Recently got my '04,and the airbag light is on in the dash.I was told I need an '04 module/that the one in it is an '02,and it is year specific as well as it will have to be programmed by the dealer....OK,I see them on ebay for 25-150$....so,according to what I'm told,the module is located under the passenger seat.So is it just a matter of (me) replacing the module (with the correct module) then hop on over to the dealer to get it programmed?

Pretty much, unless there's another issue with it...

Before you replace your air bag module, check the wiring under the drivers seat, start the car and move the wiring under the seat,

Before I remove the module/start unplugging connectors,do I need to disconnect the battery or anything to prevent bag deployment while I'm doing this?

Yes. Disconnect the negative battery cable and wait 30 minutes just to be safe before doing anything.

To begin with,the module that is in the car is for an '02.I realize I need one for an '04.But I'm seeing them listed (for example/could be others) as AK5 style
module with 12242060 service number,AW6 style module with 12242070 service number on ebay.
Clearly I'll need one or the other,or even a different one than these two I found.Any way I can tell which one I'll need,maybe going by VIN or something?

ok,got a question here..if I get an airbag module for the wreckers,should I worry about whether or not if it's going to work or not?..yes,my light is still on..the water on the floor was not the problem..and does the seat have to come out to get at the module?

You need to have the proper one for your car. Either PM your VIN, or look on your SPID label in the trunk to see which option code your car has. And stay with the proper year as well.

There is no programming procedure for these. So as long as you disable the air bag system, have the correct SDM, it should be plug and play.

Go get one, just make sure the tags on the SDM on the donor car match the tags on the SDM in your car, if you aren't able to pick the exact same year and options. Did you PM him your VIN to see what other years may have the same SDM?

Also, if you didn't know already...DON'T take the SDM from a car that has had the airbags deployed or has flood damage.

Is the module programmed to the BCM?

I always thought it was, but just looked at the service manual and didnt see any programming related to it. Smile

There is a learn function during BCM programming, but I don't know if it takes something along the lines of the serv code or if it grabs a serial number. I've never had to change mine so I've never monkeyed around with it.

During initial BCM setup, you can use just a Tech 2...but once the BCM is set up if you need to change whatever is changed with the SDM in the BCM, you need to use the PC hooked up to it as well (see http://tis2web.xw.gm.com/tis2web then enter your VIN, there is an option for SDM ID learn, but you can't actually do anything with the website with your PC).

If you look up that bulletin number - 1472911 in your service manual (if you have bulletins) you can read all about it. Wink

RPO Code AK5 = w/o side airbags
RPO CODE AW6 = w/ side airbags

The 7th digit of the VIN also identifies if the car is equipped with side airbags or not...but the service manual doesn't say which is what.

I put something under my seat one time, and it caused the same light to go off. But, I simply touched the wire underneath the seat and it went off and stayed off. I had my passengers airbag module replaced by the dealer before this, but idk if I needed it. Anyway, go around checking your connections under there 1st. If you can find a way to avoid the dealer, try to do so. The job cost me around $800.
