I have an issue with the air bag light being on and a coworker had the same issue with hers. With the light being on it prevents me from getting an inspection sticker in my state. This has been an ongoing issue for the last several years and there has been recalls on newer Sonatas. Please look into this.

The air bag light stays on all the time and the passenger seat belt light blinks whether someone is in the passenger seat or not. My mechanic told me the air bag sensor in the passenger seat no longer works, but he couldn't tell me if the air bag would deploy in an accident. I've read on the internet there was a recall on the passenger seat air bag sensor but when I called Hyundai corporate they couldn't find a recall. I think the recall was closed but it needs to be reopened again because this is very dangerous and the air bag sensor by itself costs almost $1,100 not including labor. A lot of people can't afford that and therefore will not get it fixed. Which means Hyundai is going to eventually get sued because of this problem. How many people are going to get seriously hurt or killed before Hyundai does something about this? I've read over and over on the internet that this is a real problem for people with Hyundai's. It's always the passenger air bag sensor that malfunctions. Thank you for anything you can do to get the Hyundai passenger air bag recalled.

Air bag light on dash stayed lit all the time. Took to mechanic who said code showed passenger side sensor is faulty which means the whole seat has to be replaced in order for entire air bag system to work. Said codes showed prior similar occurances. Hyundai needs to reimburse for replacement and issue recall -lots of similar accounts online.

2011 Sonata, car burns oil to black immediately. Took car in on warranty service for front knocking noise that appeared to generate from steering wheel. Replaced left transaxle, still noise took it back they replaced right transaxle. The issues with electrical still exist they've replaced the left side buttons on steering wheel even though I complained none worked correctly. Now cruise control is nonexistent. The airbag light came on at 73000 miles. Seat doesn't go all the way down. There is a definitive rattle originating from the engine and at times the rear end seems to have drag and shake. They inspected car for recall and of course they said my vehicle is unaffected but who knows how thorough their inspection actually is. I mean they represent Hyundai so why would they want to say it was bad prior to any breakdown. Right. I feel like this severe of an issue should have an independent inspection.

While the car was parked in the driveway of my home, I turned the vehicle on and the airbags lights came on the dash. I drove it work and hoping the airbag lights will turn off and it did not. I took the problem to the Hyundai dealership for evaluation. A little history, my airbag lights came on back in 2012, case #10352554, the vehicle had a recall for it. The dealership sent the front right passenger seat to California for repairs. The problem was fixed. Now jump forward 2017, my airbags light came on again and the dealership advised me the problem is not related to the recall back in 2012. The dealership advised me the problem now had to do with the front passenger seat pressure sensor (cushion) for the airbags. According to the dealership they would have to replace the whole front passenger seat to fix the problem in order for my front passenger seat airbag to deploy properly during an accident. I feel that this is a defect with this Hyundai vehicle and a secondary problem related to the airbag recall. I feel the problem should be investigated further to prevent any injury or death.

The airbag light on the dashboard stays on and the passenger continuously blinks. I happened to click/engage the seat belt (with no one in the seat) and the passenger light goes off but the airbag light on dashboard stays on. I do not know the exact date this started happening because my daughter drives it and she's going to colorado college in colorado springs. But today's date is 6/5/2017.

Driver side air bag light is on. I take it to the dealer (lhm Hyundai in spokane valley, wa), they fix it and it keeps turning back on. This happened again when I adjusted the seat. The car was parked when I moved the seat back to remove and clean the mat, and then moved it back in the forward normal position. When I turned on the ignition the light turned on and is still on continuously. When I called to make an appointment, I was told that it may not be the recall issue and that I may have to pay for a diagostic on it. Isn't this still part of the recall with the seat sensor? this has been happening on and off for several years.

Airbag light is on in the car. Hyundai dealership identified it as a free recall and that the seat would need to be shipped out to California to be repaired to correct OCS. The seat was unable to be shipped out due to the lack of loaner vehicle. Sometime later checked back with dealership about getting recall completed. Now there is no active recall on the passenger seat OCS, and dealer did not record the diagnosis on the vehicle airbag system. Dealer wants to charge another $130 to read codes for work already completed. The approx. Original mileage was 64000 when dealer originally diagnosed.

Air bag light remains on, the car was not involved in an accident prior to the light coming on. I was on an online Hyundai forum and this seems to be a problem for many owners. I contacted Hyundai case#10275049 about recall 08v161000. Hyundai says my car is not involved in that or any other airbag recall.

The contact owns a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. The contact stated that the air bag warning indicator illuminated when the vehicle was started. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, but was not diagnosed due to the service charge fee. The manufacturer stated that the vehicle may be included in a recall for the air bags (perhaps pertaining to the clockspring). If so, the manufacturer advised the contact to call them and they would send someone to the dealer. Case number: 10207834 was provided. The NHTSA campaign number was not provided. The failure mileage was 59,900.
