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.

my advise to you is not to attempt a repair to the airbag system yourself. The airbag module can be set off by static electricty & goes off with the force of a shotgun blast

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.

SOURCE: I locked my keys in

To avoid getting it towed to the dealer (where they'd remove the rear seat to access the trunk),
you can get out your socket set/tool kit and remove the rear seat yourself and reach into the
trunk. If this car has fold-down rear seat(s) or bolster(s), simply fold them down and reach in.
Haynes manual (or online manuals) for this car aren't yet accessible, but a call to your Kia
dealership's service dept. may get a mechanic on the line who can give you a few good tips, or
pay a handy neighbor to figure out how to remove (and re-install) the rear seat to get access to
the trunk...

I own a 2002 Kia Optima. Recently, there is a rumbling noise coming from the front center of the car into the cabin onc you get underway. The faster you go, the louder the rumbling noise. No other problems...


no worries about the airbag light. just be sure to wear you seatbelt. in the event of and accident the airbag may or may not deploy! but to replace the airbag unit its self will be very costly $800-2500. as for the noise you may need to be more specific. its can be anything from alignment, bad ball join, bad motor mount or tran mount, bent rim, or even a bad tire

Air bag light stays on but has never been deployed - won't pass state inspection until problem is solved


When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

KIA: Optima - AirBag warning light stays on...


I had the same problem on our 2003 sedona. Turned out one of the wires in the driver's seat belt is infamous for going bad and the repair is usually replacing the seat belt. I would have thought they would have cured that by now.
