Question about 2008 Hyundai Accent

1 Answer

Repost RE: 2009 Hyundai Acent Airbags

For business purposes I removed the passenger seat from my 2009 Hyundai accent. The AIRBAG light on the console is now lit. Have I disabled the entire system?
Would cutting the plugs away from the seat and reattaching the seat-halfs of the plugs back into their respective car-halfs, fool the system into thinking that the seat is there, but no one is sitting in it?

Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

How do i switch off the passenger airbag in my hyundai getz


I WOULD NEED TO RESEARCH THE ACCENT A LITTLE MORE BUT MOST NEWER VEHICLES NOW HAVE A WEIGHT ACTIVATED SWITCH IN THE PASSENGER SIDE FRONT SEAT TO PROVIDE UNWANTED DEPLOYMENT OF THE PASSENGER SIDE AIRBAG WHEN NO ONE WAS SITTING IN IT USUALLY AROUND SEVENTY POUNDS TO ACTIVATE OTHERWORDS YOU DO NOT WANT TO DISABLE DUE TO LIABILTY ISSUES

Hyundai Getz - Passanger airbag or not...


If it says "airbag" on the stering wheel AND on the dash in front of the passenger,then it has a passengers side airbag.
Children are much safer in the back seat in the event of a collision.

Passenger detector malfunction disables airbags


You can call the parts dept. of your hyundai dealer. Have your VIN# ready let them know you need a price on the pressure sensor that is inside the passenger seat. If they ask, let them know what it is for. which is to turn on and turn off the passenger air-bag. Remember to stick to the subject, I wouldn't gossip to them about what the service dept. said. through this you will be more informed, good luck.

Air bag light stays on


If your airbag light comes on it means its not working. Some of the newer airbag systems have weight sensors under the seats and anything lodged under them can disable the passenger airbag and possibly cause the light to go on. If there are no other symptoms, and nothing impeding the airbags then the car thinks the airbag wont work. If you are concerned for your son's safety, take it to a qualified mechanic and have them check/replace your airbag. Good Luck!

Need to Install A Passenger Airbag in Hyundai Accent 2002


on the 2002 Accent we have, the area is clearly identified w/the "cutout" area and marked SRS Airbag...perhaps look at Hyundai.com at the owners' manual online, or look at used cars/junk yards to compare dash panels to yours...would think it VERY difficult for avg person to perform this task
