Question about Hyundai Motor 2003 Elantra
My recently bought hyundai 2003 elantra GLS has airbag light on. It runs without any problem though. I wonder if I can identify if it is a sensor problem or is that real airbag issue. I know airbag is a huge thing, but I would like to know a bit more before I take it to dealer to pay two hours just to diagonalize. Thank you!
A malfunction in the air bag system won't cause any driveability issues. There are many parts to the supplemental restraint system that could put the air bag light on. The computer needs to be scanned to figure out what part of the system needs to be checked. Usually it's not the air bag itself that is the problem, but more likely a clock spring in the steering column, broken wire somewhere or even an impact sensor. If this is something you want to get repaired you may have to bring it into a repair shop. Keep in mind your not limited to dealers though, many independent repair facilities are capable of diagnosing and repairing air bag problems.

If all you want to do is find out what DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) is stored in the computer, it doesn't take 2 hours -- only a minute or so... they might be able to scan it on the service lane - no diag fee (if the dealership'S service department is willing to do it). There have been very, VERY few problems with the 2003 Elantra Supplemental Restraint System (AIRBAG). It's a good chance that it just a 'History" code that may have occured during a low battery voltage condition.
