SOURCE: resetting airbag on 2002 kia rio
Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag lights. Neither will disconnecting the battery and waiting. If the airbag light is flashing, there's a code involved. The system may or may not work when needed. If it's on steady, the system is failed and will not deploy when needed. Typically, it's a connector in the various harnesses involved. Unfortunately, the Kia shop manuals just say "replace everything" so they're no help. The dealer has the very expensive code reader to read & reset the airbag light. In other words, $$$.

Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Engine torque signal malfunction
Threshold Value ~ Circuit continuity: Open or shorted
Enable Conditions ~ NA
Time Requirements ~ Continuous
MIL Illumination ~ No MIL illumination
1)Open between TCM (C221-41) and ECM (C254-68).
2)Short to B+ or GND between C221-41 and C254-68.
With ignition off, disconnect C254 from ECM and C221 from TCM. Measure resistance between C221-41 and C254-68 (less than 1 ohm).
Is resistance as specified?
Go to step 2.
Locate source of open or high resistance and repair as necessary.
Measure resistance between C254-68 and GND (infinite resistance).
Is resistance as specified?
Go to step 3.
Locate source of short to GND and repair as necessary.
Turn ignition on and measure voltage at C254-68 (0v).
Is voltage as specified?
Thoroughly check for loose, bent or corroded terminals in circuit than go to step 4.
