you need to diagnose it with a scan tool first to know which airbag system or sensor is the faulty one sometimes the cables gets loose from the connector in that case you'll need to disconnect the battery then disconnect that connector and reconnect it but first check with a scan tool to narrow the scope of the issue

did you check the other electrics like window switches head console A/C control .. if they are hot as well most likely they're getting more voltage than they should meaning you BCM is gone bad i have explained in my post of another problem how to replace it in case you want to know how to

but i would give same advice as above check your car with a scan tool first it will help

so i checked it out with my scan tool but no codes came up... i searched it up for any recalls and one came up for 2005-2007 cts passenger side air bag sensor so im going to go to the dealership and have them check it out

the scanner you have might not been able to read the Airbag system the one in the agency should read the faults
there's no fault without a code. it's good that there's a recall, good luck to you

I have an 06 CTS and I leve near Phoenix, ... In the summertime it gets up to 118 degrees and when the interior is HOT my radio won't work and I also get the airbag message, probably the one in the dash on passenger side ? ANyway, I turn on the AC for a few minutes through the dash vents and that cools the radio right down and it will come back on in a couple minutes.
On HOT days, try to leave the windows cracked just a tiny bit to let out a little of that interior HEAT and see if that helps. Also on HOT days, I go to the grocery store to do a months worth of shopping and come out with a full cart and the trunk will NOT open, I then need to go in through the center pulldown on the rear seat to manually pull the release. Happens when the car is parked with the sun directly behind and beating down on the trunk lid. SO I try to park with the sun beating down on the hood instead when shopping LOL. There is NO good outcome here. It is dash or trunk, take yer pick !

I HATE this car....and everything that uses sidepost terminals !!
