Airbag light illuminates. Was told by dealership it is a problem with an electric circuit inside the seatbelt buckle and that it can lead to problems with airbag. Checked online and saw many many Hyundai Sonata 2006 and 2007 users complaining of the same problem. On the Hyundai paperwork they wrote: " scanned and found code b1701 driver seat belt buckle shorted needs driver seat belt buckle parts and labor".

Air bag light came on , so took it to dealer an they said passenger seat belt buckle needs replacement at the cost of 400 bucks. So air bags won't deploy an seat belt may not work. This is dangerous an should be a recall on this vehicle as I see it has happened to lots of people years 2006 2007 2008. When can we expect the recall on this. I would like to get my car fixed. Thanks, michelle.

While driving I noticed that my air bag light came on, I immediately went to the dealer. They said that my passenger seat belt is defected. They said the cost of fixing is approximately $500. 00, and the initial fee was $110. I looked online and there has been alot of complaints about this same issue.

Air bag sensor frequently mistakes an adult for a child and turns off. In addition, the air bag light has been on for at 3 years. Auto had about 125000 miles when thge air bag light came on. Took the car to a dealer and they informed me I would have to pay well over $1,000 to repair the air bag sensor in the passenger side seat. Instead, I bought black tape to cover the air bag light. I thought this safety defect woulh have been recalled by now. Apparently, none of the airbags will deploy in an accident. This does not make sense, given the remaining airbag sensors mosdt likely work. I am the original owner of things car.

Recently I took my car into the Hyundai dealership for an oil change. The next day my air bag light came on and will not turn off. I have also had this problem with the tpms light. The dealership hooked my car up to diagnostics for the tpms light and said they fixed it. However couple days later the light came back on. They want to charge every time just to look at it when they already looked at the tpms light. I am afraid the same thing is going to happen with the airbag light. They want a $100 to look at it when they should already know Sonata has had several if not hundreds of complaints about this exact issue.

Air bag light on the display has come up and it won't go away. Took the vehicle to dealer and I was told that there is spring in the steering wheel worth $450 need to be replaced. Also I have been asked to replace passenger seat belt buckle assembly costing more than $350, to correct the airbag light. I read that an investigation is going on for 2008 Hyundai Sonata for the mentioned seat belt buckle. Please conduct an investigation into the mentioned air bag issue to find out if this is a widespread issue with the model and get the manufacturer to bear the cost.

The air bag light came on so I took the car into the dealer for a diagnosis ($75). They told me there are two issues - the OCS which is already under recall so no charge and the other is the driver side seat belt issue reported by many others here. I was told that this $300+ repair is necessary for the airbag system to work properly. Clearly this should be a recall item or at least repaired at no charge if it occurs. Also, the dealer wouldn't even credit me for the diagnostic fee even though one of the issues is a recall and the other is going to be repaired by the dealer.

Air bag light on. This is a continuing issue with this vehicle. This is a safety issue and I feel it should be repaired not at my expense. Contacted dealer and also contacted Hyundai customer assistance center. I was told that there was a previous recall but the vehicle is out of warranty it has to be repaired again at my expense. I feel that this being a safety issue, Hyundai should take care of their customers.

Air bag light came on. Had the vehicle sent in to dealership last year for the same problem. Car is in great condition do not know why the light keeps coming up. A recall needs to be initiated to fix the problem once and for all. This could be a potential danger for my kids.

Two weeks ago my air bag light came on. Brought the vehicle into the dealer this morning and they tell me that I need a new passenger seatbelt buckle. Failure to replace this incredibly expensive part would result in the failure of the airbags to deploy in the event of a crash. Also, the state I live in would not allow the vehicle to pass inspection with this light being on. So I can not wait for a recall, I have to replace this part now. Seeing as how many others have reported this problem and it directly relates to the safety of the vehicle I do not understand why this seatbelt buckle has not yet been recalled.

Airbag light came on one day and just never went off. No accidents or damage to the car had been done prior. Went to other mechanics and they couldn't even figure out what the code on their diagnostic machines was. Hyundai checked it and told me it was the passenger buckle canister. That's fine, but 400,000 of these in the 06-08 Sonata models have now "failed" and at $100 for a diagnostics, then another $250 for a belt buckle repairs, I don't see how this could be wear and tear in the vehicle. Just seems like easy money for Hyundai. Hope this gets resolved soon.

