Q: Airbag warning light is on on the dashboard a lot

asked by on

A while back when my 2007 GMC Sierra had around 70,000 miles on it, the service airbag lights came on on the dashboard and I brought it in to have it serviced. They said it was something with the sensor and the light was back off. Then a month or two later I was in a high-speed accident and my airbags did NOT go off! I am very lucky the seatbelts must have been made by someone else! How can I ensure this does not happen with my next vehicle?
