2005 Hummer H2 Owner Comments

Air bag control module nla oem 12249649. After a rain I started up my parked vehicle the service air bag listed in the driver information center as well as the red warning lamp turn and stayed on I am the original owner and have never been in any crash. Took to both GM dealer and independent shop with the same response of a replacement was not available. In my research I have found the same issue with other 2005 owners and have contacted the GM help line (case number 8-2560253832) to no avail. My local GM dealer tried several leads but were all dead ends. Previous years of this same model vehicle have this component available but will not fit the 2005 year model as I am told.

A problem with nearly all Hummer H2S is roof leak, there is a drainage system to drain the water thru the vehicle. This clogs up periodically and the water drains into the vehicle and ends up on the front floorboard. The airbag sensor diagnostic module is mounted on the floorboard directly under the drivers seat. If this gets wet, which it does, the module is ruined and renders the airbags inoperable. This has happened to my vehicle and I am sure many others. If this module is not in working order it has to be replaced, however, General Motors has discontinued making the airbag sensor diagnostic module for the 2005 Hummer H2 model year!. I am sure I am not the only person (owner) caught up in this situation. The vehicle is still operative and drivable. Airbag sensor diagnostic module should be available and manufacture should ensure it is available. The vehicle is only 10 years old and if I owned a prior year the module is still available. It is a safety issue because of where it is located in the vehicle and manufacture knowledge of leak problems, and only one year discontinued. I have contacted General Motors and there reply was "sorry". it very apparent General Motors has no regard for the safety of their customers!
