Airbag Problem ?

I got the Diagnostic alert and I then went to the car just to check to see if the light was on and indeed it was.
“Diagnostic Alert: Service the air bag system in your 2016 Impala within 1 day. Txt STOP to cancel.”, was the message I received. It says service within 1 day so is it something very serious because dealers are closed on Sunday’s , someone hit my car while it was parked at a local diner a month ago but they drove away without leaving information and it’s an stratch and now the hood is unleveled . Is there any possible suggestions on what it could best ? Car has 104k miles . I’m honestly ready to get rid of it & get something else.

"Diagnostic alert" - is that via OnStar? Or some other source? Have you read the codes? I understand that reading airbag codes may require special tools, but wanted to see if there are any other codes.

I doubt the parking lot incident is related - if it didn't set off any airbags, I can't think of a reason it would cause this message.

If there was damage to one of the sensors on the side of the car, I would expect to see other warnings on the dash.

I'd start by trying to get the codes read. Autozone will do it for you.

If your socket set is all the same brand, you might be a city slicker.
