We just had the same code on an 08 Aveo we had just repaired. After running the diag on the scanner, we unplugged and replugged the driver seat airbag module and this cleared the code. Turned out something was spilled under the seat and messed with the connections in the plug.

You could clear the code with a scanner, but its possible the sensor for the driver side bag is faulty.

SOURCE: Air Bag light stays on after engine starts.

You need access to VagCom (the diagnostic software from VW and Audi). You can download it free at, and buy the interface cable for your laptop on eBay for about $20. Or you can pay an hour's labor at a VW/Audi dealer to have them turn off the light.

What probably happened is similar to what happened in my 99 Audi A4. I have side airbags in the seats, and if the front seats are moved all the way back for any reason, it puts tension on the yellow airbag connector under the seat. That pulls it out just enough to open the contact and trip an airbag failure light. What I did was zip-tie the connector tightly (be very careful of the wires, as they're small and you don't want to pinch them), then use VagCom to turn off the light. Using the software is the only way to turn the light off - no ignition cycling or drive cycles, or number of miles driven, nor a battery disconnect, can reset the light.

Use VagCom to find out which airbag is giving you trouble, zip-tie its connector, and have the light turned off. Then you're set.

SOURCE: chevy silverado 2006 lights "service air bag"

First of all you need to get this problem fixed ASAP. While the airbag light is illuminated, your SDM (Sensing and Diagnostic Module aka: the brain of your airbag system) shuts of power to the airbags. In which, if you are in an accident your airbags will not deploy while this light is illuminated. You need to take your vehicle to a GM dealership. A Tech 2 scantool is needed to retrieve the code from the SDM. Hopefully it won't be a costly repair, but is something that defineatly needs to be corrected soon. Good luck and hope all works well.

I have a 2010 chevy aveo. The signal relay for the turn signal clicks constantly when not using the flashers or the blinkers. I replaced the relay and it still clicks. not sure what is causing this.

It may be a grounding problem in the wiring.. probably the turn signal switch that is located inside the steering column..These switches have plastic parts that can crack and close a circuit. You need a dealer repair as there are various sensors and sensitive wiring inside the column that controls deployment of the air bag.

I have a 2009 Chevy Aveo. When I start the car

Is it a 2009 or a 2005 do not mess with the air bag system unless you really know what you are doing.
I have found that this usually the sdm (the main module for the air bag system). Really needs to go to the dealer.

I can't open the gas door on my chevy aveo.

To open the fuel filler door, pull up on the release lever with a gas pump symbol on it. It is located on the floor on the left side of the driver's seat.

Please leave feedback if this helped. Thanks!
