Air bag light stays on, never deployed

I have a 2002 Hyundai Sonota with around 122,800 miles on it....Recently the air bag ight would come on and then go off but now it is just on all the time....Does it have anything to do with my needing bearings in front passenger wheel?

If you have any doubts about your ability to safely work on an air bag system, you should have the dealer (or a qualified repair shop) repair your air bag problem. Either way, it should be repaired. Your air bag system may be disabled anytime the warning lamp is on.
Your two problems are unrelated.

My air bag light stays on on my 2004 sonata, this just started recently. Never have been in an accident. what or how can i turn it off. No air bags were deployed.


THE PROBLEM IS YOUR AIRBAG MODULE (computer) it is pretty expensive to fix since it needs to be replaced. Around $500 prolly more unless you know someone. Airbags won't go off randomly. But they prolly won't work when they are supposed to.

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.

Air bag light stays on


I had the same issue wit my 2006 Hyunda Santa Fe air bag light staying on. I had the system scanned and it was the passenger bottom seat. It has sensors in the padding that monitor the weight on the seat. If it is over 40-60 pounds then in case of an accident the air bag will deploy. This is to protect children in case they are setting in the front seat. However if the wire sensors over time break and the circuit is open then the air bag light will stay on. The bottom seat is around $300 dollars not counting labor to replace.

The Air bag light came on solid


If you want your air bag to work, you should take the vehicle to a shop for service. This light indicates it probably won't deploy in an accident.

2002 Lincoln ls air bag light came on 63000 miles someone told me it has to be reset.......


If the air bag light is on there is a problem with the air bag. The light means the air bags will not deploy in an accident. Only a qualified tech should work on air bags.

When the light is on all the time there is a problem in the air bag system. This is something you will want to take to a service center soon, as long as the light is on the air bags will not deploy in an accident.

Airbag light stays on


If it is a side air bag code, unbolt and tilt the seat up. there is a yellow connector on a black base, remove from base and tape the connector diagnolly and then all around the connector. then, re-install connector to the black base (it can get tight with the tape) and re-attach the seat. then, remove both battery terminal clamps and leave off for some time, helps to put your foot on the brake to discharge any voltage left in the system. re-attach the cables to the battery and turn key on, code should have been erased with battery disconnected and light should stay off.
