Question about 2003 Hyundai Tiburon

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!

My airbag lite stays on in my hyundai 2003 santa fe what does this mean


A solid air bag light indicates the air bag computer detects a fault in the air bag system. If the light is on the air bags won't deploy in the event of an accident. The computer will have to be scanned to determine what the problem is.

Same as above....plus more


Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Air Bag/Seat Belt lights are on


Exact same problem. Cost to replace seatbelt latch is $215 total. Called Hyundai and they said nothing could be done because my car was manufactured after the dates affected by the recall.

2003 Tiburon GT-V6, Air Bag light has come on and stays on, PLEASE tell me how to fix without going to the Dealer, Local Dealer has mixed service results


Sorry. The airbag system is propietary to Hyundai manufacturing. The Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) in the Supplememental Restraint System (SRS) are unique to Hyundai - unavoidable unless you can find a High-Scan Pro scanned to pull the code and get the wiring diagrams to solve this. Solution is the Dealer - pay the diag fee and they will give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc)... I know this isn't what you want to hear.. but it's Hyundai's system and only Hyundai has the solution.

Airbag light on


Whoever Told you that is an Idiot! There is a Relay for the Air Bag System Under the Hood in the Fuse Relay box. Sometimes the Dealer must reset But, Not usually.
