Just heard from a friend that in one of his car magazines there is another recall on the CTS-V. Did anyone else hear about this?
This morning I looked on the GM owners site and the recall tab said not in service at this time. DOC170

http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/images/spacer.gif ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES, AN INTERACTION BETWEEN THE SENSING AND DIAGNOSTIC MODULE AND VEHICLE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM MAY CAUSE THE DRIVER'S FRONTAL AIR BAG AND ROOF RAIL AIR BAG TO DEPLOY WHEN THE IGNITION KEY IS TURNED TO THE "ON" POSITION. Consequence:
http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/images/spacer.gif INADVERTENT DEPLOYMENT OF DRIVER'S FRONTAL AIR BAG AND ROOF RAIL AIR BAG WILL OCCUR. A PERSON POSITIONED FOR DRIVING MAY RECEIVE MINOR INJURIES, SUCH AS ABRASIONS, FROM CONTACT WITH THE AIR BAG. Remedy:

This seems to be the newest recall but it is not CTS-V.

With 87,000 units affected, are we sure that this doesn't include some of the '04 CTS-Vs? Because around August last year I had to have the same sensor and module replaced because the air-bag warning light constantly flashed on in my V and the dealers replaced it because they thought it might go off. Nothing was wrong with the rest of the system, just the sensors.

And, if I remember correctly, there was someone else on the forum that had a similar problem with their V and the airbags.

Since the CTS-V is first a CTS, this might very well include the Vseries in the recall. Though the V has a different steering wheel, it probably uses the same airbag sensing and diagnostic modules as the other CTS's

So...I guess I will ask my wife to start the car in the mornings......

That would have been me! An acquaintance of mine had her airbags deploy at startup on her 2003 CTS. Cadillac told her not to move it and they settled on her getting a new 2005 for $2,000.00. They shipped her 2003 back to Michigan. Apparently hers was not an isolated incident.

If this recall wasn't for the CTS-V back in Feb when this thread was originally started, it sure is now. I got my recall notice in the mail today :( Dammit - I just got back from the dealership from getting my rear end replaced too! I wish they would have told me about this one and fixed it.

Ahhh, perfect timing. I got my notice yesterday...the same day I picked up my V after getting the diff replaced. But my dealer was on the ball and brought it up to me before I could even ask to have the recall done, per info on this forum.

They got the replacement module Monday morning and I picked it up Monday night. It's all good.

How sensitive is the SDM? I heard if you bang it the wrong way, it can't be downloaded. Airbagcrash.com only can retrieve the last 5 seconds(for $200+). I hear the CTS-V SDM records the last 20 seconds before deployment.
Are there side airbags???
