Hey guys. Had my GP in the shop for an airbag light. I was told the sensor in the seat is bad and is making the light kick on. Dealer is telling me P/N 19258125 is required to fix it. That is the Passenger Discriminating Sensor. Found here: https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/oem-parts/gm-passenger-discriminating-sensor-19258125
The Service Manager I talked to wasn't sure if I would be able to get a used one or simply find a junkyard seat and have it work. Can anyone here confirm or deny? I still have the option to call up the dealer and have him talk to the tech. My dealer is a great shop so I hate to bother them. Sadly, the GP was going to get put up for sale shortly but I think I'd like to find an easy/cheaper solution before putting it up for sale. I have a hard time dropping over $800 on parts and having to deal with removing the seat from the car and ripping everything apart.
Again, does anyone know if I can drop a used on it or does it *have* to be new since it's likely programmed to the BCM of the vehicle or can I get a used one and get it programmed? I know the dealer would do that for me.
