It is attached to the bell housing on the drivers side. The starter is located in the back of the engine, under the intake manifold.

SOURCE: 2000 Chevrolet Malibu LS airbag problems

The passenger side airbag is a lot easier then driver side. Take the glove box out and you will see two 10mm bolts holding it in place. When you open the passenger side front door, remove the panel on the side of the dash and you will see yellow connectors.The 1 closest to the front is attached to the air bag, it is clipped into the frame. Just pull it loose and take it out and your done. For the Driver side, it takes a skinny T27 to remove the two star bolts, then just disconnect the horn red clip and ground and install new airbag. The module is located under the passenger seat, underneath the carpet. Kinda stupid but thats where its at. You also need to replace the front impact sensor located behind the grille on the back side of the metal bar to each side. Follow the hood latch down. Also just to make sure, you know to disconnect the battery before you do all this. You don't want new airbags to accidentally deploy.

Kia spectra 2008..the light that comes on when your door opens nd closes is out what and where is the fuse,


Hi. It's called a courtesy light and the location of the fuse will depend upon your vehicle make and model.

Have you checked the bulb?

Edit: It seems Kia call it a "room light" - It's likely to be a bulb problem still though:

the airbag light is on, it telling you that there have a problem on your airbag system, such as simple wiring issue with a sensor, or it could be as bad as an abs module. it need to be plugged into a OBD2 code scanner/reader to know exactly what part triggered the code.
