The contact owns a 2006 Pontiac Solstice. The contact stated that while driving at various speeds, the air bag warning light illuminated. In addition, the warning chime sounded which indicated that the seat belt was not latched. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 35,000.

On Nov 2014 I bought this Pontiac roadster from the original owner with the air bag lights on with a mere 32500 miles on it, I drove the car 1 month & parked it for the winter, last week 3-30-2015 I took it to my shop to have the air bag lite code scanned & it read faulty seat rear seat belt module GM part # 15874981-15838918 & would not clear, I called GM to find out it was not under warranty or recall & it was over a 800 $ fix, I was shocked ! I looked up this problem on the internet only to find alot of the same complaints from the 3 years in service on the Solstice & sky's all saying the same thing, faulty air bag passenger seat module, this is a GM problem that is totally unsafe car to drive, it needs recalled asap as I understand I have no air bags & no seat belt tensioner also, im scared of this car & I am on a fixed income and can not afford to fix it, there gotta be a way GM can fix this so at least I can have air bags & seat belt tension to the driver at the very least, my wife is afraid to drive in this car with me, I refuse to sell this car until its fixed & safe, if GM will not fix this I will not buy another GM, they only made this car 3 years & they need all the safety features it can have up & running properly, how dare GM not to fix this car in Nov with the faulty ignition switch & not fix this air bag safety feature while it was in the GM shop, also am I correct that the seat belt tensioners upon impact will not work w/O the air bags working ? do you realize how many of these cars are on the road with the seat belt & air bags not working. This needs fixed asap by a recall !!! this is a very serious safety problem that GM needs to fix, sincerely [xxx] age 52 information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

The issue is that the passenger seat belt light is on. Just one day we got message service air bag. I have seen recalls on 2009 and other complaints 2006 but have not seen recall on my year. There was no one in the passenger seat when this happened.
