Personally i would look online for a new or even used one(not deployed of coarse) and fix it your self, once you take that into a shop and they put it in the system, then your screwed! A deployed air bag automaticly classifies your car as totaled and you will have a marked title or salvage title bringing the price of your car WAY down! Plus they will charge you WAY more then what it cost part and labor included, pretty much they will ******** and there's not much you can do about it. PS i believe you have to buy the whole system, not just the air bag)

Kia spectra air bag light on

Do not leave it loose as it is dangerous for any shortage and might cause the unexpected.What to do follow my advice firstly if you know anything about electrics the go on if not take it to an expert Electrician. If you know just remove the battery Positive terminal leave it for 5 minutes without doing anything and then move the seat for easy access and repair the wire with proper connectors go according to wire colors to much. Re connect and I believe the light will go off or you might need a scanner to reset it.

Losing power over head light, radio, air bag light on.

The light is on because there is a problem with the air bag system. When the air bag light is on the system is not working and will not deploy in the event of an accident. When the air bag light is on the system has set a code in the computer a scanning device can retrieve the code. The code will give you a clue where the problem is. You need a scan tool to check out the code.

The "Air Bag" light is on, mechanic didn't know what to do. The manual does not give any suggestion on problem plus I'm not sure which air bag, driver or passenger?

check your owners manuel under air bag , i dont have any info on your 05 optima , but most owners manuels tell you what if this happens and the most liklley causes . you might also look up the blue book value before you think about pouring any large amounts of money into your vehicle shoul a air bag need replacing. air bags are exspensive probley more then the car is worth . my 03 rio is woth $500 and my 04 spectra is worth $800.

The air bag light is on in a kia spectra that I want to buy. What are the possible problems?

There is no way of knowing without running codes. Also know that with the light on the bags can deploy without warning while driving.
