Question about 2006 Hyundai Sonata

1 Answer

My 2006 hyundai sonata airbag light started to blink off and on for a day or two and now its on and wont shut off. I dont understand what could be wrong. I recently got new tires on the front of my car and i didnt realize that the guy put the wrong sizes on, the size was supposed to be 215/60/16 and they put 215/65/16 on so i went to have new back ones put on that match and now the light wont turn off...would that make a diff?

SOURCE: 99 hyundai sonata airbag light and reset.

There are no campaigns/recalls for the SRS (Supplemental Restraint System - Air Bag). However, there is a Service Bulleting regarding the wiring harness under the seats:
DESCRIPTION: Motion of the side impact air bag wiring harness and connector may result in illumination of the air bag warning light and one or both diagnostic codes listed below:

  • B1378: Driver side air bag (DSAB) resistance high.
  • B1382: Passenger side air bag (PSAB) resistance high.
This campaign provides a new side impact air bag wiring harness connector mounting procedure. VEHICLES AFFECTED:
  • Model : 1999 - 2002 SONATA vehicles
  • Production date range: - Produced through July 23, 2001
  • VIN range: - Produced through KMHWF35H82A526636
SPECIAL NOTES: The service procedure to be followed depends on the original wire harness routing under the seats. The required parts are different for each procedure.
  • For vehicles produced on or before June 30, 1999, use the procedure for Type 1 seats. Order service kit part number 88010-38A00.
  • For vehicles produced on or after July 1, 1999, use the procedure for Type 2 seats. Order service kit part number 88010-38B00.
If your vehicle doesn't fall within the production range, it's not affected.
I recommend you take the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Department and ask them if your vehicle has had this repair already. If it doesn't apply, pay the diagnostic fee to find out what the problem is. They will give you an estimate of repairs (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).. Then you'll know what the problem is.

SOURCE: how to remove airbag light its staing on 2007 hyundai sonata

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.

SOURCE: airbag came on for no reason why 2001 hyundai

Here's a quick check list for most common cost of SRS / Air bag problem.

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger seat belt buckles

Dirty contacts on seat belt connectors (under seats)

Dirty contacts on driver and passenger sides weight sensors (under seat)

Seat covers

Weight on passenger seat
(Example: grocery package trigger SRS / Air Bag light on the way home.)

I recommend you to pass an vacuum over the contacts and use CRC electronic parts cleaner to rule out connectivity problem.

I DO NOT recommend disconnecting the negative battery connector to clean the code(s).

Without the code(s) the dealer will takes "BILLABLE" time to reproduce the problem.

Please rate my answer if it is useful to you.

Cheers,

I read on another site to check the "yellow" connector under the passenger seat. Connector ncould be loose or wires that go in the connector may be loose.

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.

Are you touching the glass part of the bulb with your fingers? The oil in your skin will blow them right away. The lighters are common to blow the fuse with a bad phone charger cord. Can't help with the air bag. Good Luck!

My 2006 hyundai sonata alarm keeps going off


One word:

Dealer.

Next time just disconnect the battery until you get it towed as this is a warranty item. I'll bet some wondered if this was a prank question like I did, right?
