Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

1 Answer

Airbag light is on - 2003 Tiburon

Air bag light is on and stays on. Hyundai had a re-call for this problem where the driver-side seatbelt was affecting the circuit for the airbag. I had the problem checked at a Hyundai dealer (showed them the re-call) and they confirmed that that is cause of the problem and I will have to replace the seat belt (as stated in the re-call). Hyundai Canada is claiming that there isn't any outstanding re-calls for this. My question is, is there a body responsible for dealing with this and how do I contact them?

    Same problem here, airbag light stays on. I am hoping someone post more on how to fix or more information on a recall.

    Same problem - get it fixed immediately! My 2003 Tiburon, just had the PASSENGER airbag explode! The car was going under 5mph leaving a parking lot, when BAM, it exploded, causing the bag to hit the rearview mirror which slammed into the windshield cracking the windshield. Driver got startled at the explosion and the burning powder that came out, he took his hand off the shift knob and the steering wheel, took his attention to the passenger side and the car skimmed a pole causing bumper damage. We were lucky if this happened at 60mph on a highway it could have been a total disaster.
    I am not sure and have found no evidence that the airbag light is connected to the PASSENGER side. Everything i read says that light is connected to the Driver side.

    I have the same problem with the SRS light being on. I own a 2003 Hyundai Tiburon. I did some research cause I didn't want to take me car into the shop yet. My car runs fine and maintenance is properly kept. It appears the light comes on at a certain mileage interval. Mine came on after I hit the 90,000 mi mark. My understanding of this is that it's automatically programmed into some hyundai models. When the light comes on, you can only bring it into a hyundai dealer because no other companies will be able to help you. They just have to plug your car into their machine and scan it to make sure your car is operating well and that you've had your regular maintenance. If all is well, they just end up resetting the Air bag light and you're good to go..with a fee. I also, know this because a friend of mine, who is a manager at a rental car company, informed me that it's what they have to do to their hyundai models when the SRS(airbag) light is on. Hope this helps!

Passenger seat belt warning stays on even with ignition off


Possible seatbelt latch problem. There are sensors in the latch part of the assembly that inform the restraint module as to what is happening. Sometimes foreign objects get stuck in the latch assemblies ( Children ) and can affect operation. Scanning the airbag module for codes will let you know what part of the restraint system is causing these lights to be on. As long as the airbag light remains on, the airbags will not deploy in the event of an accident

I have a code that show on CARMD about the srs light (airbag) on my dash , how do I reset or shut it off without changing an airbag


Hi there:The Restraints Control Module (RCM / located behind right side of the instrument panel) monitors the resistance of the driver side air bag circuit loop and the air bag module igniter at RCM, if the resistance is greater than 3.6 ohms, the RCM will store diagnostic trouble code B1994 and flash lamp fault code.
About the possible causes, pay attention that a high resistance on the driver side air bag circuit can be caused by:
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1257 (WH/LB).
  • - damaged wiring on circuit 1258 (BN/LB)
  • - damaged driver side air bag module.
  • - damaged RCM.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

What does a flashing air bag light mean on a 1993 Grand Marquis?


A flashing airbag light can mean one of two things. The first possibility is that your battery is in death row. Have it tested at your local parts store. The second possibility is that there is an actual problem with the airbag system. Below is a list of airbag codes, which will flash on the warning light. For example, the light will flash once, pause and then flash twice == 12.


12=Low Battery Voltage
13= Air Bag Circuit Shorted to Ground
14=Primary Crash Sensor Circuit Shorted to Ground
21=Safing Sensor Not Mounted to Properly
22=Safing Sensor Output Shorted to Battery Voltage
23=Safing Sensor Circuit Input Feed/Return Circuit Open
24=Safing Sensor Output Feed/Return Circuit Open
32=Driver Side Air Bag Circuit High Resistance or Open
33=Passenger Side Air Bag Circuit High Resistance or Open
34=Driver Side Air Bag Circuit Low Resistance or Shorted
35=Passenger Side Air Bag Circuit Low Resistance or Shorted
41=RH Primary Crash Sensor Feed/Return Circuit Open
42=LH Primary Crash Sensor Feed/Return Circuit Open
44=RH Primary Crash Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly
45=LH Primary Crash Sensor Not Mounted to Vehicle Properly
51=Air Bag Diagnostic Monitor Internal Thermal FuseFuse Blown Due to Intermittent Short to Ground
52=Backup SupplyVoltage Boost Fault
53=Primary Crash Sensor Circuits Resistance to Ground or Air Bag Diagnostic Fault


Hope this helps...

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off


To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

99 hyundai sonata airbag light and reset.


There are no campaigns/recalls for the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System - Air Bag). However, there is a Service Bulleting regarding the wiring harness under the seats:
DESCRIPTION: Motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and connector may result in illumination of the air bag warning light and one or both diagnostic codes listed below:
  • B1378: Driver side air bag (DSAB) resistance high.
  • B1382: Passenger side air bag (PSAB) resistance high.
This campaign provides a new side impact air bag wiring harness connector mounting procedure. VEHICLES AFFECTED:
  • Model : 1999 - 2002 SONATA vehicles
  • Production date range: - Produced through July 23, 2001
  • VIN range: - Produced through KMHWF35H82A526636
SPECIAL NOTES: The service procedure to be followed depends on the original wire harness routing under the seats. The required parts are different for each procedure.
  • For vehicles produced on or before June 30, 1999, use the procedure for Type 1 seats. Order service kit part number 88010-38A00.
  • For vehicles produced on or after July 1, 1999, use the procedure for Type 2 seats. Order service kit part number 88010-38B00.
If your vehicle doesn't fall within the production range, it's not affected.
I recommend you take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Department and ask them if your vehicle has had this repair already. If it doesn't apply, pay the diagnostic fee to find out what the problem is. They will give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).. Then you'll know what the problem is.
