Seat belt and airbag light came on and then I got a message to service air bags. Car has been making a noise in steering column and also a clunk at times in steering column. I am wondering if air bags will work in a crash" service air bag message gone now along with the light"

The "service air bag" light suddenly appeared on or about the above date. The light above the center of the windshield displays "passenger airbag off". the car has never been in an accident. I do not drive due to a self imposed decision relating to medical problems. My wife is 63 Y/O and a very careful driver with a "safe driver" drivers license (mine is also designated in this way). I am a passenger in the car about 99% of the time she is driving. Neither of us can recall a time when anything occurred that would have set this off.

Service air bag light came on. Took vehicle to dealer. Vehicle air bag module and connector replaced under warranty.service air bag light has come on and off several times over past few months. Currently light is back on and continues to stay on. This recurring situation indicates a problem with the vehicle's air bag system that should qualify for a recall. The integrity of the air bag system is obviously in question and personal safety is being compromised.

  • 45,000 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Buick Lucerne. The contact stated that the check air bag light illuminated while driving 15 mph. She took the vehicle to the mechanic and was informed that it was a common issue. She was advised to have the dealer make the repairs. The dealer stated that there was an issue with one of the computers in the vehicle that could prevent the air bags from deploying in the event of a crash. During this time, the contact heard a very loud clunking noise coming from the steering component. The vehicle was taken to a dealer and they stated that they could not repair the vehicle since it was out of warranty. The contact believes that this is a manufacturer defect, but the manufacturer is refusing responsibility. The failure mileage was 45,000 and current mileage was 72,000.
