problem #5

Sep 102009

Silverado 3500

  • 31,060 miles


The 'service air bag┐ started to be displayed frequently beginning early September 2009 on my 2005 Chevrolet 3500. I notified my local dealer on Sept 10, 2009 and the vehicle was serviced on September 11. The diagnose was a faulty ┐frontal sensor┐. on October 31, 2009 the 'service brake system┐ displayed and the ABS light would not go out on the same vehicle. This was accompanied along with an annoying repeating beep sound. I contacted my local dealer again and informed of the problem. After several stopping and restarting of the engine the lights went out. On November 8, my 'service air bag┐ message displayed multiple times through out the day. The truck is scheduled for another service appointment. Is there a problem with the electrical system?

At 38,000 miles on 2004 Chevy Silverado Z71 the air bag light came on and would not go off. The rear view mirror which tells if someone is riding on the passenger front is off. There is no way to tell if they will work when needed or not.

The contact owns a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. While driving on a steep curve he had to panic brake to avoid going over an embankment. The brakes locked and would not allow the vehicle to slow down or stop. The vehicle hit the ground and proceeded to flip over. The vehicle is equipped with driver and passenger side air bags. Upon impact the front air bags did not deploy. The vehicle has not been inspected to determine why the brakes locked up or why the air bags did not deploy. He has not contacted the manufacturer or the service dealer.
