Default 2008 Escalade Service Airbag Light B0083

Hello,
I have a service airbag light on and a code that reads B0083. I have already changed both of the front impact sensors to no avail.

The light came on when I hit a pothole, I know this because when the service airbag light came on, the HVAC blower motor fell out of place simultaneously (not an OEM blower motor, replaced 6 months prior).

I am beginning to suspect the seat position sensor. I have easy exit enabled on the SUV, but occasionally it malfunctions to where I need to manually move the seat forward for the easy exit to work properly again. However, it is working properly now which tells me that the seat position sensor is currently working. I am also assuming that the seat position sensor is responsible for the airbag system as well as the memory seats.

Any help is greatly appreciated as I want to avoid unnecessary part swapping.

First question, why did you replace the front impact sensors?

Second, how in the world does a blower motor fall out hitting a pothole?

Third, do you know what B0083 is, SPECIFICALLY, for your vehicle? It has nothing to do with the seat position sensor....

To diagnose this, you need the trouble tree, schematics, and an expensive scan tool...

Fisrt and third, B0083 points to the front impact sensors. However, online research had told me that the seat position sensor could also throw that same code.

Second, the blower motor snaps into place with a quarter turn, the pothole was enough to get it over the hump that snaps it into place.

There has to be something broken for that to fall out....

When it comes to air bag systems, most sites don't like to offer info......

You can change all the parts you want, until you get it right, but I would bring it to a dealership and get it fixed correctly....

Also check 08-09-41-008A.......correct sensor and/or calibration?
