Air bag light is on I see others have a electrical contact problem with module. Mercedes now has a recall for the same problem. Gas line had to be replaced. The Chevy Impala a w-car are identical fuel lines have been recalled I expected all GM w-cars would have followed. The check engine light shows up as a fuel evaporative system on tech. Reader. Note: All the conditions shown above are on all the time after starting.

The SRS (air bag) indicator is on solid & will not reset. I researched the NHTSA Office Of Defects Investigation recall database and and found there was a recall on the 2000 Buick Regal for the interior systems: Passive restraint: Air gag: Side door: Driver. The NHTSA campaign id # is 00V371000. I was never contacted via mail on this recall. I was mailed information on NHTSA campaign id # 01V109000. What do I need to do besides get my vehicle to a dealer to have this SRS unit checked?
