Airbag code on 2004 Silverado

5 posts in this topic

This past weekend my truck started displaying "SERVICE AIR BAG" in the DIC and the red airbag light came on. This happened to me once last winter when it was -25 up north, but after a few minutes the code cleared and hasn't come back until last weekend. I had a friend's dad come over tonight with a scan tool and it has the code B0084 - Driver seat position sensor circuit. He cleared the code, but it reappears on each subsequent restart (there were no other stored codes, only this one). We checked the connections etc. and everything "looks" ok, so maybe the sensor itself went bad. Has anyone had this issue, and if so do you know how it was resolved?

There is a Technical service bulletin about this.

The TSB information is a summary. Unfortunately I do not have access to the full version. To get full information about a particular TSB, someone else here may be able to help you, or you can contact your local dealer.

TSB #3096 -- INTERMITTENT AIR BAG TELLTALE SETS A FALSE DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE OF B0083 AND OR B0084. *SC (NHTSA ID #10010245, JANUARY 01 2004)

Update - all troubleshooting pointed to the sensor itself under the seat, so I picked one up for about $40 and will be replacing it next weekend.

Found a broken wire right at the harness. Picked up a new pin, crimped the wire in and it's good to go. No more code. The design it poor as it ended up breaking because of moving the seat forward all the time to get my kids in the back.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
