General Motors is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Chevrolet Impala vehicles manufactured April 25, 2008 through February 16, 2010. The front passenger seat frame may contact and damage the wires of the passenger presence sensor module.

If the wires are damaged, the passenger presence sensory system may fail to recognize that the passenger seat is occupied, disabling the air bag. Damage may also cause the air bag fuse to short resulting in a loss of all air bags and seat belt pretensions. Both conditions increase the risk of injury during a crash.

289,254 units are affected by the recall.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will double wrap the wires with anti-abrasion tape and replace damaged wires as necessary, free of charge.

I took my car for the recall involving chafed wires under the front passenger seat. The wires were fixed, but the chafed wires caused my passenger sensor to go bad, according to the dealership service department. GM refuses to cover the cost of the sensor, which they quoted as $622.00. This seems unfair because the recall situation is what caused the sensor to go out. I have called GM customer service and they refused to help. I still haven’t had time t repaired.
