The passenger side airbag sensor failed in my 2007 Saturn Sky. The car has approximately 27K miles and failed when my 7 year old son sat in the seat as we were getting ready to leave on errands. The cost to fix the sensor is prohibitively expensive and is occuring more and more frequently in this family of cars. This causes the airbag not to function with a passenger in the car. In the event of a wreck the airbag not deploying could cause the fatality of the passenger.

Service air bag warning appears on dash with no passenger in the vehicle. The warning appears every time I start the car. When a passenger is in the vehicle the passenger air bag indicator always reads "off".

The airbag sensor shuts off. Used to be periodic but now appears to be permanently off. Started happening right after recall repaired on the ignition switch.

The passenger presence sensor has failed in my vehicle. Any passenger in the car faces added risk if an accident were to occur. It is prohibitively costly (my estimate from the dealership is $800) to do this repair. Given the frequency of this identical failure across this vehicle platform, I find it to be a manufacturer's defect and request their assistance.

Just driving out of parking lot and service airbag light illuminated. It appears as though a very significant number of other Pontiac solstice and Saturn Sky owners share this problem and it is apparently a $1000 fix for a known design defect. This should be a recall.

The contact owns a 2007 Saturn Sky. Immediately after starting the vehicle, the air bar light illuminated. The vehicle was taken to the dealer. The technician diagnosed that the air bag module was defective and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 36,000.

  • 65,945 miles
Initial incident occurred while I had a passenger in the front right seat driving at 35 mph. Three beeps from and a 'service air bag' warning message displayed on my dash. After stopping and shutting off my car, the warning did not appear when I started it again. Exactly two weeks later, the same thing happened again when riding with a passenger, but this time the warning did not go away after restarting my vehicle. Now, the warning comes up every time I start my vehicle. This is a known issue with Saturn Sky and Pontiac solstice models. As it relates to passenger safety, should immediately be recalled.

Service airbag light is on. This is a known problem with other Sky owners. I have not heard about a recall from GM, even though GM has recalls for the same part on other models.

Passenger seat occupancy sensor failed. It is a known issue with these cars and GM has done nothing about it.

problem #94

Apr 152015

Sky

  • 45,500 miles
The sensor in the passenger seat failed, giving an airbag warning indicator light. Nobody was in the seat and it was not being used at the time of the failure. This is the second 2007 GM vehicle I had that failed at around the 40,000 mile mark for the same part. The passenger seat sensor is defective. I've read about many Saturn Sky and Pontiac solstice owners having the exact same problem. Dealer refuses to repair as vehicle is out of warranty by months, not miles.

- Biloxi, MS, USA

problem #93

May 012015

Sky

  • 37,000 miles
I was pulling out of my driveway when I noticed the warning light to "service airbags" I went to the dealer who said it is not a recall so far. They wanted $110 just to check for the problem, but did not include labor if needed. This is a safety issue and should be a recall free to owners!!
