Recently I have had to repair and replace my whole ignition lock housing for my 2006 Chevy Cobalt LS 5Spd Manual. I take very good care of my car and to my knowledge I put everything back the way it was on my steering column when I fixed the ignition (however, we all make mistakes). The airbag sensor is illuminated now and will not go away. It blinks a single time when the vehicle is turned on and will stay constant throughout use until the vehicle is turned off. I have checked all connections to the airbag and around the clockspring and everything appears to be in working order with no stress to the cables or any burn marks. I have checked all of the fuses under my hood at I only had to replace one, which as it turns out, fixed the problem I was having with my OBDII not responding. I have also taken my OBDII code reader and a dealerships SRS/OBDII code reader (the ones that are like $400+ and only for certified mechanics) and both say that there are no error codes and all checks pass. I also no for a fact that when sitting in the passenger seat, my sensor on the center console will still light up informing me that the airbag is now activated for the passenger, so it appears as though the only thing not working is the driver side airbag. After all of the extensive research I've done and troubleshooting, I'm very close to giving in and just paying the dealership their $99 to "troubleshoot" the issue the same ways that I did and maybe more. If you would please assist me with this issue it would be greatly appreciated. It's kind of a scary thought just thinking about someone hitting me and my face meeting the steering wheel. Please and thank you for any and all time taken to review this, have a great day.
have the same problem?
