B0083 CODE READ WITH MATCO INCEPTER
The Front Impact sensor is located under the front of the vehicle, driver's side, below the radiator support (see image). Carefully inspect the electrical connector and as far up the harness as you can (check carefully, due to it's location this is common!) looking for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, replace the Front End Sensor.

Well that a bummer I googled the fault and a few forums came up with the seat position sensor with the p.n. ...... Do you have the correct pn for that impact sensor...
Yeah, gotta watch out for those public forums. Many times, just non-professionals giving out answers just to see their own words on a webpage. Come see us first next time!
Ron. I got the front impact sensor and replaced it this morn (Left Front) and cleared all codes, now I am getting P0083-3a incorrect compont installed? any thoughts?
Hey Ron the PDF will not open the DROPBOX web site opens and ask me to sine in.
so i removed drivers seat and tested all points at this point i say the wireing is good and i have allready replaced the left front sensor so i assume that the SDM is bad. So i got an SMD delivered today and installed. I am trying to program the SDM with the web based AC Delco service programming system. Are you kknow any thing about this system?
do you have a full pin of the sdm
got it thanks, XXXXX XXXXX keep bugging you but are i able to look up the correct pn for the sdm?

Ron that TSB was right onthe money My local dealer had no clue that where was a year brake for the front sensors. NOW with all the screwing around with the SMD module and wireing i have a b0086-00 do you know where the location is and maybe if there is a year brake on that one as well
Great, glad the TSB helped. Sorry I didn't see it sooner! The P0086 is Passenger's Front "side" Impact Sensor (no TSB on this one, I checked first! hahaha!). It's located inside the door. In the image below, the driver's door is shown, but the passenger's side is similar.
