My air bag sensor light came on and will not go off. The dealer that I deal with wants me to put in a new sensor in, and it will cost me around $500. They said that if I was to get into an accident, the air bags and the seatbelts might not deploy. Should this be a recall item?

Airbag light on airbags disabled safety concern vehicle is not as potentially as safe as it was designed to be. The SDM (airbag module) has water intrusion and caused corrosion inside the SDM and caused the circuit board to burn out no fuses were blown which is a concern as well because the board had burn components from the water intrusion. GM had a previous recall on this problem it appears this vehicle had the recall as it had the jute from the carpet removed from this area above the SDM this recall was purposively a Canada recall 09270C - material over sensing and diagnostic module I talked to GM about this they will do nothing for this even though they know of a problem this is a real safety concern not only for the airbag but for the module burning up the circuit board as well potential fire in the vehicle I would like it fixed by the manufacture
