Air bag light warning light remains on when vehicle is running. Took to dealer they said is clock spring assembly needs replacing. I told them it was a recall and they said there is no recall on it. I declined the repair because I knew there was a recall but I didn't take paperwork with me thinking they would know about it. Upon returning home and finding paperwork on recall (camp103) I called back and they now said there was a recall and they replaced that part in November 2012. I do not remember them replacing it but I'll take them at their word on that. My issue is, did they replace the recalled part with another defective part if it only lasted 18 months! I've had many cars over the years some a decade old or older never this air bag issue. I feel they should replace this recall again if they repaired it with another short lived defective part.

On day the air bag warning light came on on the vehicle and has never gone off. The dealer told me that the air bag control module had failed. The dealer told me the repair would cost $450!. I could not afford to spend that much money to have it fixed. I have already spent over $3000 on repairs for this vehicle and I cannot afford to put any more money it to. From the number of air bag complaints I have seen I think there should be a recall issued.

The air bag warning light in the main dash console stays illuminated after starting the vehicle. I have contacted Hyundaiusa. Com customer service & they just referred me to the dealer where I purchased the vehicle "certified used" and they said that the original warranty did not transfer when bought used (5 yrs/60,000 miles). Just to get the problem diagnosed would be $95. So I researched on the internet nhsta website and I found all of the same complaints about this year, make & model. Accidents have been reported where the airbag malfunctions, sensor warning does not work properly, etc. So my question to the nhsta is why hasn't this vehicle been recalled for airbag warning light malfunction with all of the complaints you have received? this is a dangerous safety issue especially if it prevents airbags from deploying in an accident. Please investigate with Hyundai & hopefully this can be corrected with a recall. Thank you.

Failure Date: 10/02/2010

On our 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe limited with 45,391 miles, VIN # [xxx], the check engine light started coming on when it was about 1 year old. It has now come on approximately 10 times. The dealer always says it's the gas cap. We have tightened the gas cap varying degrees and it does not matter how tight it is. The check engine light continues to come on. They claim to have replaced the gas cap 3 times out of 10 trips. Whether that is true or not, I don't know. Additionally, the red "air bag" warning light came on about a week ago and will not go off. I understand Hyundai has a history of airbag problems and would like to know if you can force them to fix this problem as well as the check engine light.

On may 2010 the air bag warning indicator light on my dashboard suddenly illuminated and would not go out even when the vehicle was in operation. Got an appointment and took my 2009 santafe limited awd v6 into the dealer and here's the narrative from the dealer: "customer states his air bag light is on present code b1334 f15 front impact sensor error in history cleared code verified to be ok" there were no repairs completed, only the error code was cleared. About 3 weeks after the code was cleared the air bag warning light began to illuminate again during driving and would stay on for about 20 seconds at a time, while driving, and then go off. This occurred on two occasions. Today, August 3, 2010 the air bag warning light illuminated again, while driving, and did not go off. It remains on. I will be returning back to the dealer.

On January 4, 2010 I had the vehicle battery replaced. After battery installation the airbag warning light came on and remained on. On Jan. 11 I paid $87 to have a diagnostic test which incorrectly indicated that all airbags had been deployed plus a crash was recorded. Mechanic's recommendation was to have srs control module replaced at an estimated cost of over $400.

Airbag system (passenger side) doesn't always "sense" the occupant accurately, in a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe. The vehicle's front-passenger "airbag off" warning light came on whenever a small adult was in the seat, or would intermittently turn off depending on the person's sitting position. This affects my 125 pound wife who by Hyundai's test is considered a person of "smaller stature. " I was told 130 lbs is the minimum weight to enable the airbag but again depending on her sitting position, the light will go on and off. The same system works fine in a 2009 Hyundai sonata in which she would be protected. Why is there a difference?.
