The airbag service needed light went on. I've only had the vehicle for 2 and a half years. The light is on when I'm driving or when I turn on the car

The service airbag alert comes on for no reason, then goes off. It came back on again and did not go off. I drive speeds of 30 to 60 mph. My lights on the dash and radio dims and the radio cutoff at any given time. This is very serious problems because the vehcile can cut off while I am driving. I also experience water pouring into to my Traverse right over my front over head lamps inside. There was so much water it filled the cup holder and the shift was wet. The front windshield has never been changed and I don't have any cracks on my front window. I have no clue how the water is coming into my Traverse from the top and leaking in through the front over head lamps. I have brought it into the dealership, 1 day ago I still have not heard back from anyone. I asked if it was common, with the Traverse and I was told no. I obviously they lied, because I had to come on this website to see that other people are experiencing the same problems. I am not a car expert but the man at the dealership that has been doing this line of work for 30+ years said he could smell the water has soon has he sat in the vehicle. So obviously water has been leaking in from some where for a while now to be able to smell the water. I keep my car very clean and my carpets are dry. So the water must be coming in somewhere from the roof and staying reserved in a particular area until it pours out. The water may be the reason I am having the other issues, and may be each problems is not related at all. It is very frustrating because I am paying car note on a car that is am skeptical about driving because I don't know if it safe to drive. I have not only my safety to worry about I also have my children safety consider and other people that ride in this vehicle too. The lights dims while driving or when idling. The service air bag light is on all the time when driving, idling, or in park.

While driving normally at a speed of 35mph, a message saying "service air bag" began appearing in the dic and the airbag light began coming on and off on the dash and over the next couple days occurred more often until now it stays on constantly. I have read multiple other complaints stating exactly the same thing or something very similar. This is obviously a manufacturing issue and needs to be a recall. Instead, now I get to schedule service and pay for a manufacturers defect out of pocket.

Airbag warning light indicator came on today, 10/25/16. Nothing happened to cause the light to come on and the dealership states that the airbag has become inoperable. Seems like a lot of issues reported and even a recall on earlier models. Wife was about 2 miles from house when indicator came on driving 55-60 down highway. Unknown what the issue is at this time but definitely a safety issue for the airbag to become inoperable. Has to be a faulty part as no accidents to cause a issue.

Add my car to the list of 2014 Traverses with the service airbag message. This should be a recall.

I have had this vehicle serviced 8 times for the "service airbag" light coming on repeatedly. They have replaced much of the system and the light is still on. This is a safety issue and the problem cannot be permanently corrected.

My service airbag light came on, and then would go off and bag on again. I took it to a dealership and they said that drivers side airbag was bad and I bought my car about 18 months ago brand new. I was 10,000 miles over warranty, so the dealership said that it was not covered and I had to pay for the repair. An airbag issue is not a wear and tear issue! now 3 weeks after having it serviced my service airbag light is on again! I have 3 small kids in my car every day and I am worried to be driving it. I think that GM should take care of this issue!!

Since buying this vehicle, my service airbag light has been on. I've taken it in three times to the dealership I purchased it from and once to another dealership to no avail. My tire light /warning also continues to show despite the dealership not finding a problem.

Traverse 6-cyl

  • 48,000 miles
While the vehicle is in operation in any driving condition the airbag service indicator warning light came on and stayed on. This was intermittent at first and then stayed on after a few days. Dealer will not cover this key safety component failure. This seems to be related to the last recall for airbag failure on the 2009-2013 Traverse model vehicles made this year. The recall fixes the yellow wire harness connector failure by cutting it away and splicing the wires together. There are now technical bulletins out for the 2014 Traverses that seem to have the same issue.

Dealer has told me that the vehicle registers an error code of B0022. According to the dealer, GM tells them to check four wires on the connectors to the front passenger seat wiring harness that causes the check airbag warning light to illuminate. Specifically, GM tells the dealer to solder the connections on the four wires on the connector. The dealer has also told me that if the warning light for the air bag system is illuminated, none of the airbags will deploy. In my opinion this is a serious design flaw. If the airbag warning light is illuminated and you have an accident before the problem is corrected this could result in major injuries. Also, a connector termination problem is a manufacturing defect and should be corrected by the dealer, especially in a critical safety system such as the airbag system.

Service airbag light came on, the dashboard panel.. took my vehicle to haley auto mall in farmville va. They diagnosed and found code B0015 and charged me to fix it. I feel like this issue should have been covered under warranty or by Chevrolet. Should not have been an out of pocket expense from me. If someone could please contact me at [xxx] I would appreciate it. Thank you information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The contact owns a 2014 Chevrolet Traverse. The contact indicated that the fuel gauge failed to work and displayed less fuel when the fuel tank was full.

The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 100.
