My airbag light stays on too. It could be a code you could just clear. The Sonata has several airbags. It could be a non working seat airbag, or even a thrown off senser (which is common in this car)! I dont think its worth 80 dollars to fix at the dealership. Go to auto parts store and get it checked.

    I've read here online that it takes a different kind of code reader to determine what the problem is when the airbag light comes on. Does the auto parts store have one of those devices?

    Yep! They told me that same thing but believe it or not, I have fixed every broken sensor and problem without taking it to the dealership. If you take it to the right store, to the right guy, or crew, they can solve your problem. Call around and ask. Trust me, that will save you alot more money for a 60$ part! I went to autozone, got it read, and got more information and took every step along the way til it got fixed.

My 2008 Hyundai Sonata has a check engine light that stays on and ESC off. This happened as I was driving on the interstate at 60 mph and it idled all the way down. Hyundai dealership told me it was a...


When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

Air bag light


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 hour prior.

You can try disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes or so, then hooking it back up, but usually an airbag fault warning has to be actively reset with diagnostic software.

BEST SOLUTION: Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

Airbag light wont go off for hynadai acemt


The communication with SRS CM (Supplemental Restraint System Control Module) is proprietary - Hyundai Dealership Scanner equipment. Best solution: Take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).