Your probe into the Hyundai Sonata airbag issue should be expanded to earlier models as we have a 2005 and what you are initially explaining affects our vehicle also. We have had the airbag light reset a few times by the dealer (zimbrik Hyundai in madison, WI). They initially stated that it was just a wire under the seat that needed to be reattached. They'd do that and turn off the airbag light, it'd be ok for a few months, then the light would come back on. They eventually stated they wanted to repack the airbag for thousands of dollars, seemed somewhat like a scam, so we no longer go it fixed and have been driving with the airbag light on.

While I was driving a couple days ago my air bag light came on. It has stayed on for 3 days now. I called Hyundai customer service and they stated that the seat belt issue is under investigation. I was informed that since this has not been recalled, I must pay $100 for a diagnostic check and then hundreds of more dollars to get it fixed with no guarantee that it will be reimbursed. This is ridiculous that I must pay for a known safety issue to be fixed because a government agency is so slow moving in forcing a recall. This is a known issue that puts lives at risk. This needs to be recalled immediately and those of us that have paid for it be reimbursed.

Airbag light remains lit, suspected it had to do with passenger airbag recall. Dealer says not, that it is the passenger seat belt pretensioner and that in an accident the seat belt system would not work if not fixed and wants to charge $485 to do so. This is a safety issue and needs to be added to the recall because, based on the number of complaints I see, this is obviously a parts failure. Since the driver's side gets used far more often than the passenger, it is hasn't failed as a result of use.

Over the course of a few days, the driver's air bag light started to be lit continuously while an occupant was in the seat. Initially, the light would come on and then go out after a few moments. However, after approximately a week of the on/off, the light then remained lit anytime the car was on. A few weeks later, the esc off light began to light up while driving the car. The light would come on while the car was in motion and would not shut off/turn esc on unless the car was stopped, turned off, and then back on. The issue has appeared sporadically, usually when associated with a turn. It has happened approximately 10 times thus far.

This is the second time this has happened since 2010. The first time was in August of 2012. The front passenger seat was pushed all the way back and the air bag light came on. I did not go to get it fixed right away. I went to get an oil change around October 2012 and my mechanic said that one of the connectors to the airbag had become disconnected. He connected it back but the light stayed on because it was still in the computer. He told me I had to go to the dealer in order to have them hook it up because he could not get the car to communicate with his computer. I took it to pride Hyundai because there just happened to be a recall on the air bags but it did not apply to my car. They said that they could not find anything wrong with the airbag. They erased the codes that were stuck in the computer and everything was ok until July of 2014 when my son adjusted the seat by pushing it back. The airbag light pops on again. I think this is a gimmick of Hyundai by making the connectors either too loose or too short. Of course I do no longer have a warranty on the car. It expired at 65,000 miles because I am the second owner. I keep reading horror stories of how much Hyundai charges their customers to fix this issue. They tell them it is a faulty passenger seat belt assembly. They supposedly fix it and it keeps happening. Something needs to be done about this because it is a safety issue.

We had the passenger seat re-calibrated due to lit airbag light sometime last year under the previous recall - we were not notified by Hyundai at all and instead, were told by the dealer when we took the car in that it was a recall item, which we found unconscionable on the manufacturer's part. We could not afford an airbag repair and drove the car for over a year, and found out later that the defect would render the entire system nonfunctional. The airbag light is lit again - the dealer told us not to put anything on the passenger seat besides a person so as not to trigger "something". When I inquired again about the lit airbag light, the dealer told me "it could be the seat belt" and quoted a price well over $100. It is clear the dealer, capital city Hyundai in tallahassee, florida is already aware of the problem, and therefore, so is Hyundai. Now I see that this is an emerging problem through an edmund's article dated July 25, 2014 - please compel Hyundai to act on this defect as soon as possible. My college aged son and teen daughter use the car and I worry constantly about their safety. Consumers should not have to pay for a defect involving safety at all - I paid for the car once!!.
