    The air bag light just came on one day last week and will not turn off now. On the other hand, the oil light never comes on, even when the oil is really low. Does this happen with anyone else?

    Thanks for this input, also have 99 Accent - had no problem until I replaced the alternator & battery and then afterwards the air bag light came on and won't go off. I have disconnected the neg. terminal on battery to disable & re-enable the SRS system as per Haynes manual, no luck. Any further suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

    if you disconnect the battery the air bag light will go off for about 15 mins afteryou connect it again. ive searched the net and the only thing i found was to take it to the nearest hyundai dealer and have them look at it. for me it turned out to be the alternator. i replacedit today and i have to go back to the dealer so they can turn the light off

We had the same problem. Turned out to be the alternator failing. Replaced it and problem went away. That was nearly 13 months ago.

Short circuit (or false positive) in one of the passenger's AB sensors circuitry (may be in door-to-body bundled cable). Have it replaced, reset electronics (refer to Manual), replace AB and go.
