The usual, bad pressure sensor mat on passenger seat. The recall on this issue reads that Cadillac will fix this even though my VIN is outside of the recall population. Turns out they were joking. According to its 10V-644 Defect Report, GM reported that some vehicles outside the recall population have "...significantly lower incident rates and will be provided a special coverage." This special coverage includes a free repair should the same issue occur to non-recalled 2005-2007 Cadillac CTS vehicles up to 10 years or 120,000 miles.

Service air bag system message pops up at starting of the vehicle.
Passenger side airbag light stays off when passenger is seated. Was working OK until our trip back from Michigan. The passenger side seat was moved forward somewhat for the trip. When positioning the seat back away from the dash the airbag light went from off to on intermitting. When moving the seat forward toward the dash the off light stays on. Not repaired yet, Cadillac dealer wants $840.00 to replace the sensor.

went to carid.com and found a replacement piece for around $120.00 this fits over where the piece fell off and has a louver look over the backup lights. if you don't have the broken piece you may have to make some adjustments. it is held on with double sided m3 tape and comes included and it also mounts behind the license plate and those screws help hold it on also. it saved me from having to pay between $400 and $800 on a later model part fix. was easy to install. it arrives black and is paintable and i think they had a option to order it painted....can't remember. i have a grey cts and i left mine black and it looks fine.

My daughter shifted in the passenger seat and the check airbag light came on and the console sait to check the airbag. I haven't had it fixed yet because I am assuming it is expensive. Cadillac had a recall on this problem for this year car but when I called, they said my vehicle wasn't included in the recall. I thought that was very interesting.

I called the dealer about it . They want 98.00 just to check it out. Then if they find a problem with some parts they will let me know & order parts & go from there. Of coarse it will cost extra. I asked if it was something I could fix my self & he immediately said it was a factory part & I wouldn't be able to order that my self or fix it. It hD to be brought to the dealer to be fixed!
After a front driver side collision and repair, Service Air Bag message came on. Dealer wants to charge over $600 to fix; states it's a passenger seat sensor failure. This is not necessary for deployment of passenger air bag, right? Could this be result of collision? I am calling collision repair shop. Not sure if I should fix it. Advice?
The Passenger seat air bag module has failed and caused the light to come on in the dash requiring service call
