If you are talking about the passenger side, are you setting something slightly heavy on the seat ( i.e. computer bag ) ? If so, this is normal, the seat sensor is registering that something ( someone ) is in the seat, but is not heavy enough to arm the airbag.

Think it is 60# to have the airbag armed with a passenger, this stops the airbag from being armed with a child seat on the seat.

If the airbag is off regardless of weight in the seat, this could be an issue with the seat sensor, and you would need to have it diagnosed by a shop that can access the SRS system ( this is not the typical code scanner ).

Turn off airbag light


Air bag lights self reset you still have a existing problem during the self test it has detected a open/shorted circuit disabling the system. watch your air bag light then turn key on do not start engine lamp comes on then goes out and then comes back on again. this is the start up initialization of the system and sensor or wiring does not pass the system goes fail safe. with a scanner the air bag code can be read thru the OBDii connector if having hyundai body control software.

A series of 5 beeps for 5 times every 30 miles, is that some kind of notice of trouble


When you first turn the key on, before you start the vehicle, it does a bulb test where it turns all the lights on the cluster to show they work. Check to see if your air bag light (a picture of a person with a bag, maybe says SRS or AIRBAG) comes on. If not, the bulb needs to be replaced. That beep is to let you know the air bag light doesn't work or that there is something wrong with the air bag system.

If rearbag has a hole will this affect start ing? Depletes charge in new battery


You will have to turn the air ride system off until the bag is fixed. Otherwise the pump will run continuously trying to fill the bag. This will obviously kill the battery.

2007 tahoe will not start. started this morning and now nothing. turn key on and everything works. a message comes across dash and says service air bag. will not turn over.


if there is a fault with the air bag the car wont start as a safety precaution so it doesnt go off while your driving i think you have no choice but to have an auto electrician or service guy look at it and get it fixed. sorry to be the messenger of bad news.

When I turn on my car the air bag light goes on like its not working. When this happens my power windows and heater/AC stop working. This has happened before but only for a short while. Now the problem...


Air bag light should go on each time you start the car, after a few seconds it turns off. Usually Air bag wiring is on its own for safety reasons. If you are having a short in your electrical system the first thing you should look at is your ground wire. When the problem started did you have any work done on the car? I have seen radio installers put in the wrong screws which have pierced lines. Hope this helps!

Need to fit two airbags do I fit the module before or after.


disconnect battery and do not work on system for at least 5 minutes then remove air bags and then remove the module. Install both air bags then install module and plug in next hook battery back up and turn key to run do not start watch the air bag light to see if it goes off. if it does start it is there a air bag light light lit or flashing? if no your good to go if you get a flashing light then you need to check accelerometers on each side of the front of the car. If the car is equipped with alarm system you will need to reste it to start.

Air bags turned off, and doesnt change gear properly


The air bags need to be worked on by a pro. Did you check the tranny fluid? If not do so and add if needed. If the tranny fluid is fine then start checking all of the vacume lines.
