It came on unknowingly when my son inlay was driving the vehicle,
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I did notice that the sensor on the rad support has some pieces missing out of it. When I first got the vehicle one of the wires was broken that go to the Air bag impact sensor. I repaired it using an electrical connector (crimp type) and the light went out and stayed out for some time, until recently. I thought maybe that water had rusted the connection so I redid the connection but it didn't fix the problem.
Pontiac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Mater Technician replied 3 years ago
Thank you for the response. If that connection has allowed moisture to get into the harness then that will cause this to occur. If the wiring appears to be fine then the next most common cause of this is a failing clock spring in the steering column. You would need to scan the air bag module to know for sure what is going on. Did you have a scan tool with this capability?

I have an oBDII, and a snap on diagnostic tool, but it only goes to 2000,
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
the OBDII does not show any codes.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I do have access to a shop that can give me the codes, that will have to wait till tomorrow morning though,
Pontiac Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Mater Technician replied 3 years ago
If you can do that it would help. Your scan tool will not have the capability of doing this. Bring me the codes and we can continue from there.
