I have a 2006 Silverado and I had a front end impact approx. 3 years ago. I got everything fixed in this wreck. About 4 months ago, an error appeared on my dash that said "Service Air Bag". I ignored it which led to it starting to drain my battery. I would park the truck and come out two hours latter to a dead battery. I got it fixed and my battery quit draining itself. About two weeks ago, the same problem started again with the "Service Air Bag" error". It drained my battery again. It ended up being the other front side sensor. So I now have replaced two Air Bag sensors which have costed me about $1000. I think it is rediculous that if your airbag sensor goes bad that it drains your battery. This is a poor engineering design. Whats next...my tire goes flat and the radio quits working!

A few days ago my '06 GMC Sierra 1500 began showing the "Service Air Bag" in place of the digital odometer. I thought maybe it was because I'd changed the hitch receiver, but found nothing back there. While reading the replies here, I suddenly recall that a couple of weeks ago I accidentally pulled forward over a truck transmission. But it didn't hurt my airdam, so I backed off. Still no hurt to the airdam, so I drove around the transmission.
Seems I'll need to check the harness and sensors tomorrow. But this hasn't run my battery dead.
The real issue is why they put this expensive stuff in such a vulnerable location? I WILL be re-locating my sensors, probably inside the frame rails.
