GM has determined that when the air bag light on, the problem can be the air bag wiring harness in the steering air bag light oncolumn may rub against a sharp edge and cause a short to ground. The harness is in the steering wheel assembly and connects the air bag to the steering wheel. Look for a sharp edge on the steering wheel stamped steel horn plate and check the harness in that areas. If you find any indication of chafing, replace the restraint module coil. Then install an adhesive backed flocking material to the sharp edge.
