Default Airbag reset

Hello all,

I have been searching high and low for help on my wifes 2008 Astra. She was involved in an accident where she was hit on the right rear tire. It blew the passenger side air bag. Right rear axel was bent.

All mechanical and cosmectic damage has been repaired, including replacing rear axel. All airbag related parts have been replaced, including seat belt tensioner. All parts replaced with genuine GM parts from the dealership.


Problem is no one can reset the airbag light. It has been to five dealerships, and I have had two companies that reset airbag lights come out. Has anyone had this problem, can someone refer me to people that have the capabilities of interfacing with the astra computer to take car out of crash mode?

We are locatred in Houston Texas.
I appreciate any help, or direction.

Default Re: Airbag reset

I just rebuilt one with a minor hit, I need it to work to get it certified and titled. I just put the reset air bag computer in and it didn't change a thing???
I am trying to have a local shop look at it. Hope they find the issue or I can't get it licensed!
Any one else experienced with this system?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Repairs and Inspections Required After a Collision


Accident With or Without Air Bag Deployment – Component Inspections






Caution: Proper operation of the SIR sensing system requires that any repairs to the vehicle structure return the vehicle structure to the original production configuration. Not properly repairing the vehicle structure could cause non-deployment in a collision or deployment for conditions less severe than intended.




After a collision, inspect the following components as indicated. If any damage is detected, replace the component. If damage to the mounting points or mounting hardware is detected, repair the component or replace the hardware as needed.






Steering column—Perform the steering column accident damage checking procedures. Refer to Steering Column Accident Damage Inspection .







Instrument panel (I/P) knee bolsters and mounting points—Inspect the knee bolsters for bending, twisting, buckling, or any other type of damage.







I/P brackets, braces, etc.—Inspect for bending, twisting, buckling, or any other type of damage.







Seat belts—Perform the seat belt operational and functional checks. Refer to Seat Belt System Operational and Functional Checks .







Seats and seat mounting points—Inspect for bending, twisting, buckling, or any other type of damage.







Passenger seat bottom with passenger presence system (PPS)—Check for any DTCs or problems that may cause the PPS not to function properly.







The roof and headliner mounting points.


Frontal Inflator Module Deployment


After a collision involving air bag deployment, replace the following components.

Important: The front passenger seat is equipped with a PPS, which detects an occupant. If the requirements for disabling the I/P air bag are met then the PPS will communicate with the sensing and diagnostic module (SDM) to disable/turn OFF the I/P air bag, even in a accident. For more information on the PPS refer to SIR System Description and Operation .






Inflatable restraint I/P module, if deployed and after performing the necessary inspections listed above







Inflatable restraint steering wheel module







Inflatable restraint SDM







Inflatable restraint front end sensor, left/right







Inflatable restraint seat belt pretensioners


Perform additional inspections on the following components.






Steering wheel module coil and the coil wiring pigtail—Inspect for melting, scorching, or other damage due to excessive heat.







Mounting points or mounting hardware for the I/P, steering wheel module, SDM, and pretensioners—Inspect for any damage and repair or replace each component as needed.


Accident With Side Air Bag Deployment – Component Replacement and Inspections


After a collision involving side air bag deployment, replace the following components.






Inflatable restraint side impact sensors (SIS), left/right, on the side of the impact







Inflatable restraint roof rail module, left/right, on the side of the impact







Inflatable restraint SDM







Inflatable restraint seat belt pretensioner


Perform additional inspections on the following components.






Mounting points or mounting hardware for the SIS—Inspect for any damage and repair or replace each component as needed.







Mounting points or mounting hardware for the roof rail module (left/right) on the side of impact—Inspect for any damage and repair or replace each component as needed.







Mounting points or mounting hardware for the SDM and seat belt pretensioners—Inspect for any damage and repair or replace each component as needed.

Default Re: Airbag reset

check that all components were in fact changed..... including seat belt tentioners (they are on the clip, not the belt spool), and the SDM ... SDM cannot be reprogrammed, it must be replaced.
