    No clarification request; a comment. 

    I hope you didn't buy this car used and without an independent inspection.
    This is one item that is often either stolen from the car or the car was in an accident that caused the bag to deploy and the expended bag not replaced.

Certainly not good to drive with airbag off, but it may just be a burned out fuse so check your fuse panel(s) for a bad fuse, which will cause light to come on.

First have someone check the airbag system codes.The light will not stay out if there is a defect in the system.It's usually the drivers seat belt buckle or belt retractor switch.

2000 Hundai elantra air conditioner blowa cold air all the time

Well Doug in Mesa AZ, sounds like you've got a AC control module malfunction. Tell you what, if you want to troubleshoot it yourself, Go to and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.
If you don't want to fix it yourself, Take your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

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!

Air bag light stays on ?

Of course you should be concerned, air bags save lives, when the light is on the system is turned off, you need to have a scanner connected to your car to get the code that will help a trained technician fix the problem, do not attempt this repair yourself unless you are a trained pro, if the air bag goes off with out warning it can cause very grave personnel injury, such as a broken neck, this I know first hand.
