Question about 2009 Hyundai Elantra

2 Answers

I have a new 2009 Elantra, three weeks old. ''Passenger Air Bag Off'' light stayed on while driving to work. With car running, went around and sat in passenger seat, made adjustments, etc. Light went out and seems to be working properly now. However, why did it come on in the first place? Car is brand new.

That light is letting you know that there is insufficient weight on the seat - so the sensor did not turn on the airbag.

The next time you turn the vehicle on - it will do the same... if there is not ??45lbs?? in the seat.

If there is nobody in the seat and the light goes out - the sensor (or under-seat wiring) is bad.

2006 Mercury Grand Marquis air bag light flashes three times pauses then another three. It then stay on. I assume this is fault 33. Any ideas on where to start looking? Thanks in advance.


Actually I don't recommend car owners working on the air bag system. It can be very dangerous should one of the bags deploy by accident.
Code 33 is for an open or high resistance on the passenger side bag circuit which could be several different components or the wiring harness.

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.

Air bag light comes on and stays on. Never any accidents.


Had the same problem, found the wire disconnected under the driver seat (there is a yellow plug and with one red wire, which is fine, and one green wire, which is broken. Fixed the wire, light went off.

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!

Passenger Air Bag Deactivation (PAD) Switch
The passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) switch:
  • is located on the instrument panel to the right of the climate controls.
  • contains a light emitting diode (LED) that indicates when the PAD switch is activated (passenger air bag disabled).
  • allows the passenger air bag deployment circuit to be disabled using the ignition key.
  • should be used whenever a child safety seat is being used in the front passenger seating position.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Prove Out the System
Prove out the system means to turn the ignition switch from the OFF to the RUN position and visually monitor the air bag indicator with the air bag modules installed. The air bag indicator will light continuously for approximately six seconds and then turn off. If an air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) fault is present, the air bag indicator will either:
  • fail to light.
  • remain lit continuously.
  • flash.
The flashing might not occur until approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch has been turned from the OFF to the RUN position. This is the time required for the restraints control module (RCM) to complete the testing of the SRS. If the air bag indicator is inoperative and an SRS fault exists, a chime will sound in a pattern of five sets of five tone bursts. If this occurs, the air bag indicator will need to be repaired before diagnosis can continue.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Active Commands
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag indicator, passenger air bag deactivation (PAD) lamp and chime. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator, the PAD lamp, chime and the chime are activated simultaneously for approximately four seconds. All devices are deactivated automatically.
