Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata
They sometimes can be triggered without being a problem but you could have a problem and in some cars the air bag will deploy for no reason!
Have it checked immediately!
Call auto parts stores to see if they will check it or call mechanic shops that can check it before you go!
I had this problem and it just needed a reset $50 (not cheap) but comforting!

Yes You can Replace The Sensor Yourself The Question Is Are You Willing To Tear Your Complete Steering Column Appart!
Also Special Tools Required ( Hex Headed Alan Bolts )
The Sensor Is Located On The Belly Side Of The Steering Column Under The Steering Wheel Beside The Ignition Switch
The Average Cost Of A Mecanic Tools And Labor Is Around $250.00
And Believe Me Its Worth It ! If You Don't Believe me Tear It Appart Yourself
Most Airbag Sensors Are Faulty On PreOwned Vehicles Anyway Because They Where Wrecked Prior And The Dealers Don't Want To Have them Fixed With The Crack Downs On The Lemon Laws In Most States.
Alot Of These So Called Make Shift Car lots Sell Em Every Day with Faulty Sensors !.
Anyway....I Would Suggest Taking It To A Authorized Ford Dealership And Have It Fixed At Least You Have A Bill And A Guarantee it deploys in case of a accident !

You can disconnect the battery for a few minutes. This will reset the computer. Re-connect the battery.
If the problem continues, you should call up auto parts stores to find one that has the meter for error code read-out. Get the code to find the problem. The read-out is free. Try Advance Auto, AutoZone etc.

They air bag module has lost communication or in other words, cant control a SIR component.
Take your vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan for codes, write the code down and respond back to me and we can go from there.
Let me know.

the impacts sensors are located on the front near the fenders.
messing with an airbag system is dangerous.
leave it to a qualified technician.there are many other components other than the sensors.

THE AIR BAG CONTROL MODULE IS ON THE FLOOR AHEAD OF THE CONSOLE.BECAREFUL YOU CAN CAUSE AIR BAGS EMPLOYMENT ACCIDENTALLY.THEY ARE DANGEROUS.THE DEALERSHIP HAS TO RETRIEVE AIR BAG FAULT CODE.

if your foult is driver side airbag and it is not blown out, you should check "clock spring" wires behind steering whell.
if foult is driver side belt tensioner, check conector underneeth driver seat.
on the end erase foult/s with diagnostic equipment.
