2007 hyundai Sonata air bag problem.

Hello I have a 2007 Hyundai Sonata SE and the airbag warning light is on. I took it to a mechanic & they ran a diagnostic of the issue. I was told that I have a faulty passenger side seat belt assembly, so I had them order me a new one. My question is, when I receive the new assembly, can I install it myself? The mechanic warned against it saying that I would need to re-program the computer in the car so it would "accept" the new part. Is this true? The part is pretty expensive & I don't want to screw it up if I were to install it myself it myself. I don't have computer reading or programming software for the Hyundai. It was suggested by another "mechanic" friend suggested that I may not need to program the computer to "accept" the new part. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    The shop I am taking it too is charging me $120.00 for the labor to install the new seat belt device & re-program the computer. The part costs $238.00. Not sure if this is reasonable, but I need to get it done soon, so I am taking it to the shop. Thanks again for the advice.

Yes after it is installed, They have to hook up a scranner to turn the light off ,It is a different scranner then what they use to check out the check engine light, Most small shops don,t have one because of the cost of it,

Air bag light on


Obviously the warning means there is a fault with the airbag system and while the warning appears the air bag system will probably not work. The warning light will remain until the problem is fixed.

You will need to take the car to a Hyundsi dealer to have them check for the fault and rectify it. It may just be a faulty or dead AB system sensor that needs to be replaced.

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.

You cannot, First thing you need to do is get the codes using a diagnostic scanner that is able to access the airbag module. Your basic code reader will not do this. The code will tell you what airbag has an issue. If your a smoker in the car most likley the ASH destroyed the clockspring under the steeing wheel.

How to remove airbag light its staing on 2007 hyundai sonata


You can try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so, then hooking it back up, but usually an airbag fault warning has to be actively reset with diagnostic software.

Air bag


The unconditional illumination of the Airbag Warning Light is mainly a result of movement or displacement of the Side Impact Wiring Harness and/or Side Impact Wiring Harness Connector which connects to the Adjustable Seat Cushion Assembly. It is very risky to drive a car with the light illuminated because this light is practically not a alert or System Failure but it tells the user that driving the car is dangerous as if a crash situation happens, the air bags will not come up and adding to the user's insecurity level in the car. Take it to a mechanic or a Authorized Dealer to get the Connector and Harness Assembly checked so that no loose connection is there.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

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.
