Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

Whenever the "Air Bag" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the SRSCM (Supplemental Restraint System Control Module). You'll need a Hyundai Scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in SRSCM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there.

Airbag light on 2001 sonata, also small modular under pasanger seat broken cover, and under driver seat there is a wonnector that does'nt go anywhere. thank's


First the airbag system can be dangerous to work on and it is usually best to consult a professional since to accidental inflation of an airbag can cause injury, do not cut any wires and disconnect the battery when working on the system.
When the airbag light is on it disables the airbag system inmost vehicles meaning if there is a collision the airbags will not deploy. Some autoparts stores can check codes which is where to start with the warning light on and modular connected check the airbag trouble codes with this information it will be easier to diagnose the system and the cause of your problem. I hope this helps

No they can only check engine codes and by law they are not allowed to reset any ststems that have a malfunction. A airbag light will reset if the problem is corrected.

2005 Hyundai Sonata airbag light just came on as I was driving along. Turned engine off and back on and the light was still on. Dealership wants $80.00 to diagnois. Is there a recall or does anyone know...


My airbag light stays on too. It could be a code you could just clear. The Sonata has several airbags. It could be a non working seat airbag, or even a thrown off senser (which is common in this car)! I dont think its worth 80 dollars to fix at the dealership. Go to auto parts store and get it checked.

You can try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so, then hooking it back up, but usually an airbag fault warning has to be actively reset with diagnostic software.

I have a 2001 Sonata and the airbag light came on and won't go off.The car is in very good condition and low mileage.Could this be a fuse that's blown or what?? Thanks


it would not be a fuse. there were certain reflash tsb's. check with your local hyundai/kia dealer.does the horn still work? if not its your "clock spring" which sits behind the steering wheel. but there are a few seat sensors aslo.

Airbag light stays on


I would advise getting the dealer to check it. Some small local shops will cut the light off, but there have been cases where the air bag can go off for no reason, and potentially cause a saftey issue. I would say to get it check for your saftey. An airbag light can also be a forwarning to a potential computer problem. Good luck, and be careful.
