Did you work at a Saturn dealership?

I guess this just might depend on what dealership you go to. The new dealership has been awesome about everything. Or the other reason they didn't waive the fee was because they said the check engine light was being caused by the air bag problem and air bag is not under warranty..

All is good now thought, Thanks to Members on this board!

After making my reply; I thought I remembered a post concerning this issue. I just find it hard to believe that a wireless signal could cause this malfunction

Re: $95 code reading fee from GM Dealership

When my 07 Outlook had the similar codes and the stretched timing chain problems they Chevy dealer waived the $115 diagnostic fee because the fix was under the 5 year 100,000 warranty. They also stated the airbag light was due to my cell phone on the passenger seat (as well as my laptop and other cell phone was nearby) and to come back if the airbag light goes off again. The parts were already at the dealership so no waiting there (it took a week to fix).

Dont know about your saturn but mine is a 2007 with 85k on the ticker and I am still covered under the 5yr/100k powertrain warr granted my chain was replaced at 71k miles.

I did have an airbag light come on when the battery died but it just went away overnight.. interesting.......

Now its just a little leak under the dash dripping from the fuse block. Joy!!

When will there be more recalls?

Re: $95 code reading fee from GM Dealership

That makes sense. I'm pretty sure the OBD port can pull all engine related data but not the airbag codes.... Who knows.. I'm going to try and find info on the airbag and see if I can find parts else where.. I looked under the seat but I'm scared to go poking around and set off the air bag.. They don't look or smell to good...
