      THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG IS TURNED ON BY THE SEAT SENSOR IN THE PASSENGER SIDE SEAT. IF AND WHEN A PERSON SITS IN THE PASSENGER SIDE SEAT, IT DEPRESSES THE SWITCH IN THE SEAT CUSHION TELLING THE VEHICLE THERE IS SOMEONE THERE RESULTING ON THE AIR BAG TURNING, IF IN FACT U HAVE SOMEONE SIT IN THE PASSENGER SIDE, AND IT DOES NOT TURN OFF THE LIGHT ON THE MIRROR, YOU HAVE A BAD SEAT OCCUPANT SENSOR. UNTIL U GET THAT IXED, ANYONE RIDING ON THAT SIDE, IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT, THE AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY.

      Seat belt has to be buckled. Air bag is enabled by the passenger present system. It has a soft pad on passenger cushion that is designed to enable or disable depending in passengers weight and if buckle is latched. If it still does not change have your dealership rezero passenger prescense system and check for fault codes. Have seen ppm go bad.

      not to bust your bubble. but the buckle does not have to be latched to enable the passenger side airbag. thats why there is a separate presence module located in the seat. if what u say was true, the air bag wouldnt deploy, there is alot of people that do not use seatbelts and thats why the car is designed that way, to ensure riders safety even though they dont use belts. please check facts and understand what u are talking about before you give advice.

      First of all I am not on here to bash. Second I am a master technician and gm world class technician. Gm passenger prescense system has certain criteria that has to be met in order for SDM to enable airbag deployment. PPS has a module Senors pad with fluid and a BTS. Belt tension sensor. If the belt is not clasped in the buckle it will not be enabled. If you want you can talk to the engineer I work with from GM.

    Headlights and radio went out. Everything else electrical works great.
    So here's the deal. I bought a pretty heavily modified 1990 Burban a couple days ago. While driving it home on the highway, all the sudden all the power in the cab went out along with the headlights. My breaks and blinkers still works great. No idea what the deal ...

    What is the name of the black strip under the door on both sides of the car.
    I need the black strip that is located the length of the car under the doors. I call it the rocker panel cover. Not able to find, thinking it is labeled something else. I will also need the clips that hold it to the vehicle.

      I think you are talking about the Sill plate weatherstrip. Does it sit on the inside of the vehicle along floor panel when you open sliding doors.
    • JONES AUTO REPAIR
      6/19/2014 JONES AUTO REPAIR
      with the doors close, from outside the car. if its located under the doors and runs the length of the car like stated in your description, it would in fact be the rocker panel molding.

      Can you get on the cable with a pair of vice grips?

      If you take the front grill out, can you get at the latch mechanism for the hood?

    Driver side vents sometime blow hot air without heater being on
    303,000 miles The drivers side vents will start to blow HOT air for no reason. Even when the air is on The passenger sides air will work but not the drivers. You shut the truck off and all will work OK for awhile.

      There has been a lot of issues with those speakers in the doors. I replaced several. Some amps are built in the radio. I would have to look your vehicle up through my gm site.

    Some time the dash indicator lights will come on (seatbelt air bag battery and will have a buzzing noise.
    This only happens once and awhile. the lights that come on in the dash are the same ones that come on when you first turn the key on. When this happens, the airbag light stays on and the turn signals won't work when there is the buzzing sound. The buzzing will stop ...

    Brake lights not working on a 2000 chevy corvette
    it has a new brake light switch fuse is fine and bulbs are good the little brake light in the middle works

      Brake light switch is out. Try checking the fuse, which i am sure you have, or take a voltmeter, set on 12 volts DC and have some one press down the brakes while you remove the taillight, and check for voltage, if you do, then you probably have a rare problem of all your bulbs blown at once. I have seen this before.

      It is the 4way flasher switch in the dash.
