Unfortunately that will need to be checked out by your KIA dealership. The light indicates a malfunction with some part of the system. If you're under 80,000 miles it may be covered under warranty.

SOURCE: RESET SWITCH

You can't. If the airbag light is on, there is a defect in the bag. Get to your dealer or other qualified shop. There may be a recall on this if there are multiple issues out there.

SOURCE: The airbag light in dash staying on in my 2004

Under driver and passenger seats are wires that go to seat belt anchors.These are tensioner wires.Unplug the wires from the plug under the seat.clean and replace.Doing this while the ignition is turned off.Then turn ignition back on.In 90% of the time this is your problem.Constant movement of seat causes this or rear passengers kicking plugs off.Good luck phil.

Airbag light won't light on dash


Usually if you pull the fuse the light will come on because the system is disabled. You may need to get the airbag module checked out.
Its fairly touchy stuff, you have to be careful not to blow the airbag by mistake when you are working on the system.

Chevrolet silverado 2004 airbag sensors reset


The airbag in your vehicle is an important safety device, and the airbag module ensures the proper functioning of your vehicle's air bag. If this module is not functioning properly, your airbag may not deploy during a crash. When there is a malfunction, your airbag module warning light will illuminate on your vehicle's dash. You will need to have the airbag assembly checked out by a qualified mechanic, but once that is done, you can reset the warning light and airbag module unit. If you've never done this type of job before, it should only take you 5 minutes.
    • 1 Open the hood and loosen the retaining nut on the negative cable wire cable clamp using a socket wrench.
    • 2 Slide the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal.
    • 3 Wait 3 to 5 seconds and reconnect the battery terminal. Tighten the retaining nut using a socket wrench. Once the power is restored, the airbag module should be reset.
    • 4 Verify that the module has been reset by turning the ignition key to the "II" position and checking to make sure that the airbag light does not illuminate.

I hit a deer and airbag didn't deploy but airbag light is on. I did smell a burning smell that the owners manual said would accompany airbag deployment. Could my airbags pop out at any moment and is it...


Are you sure the smell was not deer meat on the radiator?
No one can honestly say its safe to drive and that an airbag won't suddenly deploy. Best thing to do is have it scanned to see why the light is on. Most shops will have a scanner that should work for this (save you the high cost of a dealer). The light may just be on because there is crash data stored in the SRS module and it may need be replaced.

2004 jeep liberty limited 4x4 airbag light goes on when you start the car then goes off for a few seconds then comes back on . both dash light and grab handle lights do this


The most probable reason for the code is the battery being dead for a while, there is a capacitor in the airbag circuit to make sure the airbag can go off in a collision even if the battery disconnects itself in the process. There is a slim chance it might be something else but either way the shop should be able to tell you what the problem is, and get it fixed; sometimes, scanner reader could helpfull to know exactly what fault code is stored there. keep in mind that this isnt an OBD codes reader, this is more specific for Airbag Systems.

Also, isnt rare to know that the airbag warning light is indicating the airbag(s) may not be functionig. As it says in the manual, "Ignoring the AIRBAG warning light in your instrument panel could mean you won't have the airbags to protect you, (or your passangers), in a collision...have the airbag system checked right away". Always wear your seatbelt. On 2004 there is a light on the passanger grab bar that indicates the passanger airbag is off. This happens when a child is in the seat to protect the child from the sudden force of an airbag. It can also be fooled by a package or briefcase on the seat. This is normal. When an adult sits on the passanger side the light should go off. This information was an addition to the 2004 manual.

Check THIS ARTICLE for additional details.

Hope this helps.

On my 1990 ltd cv air bag lights


Airbag lights are a bit more involved of a process. It could be as simple as getting your airbag control module reset (usually about $100-150) or it could be the result of a different problem. Possible causes for an airbag light are: 1) crash data stored in the airbag control module, requiring reset 2) bad clockspring - this sends data to the airbag inflator module 3) other fault in the SRS system. The only way to be sure what the problem may be is to get the system read for code and go from there. The airbag light will stay on regardless of a manual reset by removing the battery cable because the codes are stored in a different memory than standard trouble codes. Since the car checks the airbag system completely once you start, that is why the light won't go off until the data is erased from the airbag system control module. Once you find out what the cause is, getting the necessary parts and installing them would be simple enough. Do not just reset the system, have it scanned for possible codes first. Having an airbag randomly inflate while driving could prove to be problematic.
