How do I get the Air Bag light off ?


you will have to take it to the dealer to have the computer reflashed in order to reset it. they will tell you why the light is on so you can fix the problem. when the light is on the air bag will not deploy if you have a accident

The air bag light is on.Without any bumps,pot holes,super sudden stops


The light is telling you there is a problem with a sensor or other component. You need to have the body computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed.

Air bag sensors light on 2007 kia optima came on about after a small fender bender. right front fender is slightly damaged, is there an airbag sensor light located there?


There may not be a sensor in that very location where the damage is but it may have been enough to trigger at least one sensor. The thing to do would have a shop hook up a scanner and see why the light is on instead of replacing sensors. Usually it takes more force to trigger a sensor inside the car than it does to trigger and outside sensor. And at least two sensors need to trigger before an airbag is deployed.

Warning light for airbag is on constantly


There is a problem with the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). Your air bags may or may not deploy in a crash. They can also deploy prematurely. Working on the SRS is hazardous and for this reason this is not a DIY repair unless you are knowledgable. Take it to a professional for repair.

Air bag


If the air bag light is blinking count the blinks for the code. Example.. If the air bag light flashes once and then a short pause and then two blinks you would have a code 12. and so on. If it just stays on you will need to take it into a repair shop and get it checked. My best guess without looking at it would be that the clockspring is not working properly. Most of the time when the clockspring goes out other things stop working like the horn or cruise control or something that is on the steering wheel. Hope this helps.
