You can't. If the airbag light is on, there is a defect in the bag. Get to your dealer or other qualified shop. There may be a recall on this if there are multiple issues out there.

Bob's got it. The most common defect is a loose connecter in one of the various wiring harnesses involved. Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag codes. Disconnecting the battery & waiting won't do it either. Only the dealer's $$$ computer will.

Typical code readers (OBDII) won't touch the airbag lights. Neither will disconnecting the battery and waiting. If the airbag light is flashing, there's a code involved. The system may or may not work when needed. If it's on steady, the system is failed and will not deploy when needed. Typically, it's a connector in the various harnesses involved. Unfortunately, the Kia shop manuals just say "replace everything" so they're no help. The dealer has the very expensive code reader to read & reset the airbag light. In other words, $$$.

I own a 2002 Kia Optima. Recently, there is a rumbling noise coming from the front center of the car into the cabin onc you get underway. The faster you go, the louder the rumbling noise. No other problems...


no worries about the airbag light. just be sure to wear you seatbelt. in the event of and accident the airbag may or may not deploy! but to replace the airbag unit its self will be very costly $800-2500. as for the noise you may need to be more specific. its can be anything from alignment, bad ball join, bad motor mount or tran mount, bent rim, or even a bad tire

The airbag light in dash staying on in my 2004


Under driver and passenger seats are wires that go to seat belt anchors.These are tensioner wires.Unplug the wires from the plug under the seat.clean and replace.Doing this while the ignition is turned off.Then turn ignition back on.In 90% of the time this is your problem.Constant movement of seat causes this or rear passengers kicking plugs off.Good luck phil.

My 2006 kia optima airbag indicator light stays on


my advise to you is not to attempt a repair to the airbag system yourself. The airbag module can be set off by static electricty & goes off with the force of a shotgun blast
