No Duramax, im sorry, maybe.u.misunderstood me. When i was checking my fuses i noticed there wasnt a fuse in slot#11. Thats the airbag slot fuse. It has two connectors in.the slot. I have no idea as to why in the 6 months i've had this m, that my airbag light has never been on. But after i started my car then the lights came on. My mech doesnt know why either. All he says is that there r so many modules in the car, and that over time they sometimes jave gathered so much info, that they think they r their own computers and try to regulate things. He said some times all it takes is to turn the car off and then start it

Yea im sorry max. After all this talk, i think things got jumbled up. It all started with my car showing a red headlamp indicator light, on right side, after i started my car. So i turned ob my head lights, got out and looked, both were on. Turned on high beams, both were on. Turned on right blinker, blinked fast for a couple seconds, then blinked normally. So, as on any other car, would indicated a blinkrr light out. Both were ok. So then i thought maybe a fuse. My little card in the fuse box doesnt list a turn signal fuse. But i decided to chrck all my fuses cuzv i've had other lights randomly come on. With the key in my pocket, i started checking all the fuses, one at a time. When i got to fuses slot #11 it was empty. Connector on both sides. Not to be cockey, but im 37 and i've been into cars forever, and that was the first thing i looked for. My little card says thats for airbag, side airbqg. Had this car for 5 months, never a light. So i check all the fuses, everything is good. Then i start my car, airbag and seatbelt lights r on. Wtf?? So then i put one of my spare fuses, 5 amp, into the slot. Start my car, lights r still on wtf?? Doesnt make sense. Sorry for the long ass reply, just tryin 2 b very descriptive, lol. Oh and yea,lol, did u c my ravens tonight?!!! Woot!!!!!!! Hahahaha
