Question about Hyundai Elantra
The best thing to do is drive it down to your local auto parts store and borrow (for free) there on board diagnostics (OBD II) scanner tool. Hook this tool up underneath the drivers side steering wheel and scan your vehicles computer for error codes. Write these codes (if any) down on paper and then look in the back of a Haynes repair manual. In the back of that Haynes manual it will have the compete list of trouble codes. Match your code up with the code in the book and this will pinpoint the exact problem with your airbag system. After the tool scans your vehicles computer you can use the tool to reset all error codes and your airbag light will go off. If it stays off then you DON'T have a problem with your airbag system. If it comes back on then at least you will have the trouble code written down to research what sensor has failed.

What your friend told you is very true. When this happens on the Elantras you need to reset the computer. But sometimes when the car battery dies or operated on low voltage, it can cause sensor's to go bad. I would first say to try and reset the computer with a OBD 2, if that doesnt fix your issue then you will need to replace the sensor on the car, which is located under the dash. But if you replace the sensor yourself make 100% SURE you unplug the battery first before you touch the sensor other wise your air bags can fire. So just make sure that both the positive and negative wires are off of the battery
