When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks 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 the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

2011 Kia Sorento air bag light came on while driving. Will pulling the air bag indicator light fuse cause it to go off or deploy


I would recommend taking it to a KIA dealer, the circuitry for the Airbags can be very sensitive to the loss of power. And you may end up creating a second problem by pulling the fuse without knowing the proper reset procedure.

Air bag light stays on, on my 2003 kia sorento


Good Evening. The airbag system in the Kia sedona is a little more technical than some others in the way that it will not go away with disconnecting the battery to clear the codes in the system. Not always does it mean there is a current problem with the system. The only way to know for sure is either call the dealer or call your local repair shops and ask if any of them have the ability to scan and read the airbag system codes. Once you know what the code is then you can start to diagnose the problem. I hope this helps.
