the drivers side seat belt started going slack about a year ago but i could take up the tension by hand after i buckled the belt. this was just an annoyance until a month ago when the srs light appeared on the dash. the mil was intermittent at first , leading me to believe that the malfunction was likely to resolve itself. unfortunately the mil is now always on. i took the vehicle to a qualified technician whom i trust and he put the vehicle on the scanner. he informed me that i did indeed have a "hard" code. his computer tells me that my left front pretensioner deployment loop is open. (code # dtc b 0065). i haven't yet taken the vehicle to the dealer to see how this resolves. *tt

power sliding doors open / close by themselves at times (usually right door, but sometimes left). sometimes, when the door has been closed it will reopen & have to be closed manually. at times the door will stay closed, but the 'dinging' noise will continue for the entire time i am driving. there have been occasions when it continued dinging well after the ignition was turned off. we have had it in the shop and 'fixed' a few times. the fix sometimes lasted a week or two. sometimes, it only lasted a couple of days. we were never able to pinpoint or predict when the malfunction would occur. finally, we have removed the fuse permanently and only operate the doors manually to prevent a serious injury from occurring to the children. in the rear (3rd) seat, the right seat belt has also retracted & will not release. this happened one day when i was trying to remove a child from the vehicle. he was in a booster seat and strapped in by the seat belt. when i unlatched the belt, it retracted slightly, but would not pull back out. now it is too tight to place a car seat, booster, or have someone sit there. i have not made the trip to the service department for this situation. no one is allowed to sit it that seat because the safety restraint is not-usable. *tr

the abs light is on in my van, i have been told that the airbag could deploy at any time or that in the event of a crash that it won't deploy at all. i purchased this vehicle used but this problem started in 2009. the light will go off occasionally, but only for a few miles. this should be fixed by chevrolet, however the dealer has stated that it is and was not covered under warrenty.
