My Light came on took it to dealer ,said it cost 1000.00 to repair , Insurance would'nt cover it.
was it the same issue??? The bulletin covers Passenger side air bag issues, triggers, and sensors/grounds. If it was a totally unrelated issue on the driver's side, then that may be why(that is, if your vehicle doesnt have a warranty anymore)

Well i came to find somethin out as i was tryna install one of mny switches. the airbag sensor has two fuses i believe inside the car, now my airbag sensor would come on and off at time and i didnt know why i just stop paying attention to it. what I did notice is when i has mistakenly removed both of the fuses and placed them back in the light never came on again. (Note car was off) I dont know if thats a glitch or just somehow it just worked itself out but when I start the car the engine does its checks airbag light comes on then turns off again and stays off no more comin on and off like it used to. well just wantd to share that.
both the fuses are inside i believe the fuses are 13 and 24, 13 bein the airbag and 24 bein the module sensor from what it says in the cobalt manual.

What sensor did they change, I am having the same issue. We have changed the sensor in the passenger seat, the seatbelt pretensioner and Friday we are going to change the side impact sensor in the door. The airbag light on the center console will not show the passenger side airbag on when someone sits in the seat.

Well, the guy @ the dealership just told me that it was the Air Bag Module for the Pass. side... didnt really tell me what or anything...
ok I just went outside & got the paper they gave me after the service was done... it says...the FP # was 15780135 & the Description was Module KI 14.865 but that's all it says, so idk... lol...hope u get urs fixed!!!

Finally Fixed

Passenger side sensor not the problem. Pass side seatbelt pre tensioner was it all along. After 7 weeks of messing around, it works like it is supposed to.
Thanks for your input.

I had this same issue. I got to looking around one day and noticed the wiring harness under the passenger front seat had been split. I fixed that and my airbag light problem was fixed. The dealership told me that I would have to pay $1000 for a new harness. But I fixed it and it cost me nothing!
