Hi I got a 2005 Escalade EXT and the airbag light just popped on. So now the light stays on and it says service airbag. Is there anyway to get this light off? Can I run a diagnostic on the truck using the truck like I can my 98 Cadillac SLS? Please if anyone knows I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks:D

I had the same problem. The front impact sensor was bad causing the light to come on. I just had the dealer replace it. About $100.

It can only get scanned with a GM TECH2 scanner..... AKA you gotta bring it to the dealer to get scanned! Mine also came on for the same reason. I found a new impact sensor on eBay for $35 and fixed the problem. The dealer scanned the car for free (dont know if all dealers will do this, just pretend to be interested in getting the car fixed there but don't have the time to drop it off, just to scan it for safety reasons)

i can get you a good deal on the sensor, if you end up needing one
a friend of mine just got one on his tahoe (the trucks share the same airbag system)
