Question about 2003 Hyundai 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?
