I FIXED The $1,000 Airbag Problem EVERY 5th Gen Camaro Should Be RECALLED For

I've been working on my 2011 Chevy Camaro RS for a few weeks now and it's all fixed except for one thing. The airbag light is permanently lit on the dash for an issue all 5th generation Camaros eventually have. The weight sensing mat in the seat is broken causing the passenger presence module to set a code. This thread covers the factory TSBs: www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=313193 and multiple people have filed lawsuits about this issue as well: www.carcomplaints.com/news/2016/chevy-camaro-lawsuit-service-airbag-lights.shtml
If you go to the dealer to fix this they'll typically quote upwards of $1,000 and just the parts can run $600+.

I'm a retired photographer. If the camera you're using has threads on the front of the lens to attach filters you can buy a cheap, battery powered ringlight to give you better lighting in cramped conditions.

No how about you make a video on how to bypass this sensor altogether. I don't want to hear comments about kids being in my car when I don't have any. And if they are that small they gotta be in the back anyway. I just want it on all the time and there has to be a better fix than replacing that sensor matt.

Thank you so much. I’ve had this problem since I bought my 2011 Camaro, I had a passenger in the seat when I bought my car, as long as I have the passenger seatbelt buckled no light comes on, doesn’t matter if someone is in the seat or not. Could not find anything related to this problem. Now I know what to replace.

Having exact same issue w my same year Camaro. I had no idea there were lawsuits, but I've been checking for recalls. I need it fixed because my 13yr old boy sits in the passenger seat. Looks semi ez for a gal tht has no problems but I'm disabled and obviously can't afford for Chevy to do it. How about your tire pressure sensors? Mine are shot but we've been driving cars for decades without those anyway.

Mazda had that seat occupancy sensor mat failure too somewhere around the year 2000. Needless to say that all got fixed under warranty, even on a lot of cars which already were past their factory warranty period. (and I did tons of those jobs, working on upholstery and interiors takes a special kind of magic which i have a lot of . (aka the talent of keeping everything VERY clean, even in very dirty workshops)

That light goes on and off on my 2003 Silverado 2500 all the time, often when I hit bumps in the road. My CEL comes on and off all the time too. I guess with 309,xxx miles ypu can expect electrical problems.

GM is just a mixed bag of everything. They have some good engineers but they drop the ball many many times on several aspects of their automotive designs. That PPM (passenger presense mat) is just garbage. I would not buy a GM vehicle.

Why do you want the expense of replacing the dash and air bag if no one is in the seat? I suppose it is a styling trade off.

The more I see of new cars the more I prefer old tech. 72 Dodge Darts, amongst other Mopars had a weight sensor in the passenger seat for the seatbelt warning buzzer. They never seem to fail! If Chesler could make it reliable almost 50 years ago, why is GM not able to do it now?
David Pick
David Pick 5 ամիս առաջ
Because GM is about profit now. Short term reliability vs long term reliability corporate feels is their best interest. The decision to make them cheaper is why GM vehicles just aren't as durable as they were in the past.

Unfortunately, he's made it clear this will be a resto-mod and not a restore when done. Classic 67 body and frame with a majority upgraded with 21st century technology. Some will love it. Purist will hate it. Ultimately, I think resto-mod is the way to go if he's going to keep it and plans to daily drive it.

Not just the Camaros have this problem. The 3 gen W bodies have as well. One W body Impala was involved in a crash that a front seat passenger was in but the passenger airbag never deployed and because the airbag never deployed the passenger of the Impala died 10 months later. The driver has since then sued General Motors.

@Larry Be I guess but if the car got hit bad enough to deploy the airbags, you've got worse problems than just the dash.

Yeah that looks like a typical GM bonehead design, like the ECU's on the ecotecs being bolted to the hot intake manifold. They should just tie it to the seatbelt sensor, a very sturdy sensor. If you ain't wearing a seatbelt, you don't need an airbag anyways.

In my 2005 ext cab Silverado. The wiring harness on passenger seat is too short. The first time I put the seat all the way forward, the black wire pulled out of the male end, leaving the funky looking silver end ripped out. Reseated the black wire, and it kept happening. So I just made a extension wire and haven't had any issues in 13 years.

Who hates the Goldwing? Are they stupid? My biggest regret of buying a Goldwing is I waited until I was 50 to buy my first one. It's an amazing motorcycle. I especially like messing with punks on Harleys and kids on crotch rockets. I've got decades and 100's of thousands of miles of experience....lol. My 19 year old son bought one and after an 800 mile Saturday called me up and told me that torturing him with a Goldwing had been cheating. LOL Yup, they'll do twisties all day long...even pulling my camper.

Wow all I can say is another fine job very informative on the video that is for sure, more of that damn technology you know I hate it because I'm an old man not really that old but I hate the technology some of it it seems so bothersome I guess it could save your life. But I kind of doubt it. I just believe that they can build a car with less crap in it that will function and tell you what you need to know about the actual car and not just about stupid stuff like who's sitting in your seat you know who sitting in your seat you're probably looking at them when you're driving down the road talking to or how much they weigh, see it's crap like this that gives everybody a bad day when their light goes on in their dashboard and they want to just smash the dashboard. Now stuff like you put in those gauges in your center console that was so freaking cool now that's technology that you need not that you want it's what you need cuz it tells you about the car anyway my friend another great video as usual keep them coming stay safe stay well and as always God bless.
