Default SERVICE AIR BAG message won't turn off

The DIC shows "SERVICE AIR BAG" message. Also has a red warning light on, little red light that looks like a steering wheel with a deployed air bag. I just bought and replaced the impact sensor with a new Doorman sensor (part # 590-204) thinking that would solve the problem. Nothing changed, still have the warning light and the message. Truck is same as my signature. Anyone have any other ideas?

Mines been on for a little over two years just haven't messed with it. I was going to replace the sensor Bc that seems to be the common fix. Good luck wish I could help more. -John

Thanks John. I can tell you that replacing the sensor was a piece of cake. Hardest part was disconnecting both batteries. Whole job only took maybe 15-20 minutes. Just wish that was the solution.

Does the spring break or dislodge or fatigue or what happens to it and what is the fix? Is it a dealer only item or can I get one from an auto parts store?

Seems like a good time for me to go ahead and upgrade to a steering wheel with controls

Be prepared to replace the airbag module too. The impact was recorded and the airbag was deployed. This event will eather need to be cleared (some internet searchs will turn up a few places that will do it) or the module will need to be replaced. I dont recall if the vin needs to be programmed into the new module.

No impact ever occurred. Truck has never been in an accident.

Run by the dealer. Be stubborn and say you don't want any diagnostics, just the air bag code pulled. The few dealers I've been to (and worked at) would do that just to make a customer happy. A code number will help us out greatly. Can be an inflator module, driver or passenger, connector problems, or wiring problems.

Mine has been turning on when it's below 70* or if the truck sat all night for 2 years lol. I just hit the enter button on the steering wheel. Been trying to make my self stop by the dealership and get a code though.
