Service airbag light and message.

As of yesterday i had the message(service air bag) and the dummy light come on.So,what i am wondering where i start first.I have an aftermarket warranty but might not cover air bag stuff.So i am trying to figure it out myself so i dont end up with a big dealer ship bill..Thanks for any info.

I had that error message but had to take it to the dealer to find out where the problem was. They told me it was the front right sensor.

Air Bag work needs to be done by someone who has experience with them. The testing requires special tools.

Just recently, I heard what sounded like a little nut fall off inside my steering wheel. Next time I started my truck the service air bag light came on. I'm afraid to get it fixed because I don't know what they will charge. If anyone has any ideas I would appreciate it.

Had this on my 2005 Silverado. Bought aftermarket Dorman airbag sensor from amazon for little over 50 dollars. Disconnect battery waited 20 minutes then swapped front right sensor under bumper. 20 minute job and no more airbag light
