HiCustomer Thank you for asking your question on JustAnswer.
Hello, it really depends on the code that they are finding when they scan the system to see what is going on with the system. There is a factory bulleting regarding the air bag system, but it would only apply if the codes on the list are what they are finding when they scan the system.

This PI was superseded to update models. Please discard PIT4011E.
The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
You may experience an intermittent or current SIR indicator on the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) with DTC B0012 0E, b0013 0E, b0016 0E, b0019 0E, b0020 0E, b0022, b0023 0E, B0033 0E, B0040 0E, or B0042 set in the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM).
Note: This PI only applies to the DTCs as listed above. Example, if you have a dtc B0022 symptom 0D, this pi DOES NOT apply because it is only for a B0022. DTCs B0022 and B0042 will not have symptom codes because they are for older models like the Trailblazer, Envoy, etc, and did not use symptom codes.
Inspect for a loose, missing, or broken Connector Position Assurance (CPA) retainer at the air bag for the set dtc. If loose, remove the connector and reinstall correctly by first pushing the connector body in completely and then pushing in the CPA completely. If the CPA is broken, missing, or will not seat in connector correctly, replace the CPA retainer with part number: 54590003 (Orange CPA) that is located in the connector tray of the terminal repair kit.
Note: If the CPA retainer part number: 54590003 (Orange CPA) can't be located in terminal repair kit, contact Kent Moore Tools @ 1-800-GM-Tools to obtain a new package of 5.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.
GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.
