2002 Hyundai Elantra, airbag warning light stays on

I recently purchased a 2002 Hyundai Elantra for my son to drive and the airbag warning light is staying on. I heard there was a recall of 2001 and 2002 Elantras for an airbag issue so I contacted Hyundai and gave them my VIN number. As it turned out my vehicle was not included in this recall. It was manufactured about 4 months after the cutoff date. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for things I can try to fix this issue before I have to take it into the shop. Thanks.

Airbags can be as dangerous and deadly, as easily as they can save a life. The airbag warning light is telling you that your vehicle has no airbags at this time.

If you don't understand the total airbag system, it's best left to a professional. It's worth the expense to have operable airbags, rather than chance a collision without operable airbags. My suggestion to you is to let the dealer fix your system so it is guaranteed.

1999 hyundai elantra airbag light


Depending on type of SRST, the air bag module may have detected something that in case of accident, it may prevent the airbags to deploy.
Have the car scanned for error codes. If the the warning light is ON, there sure is an error code.
Remember that some manufacturers (according to local laws), program the ECM SRST system to issue a warning at certain mileage or time, just to remind you that it is time to replace the air bag assemblies at the steering wheel and dashboard...

(Ouch... this may be expensive!)

My 2007 Elantra's airbag light stays on. The dealers says it's not part of the recall. How do I know that is correct?


Whether it is covered or not goes By the fault code that is present whenever the SRS system warning light is turned on. Airbags save lives, fix it and fight over who pays later. Keep the all the paper work and appeal to Hyundai to help pay the bill to fix it.

Air Bag light stays on


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.

Airbag light


Take it into a Hyundai Dealership and have the SRSCM scanned for the specific trouble codes. They will tell you EXACTLY where the problem is and what's needed to fix it. NOW, having written that, if you want to try 'CLEARING' the airbag light to see if it comes back 'ON', disconnect the battery cables (+) and (-) from the battery and touch them together for 10 seconds (this is with the ignition key in the 'RUN' position). Reconnect the cables to the battery to see if the Airbag light comes back on or stays on. If it does, then have it diagnosed by a qualified technician.

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!
