Hi Guys,

I just bought my 2007 G5 GT but it didn't come with an owners manual. I have a couple questions:

1. Is there a way to disable the light in the middle of the console that shows air bag status? I find it is brighter than the rest and a little unnecessary.

2. How can I show something other than Oil Life while the car is on. I noticed the KM only shows then you put the key in.

Thanks a lot

Only way to disable the light is to unplug it from the inside. Idk if your allowed to tho. Also hit the info button on ur steering wheel that will change it from oil life to w/e u want

Hey Pizza.... welcome! The online owner's manual Nair posted, says Airbag readiness light comes on for a few seconds while airbag system is being checked. It should disappear in a few seconds. If those few seconds bother you, cover it with a light tint (window tint) to dull it down. If light stays on,, have it checked as there could be a safety problem. Never disconnect a light like that.

Haha - you also don't have a passenger airbag ;)

I have two lights for the airbag, one to show if the sensor detects a passenger to engage the airbag and the other to show that no passenger is detected and disengage the airbag

man, how come my drivers information doesn't show tire pressure!! It shows everything else. Does everyone elses?
The tire pressure monitoring system was not implemented until the 2008 model, along with instantaneous fuel economy. But wait a minute... you have an 09. That's odd.

Both G5 GT and Cobalt show TP and Instant fuel economy for 2008.

mine doesn't (2010)
yup, 09 base model G5's do not show tire pressure, but do show instantaneous fuel economy.
It must be a US feature then. Canada is the only thing that the three of you have in common.

I wonder if there is a way to get Instant Fuel Economy, its there in the computer or else it couldn't give you the average...
I've wished the same thing. It seems the only way we can get that is to add an Interceptor gauge.

Hey thanks guys. So for the ones that have the lights enabled, they go out after a few seconds? Mine are always on but change depending if there is someone in the passenger seat or not. I'm gonna have a look through this manual now that I have one! Thanks again :)
