Question about 2004 Hyundai XG350

2 Answers

Chronic problem with airbag light staying on.

I have had the XG350L into the dealer about 5 times for an air bag warning light that stays on. When they have reset it without finding a problem it is a very tempory solution. The problem has been a loose connector twice and once they replaced a faulty side air bag. Is there any way that I can check the connectors without going to the dealer.

    We have had our XG350 2004 in the dealer about 8 times since we bought it. They claim it is due to trash under the seat but never produce any trash that they found. They reset the alarm and it is good for about 6 weeks. Appears to occur when the drive seat is moved back for me since my wife is short. Does not occur right away. Sometimes is will flicker off and on for a day or too and then for no special reason it stays on solid then back to the dealer. What a pain!

    My wife and I have XG350s - 2002 & 2004. Both cars' Air Bag lights are ALWAYS on! I hate dealers and I will never go to them, but I'd like to find out if our air bags need service of some kind or if it is just a glitch in my/our electrical systems. From all of the comments here, it seems like it is. Any help?

Not sure of the year of your car, but there was a recall to resecure the harness connector. If it is 2005 the entire airbag harness should be replaced, Sorry only the dealer can access the air bag info.

Tighten battery terminals tightly or get a lead terminal post cap and tighten the battery cable very tight. the air bag light triggers when you hit a bump or just have a lose connection to the battery. Same thing happened to me

Ford 2001F250 Air bag light is flashing all the time

You have a problem or fault with your airbag system and the system would not work if you had a accident. Working on that system incorrectly could cause the airbag to inflate. Take your truck to the dealer or professional garage.

Air bag warning light comes on and stays on. when I start the car the airbag light flashes once and then stays lit.

Hello, This can be something that really needs attention. The warning can tell you that there is a bad Impact sensor on the front bumper or that the Chemicals or contacts in one of your Airbags is not correct.

You really don't want the thing triggering your bags by accident or having a bag that will not inflate. There should be a Diagnostic plug a scanner can read. It may be something any Bump shop can attend to if you want to avoid a Dealer.

Air bag light stays solid for 98 maxima.

Try resetting the air bag warning light...

1. Turn on the ignition with the driver's door open;
2. Quickly flick the driver's door switch 7 times.

This will clear the warning. See if that makes the light behave. If not, you have invested about a minute of your time.

Light stays on and warning for airbag service on reader board

If the airbag light stays on after it completes it's "check light" process then there is a fault in the air bag system. It could be anything from a bad sensor (there are 3 of them) to a wire that has become unplugged. This problem should be repaired as soon as possible because the air bags will not deploy in a collision while the warning light is continually on.

Air bag warning light staying on checked fuzes under bonnet ok

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.
