillac cts had and there was a recall. These cars may have the same air bags as the afore mentioned cts. The internet forums talk of this same problem for the Sts. www.cadillacforums.com/forums/Cadillac-Sts-forum-2005-through-2012/221597-service-airbag-light.html service airbag warning light 10 post April 11, 2013 service airbag light 8 post Sep 23,2012 red airbag light stays on!" 5 post Feb 3, 2010 service air bag 13 post Nov 24, 2008 just google "Cadillac Sts service airbag light". if there is this much being said out there how many more have just gone to their dealers and had the problem fixed" this is a very serious issue. The dealer tells me this message states that the air bag will not deploy. If the air bag systems used in the 2007 cts (recalled) are the same as used in the 2007 Sts, the recall should have included the 2007 Sts. Just my thought please help thank you in advance

The contact owns a 2007 Cadillac Sts. While driving approximately 45 mph and when a when a passenger was in the seat the passenger side air bag light was off. The vehicle was taken to the dealer three times. Once the dealer calibrated the sensor, a second time they advised him that they could not duplicated the failure. After leaving the dealership the failure happened again. He took the vehicle back to the dealer who stated that he performed a diagnostic test but the vehicle showed no failures. He called the manufacturer and they referred him back to the dealer. The failure had occurred since last month. The vehicle was at the dealer when the complaint was filed. The failure mileage was 26,025 and the current mileage was 26,900.
