The "Inflatable Restraint" is a common occurrence especially on the Caprice. Any time the light illuminates, a code is stored within the Central Control Module (CCM). Check the code and if the code stored indicates a sensor problem, the common occurrences are a faulty sensor ground or faulty sensors. These sensors are located on each front frame rail just in front of and under the battery, and equal distanced on the right side. These sensors can be removed, the frame and sensor sanded for cleanliness, and reinstalled using a small amount of dielectric grease. If the light persists, then a sensor replacement is most likely necessary. Be sure to disconnect the battery and ensure that the ignition is in the off position prior to working on the Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system. Note: Operation of the SIR system will be questionable if the "INFL REST" light is illuminated. Remember, disconnect the battery before working on this. Also if you get a code other than a sensor problem, I would suggest taking it to a professional.
