Hyundai Sonata owners have reported 437 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
My airbag light came on in my vehicle due to bad seat belt pretensioners. After taking my car to the dealer they advised me that the pretensioners had been replaced in 2007 and did not fall under the warranty/recall. After reading that my car falls under the repair statue and statement made by Hyundai my car has not been fixed. The campaign number that I am referring to is campaign number pe14023. The first repairs occurred at 30k and 35k miles approximately.

I started my car one day and notice that the airbag light was on and wouldn't go off. I wasn't involved in a wreck or hit no bump, just started it and it was on.
Airbag light stays on.
#1today 9/18/2016 while I was driving down the road my airbag light came on. When I made my first stop the light when off. When I began to drive again the light came on and will not go off. #2 I had to pay over three hundred dollars to have my sterling coupler replaced it started with a little clicking noise when I turn to the right and afterwards began to progress and get louder. While driving the car the steering wheel will shake and vibrate until it felt as if the steering wheel will shake a lose. #3 the lights on my car will flicker on and off while driving it's very obvious at night it is a scary situation. One night they flicker and didn't want to come back on right away until I had to pull over on the side of the road until they came back on. I called my Hyundai dealer and was told that it will be an 118 service charged to look at it because my warranty is up. I then contacted Hyundai USA when they finally contacted me back they pretty much told me the same thing the Hyundai dealer said. The problem with my lights began in 2012 but every time it took the car in the problem could not be detected so they would say and this was when I was under my warranty.

"airbag light recall" I have an airbag light on in my car now and it seems like a ton of other people are having or have had the same issue! this light popped on about a month ago while I was driving down the road. I haven't had any accidents, nothing else changed the light just popped on. I am requesting that this be turned into a recall because this is not due to anything that I have done.
I have a 2005 Hyundai Sonata and reported this to the dealership twice as of today and the dealership continues to stall. The airbag light stays on and never goes off so I reported it again about this problem, where are safety concerns for the consumers.

One day my airbag light just popped on and will not go off and I never be in a accident and it's kind of freaking me out a little.
Srs indicator light is illuminated on instrument cluster. Srs may be disabled.
Air bag light won't go off - serviced regularly - brought this to two separate dealers not covered they said clock spring timer and it is not on recall list - they did say it is unsafe if airbags deploy if you should hit a bump - extended warranty doesn't touch airbags. . .
Air bag light stayed on on dashboard and dealer said it was a clock spring but I have never had an issue with an air bag in any car I have ever driven and feel it was defective.

I have had several malfunctions with this vehicle that is less than 6 years old. It started with clicking in the wheel, key stuck in the ignition and now my air bag light is on and that is a malfunction in the system. It seems like everything is a malfunction that shouldn't be happening to a car less than 6 y/o. My car stay in the shop for some reason or another. I can honestly say I will never purchase another Hyundai of any kind.
Airbag light on dash board turned on few months ago, the car has never involved in any kind of accident. It is 2011 Sonata and has never been in an accident. The dash board light turned on few months ago after 5 1/2 years of owning the car. I took to the dealer and they ask for $160 for diagnostic and that amount will apply to the cost of fixing the problem if I decides to go ahead of fixing the airbag lighting problem, the dealer gave a rough estimate between $900 to $1200 to fix this airbag issues. They also said the the airbag only warranty for 6 years or 60,000 miles. I though the airbag should be 10 years and 100,000 miles as Hyundai always advertised that. I searched on the web and there are a recall on airbag for elantra but not Sonata. It is definitely a manufacture defected because this is the original airbag and the car has never been in any kind of accident as I mentioned above. I seemed like the 10/100,000 warranty is just for advertisement purpose and they are not really stand behind their product or quality. Btw - I exchanged some email with Hyundai corporation but it did not go anywhere.
When I get in my car to crank it up, I noticed my airbag light would come on and then go off and then come back on and stay on. It does not matter if I am driving or sitting in my car while in park. God forbid if I get into an accident, my airbag might not go off. Also I have read other complaints for the same year vehicle as mine dealing with the same issue. There need to be a recall on the airbags. It could be a faulty sensor or something.
The steering column is rattling and shaking when braking and or reaching a speed of 60. It is causing the balancing of tires worn, and the air bag light has come on and tire pressure light.

Airbag light illuminated and stay on, took the car to the dealer and I was to it needs new airbags . Car is never being into accident, and it never had any problems related to airbag befor. This car is not safe as airbags can just go off with out any aparent reason. ,my other problem of this car is, when I accelerate there's pigging noise and car almost losses power this happen in middle of hiway once and lost power other times on street. Took it to the dealer was not given clear answer to why the car does this.
Recently suddenly airbag light came on and it now stays on all the time after starting the car. When I start the car, it blinks once and then remain lit. I used the code reader to get the codes and it gave two codes for airbag system, b1102 and b1448. On further googling, the 1st code indicates low input voltage and 2nd one indicates passenger occupant detecting system fault. Now I am concerned to use the car as the air bag system is turned off .
B1448 issue showing OCS mat defect. Red dash light saying "air bag" came on @104000 miles and remains on. Light came on while driving with no occupant in passenger seat. No accidents or airbag deployments. Dealer indicates no active recall however NHTSA shows "Hyundai recall no. 083. System which features an occupant classification system (OCS) in the right front seat. The purpose of the OCS is to disable the right passenger seat front air bag when it detects the presence of a child restraint system or small child in the right front seat. The right front air bag is disabled to prevent injuries to a child that may result from a right front air bag inflation during a crash. I have an appointment today but since dealer will check VIN for active recalls, expect them to deny recall service and try to make me pay for repair. Had a notice back in 2019 saying to take vehicle to dealer to check which I did and without the benefit of a scan, they had someone sit in the seat to verify light extinguished but did no repair. My 13 year old daughter (weighing 85 pounds)would sit in seat and "airbag off light" would remain on when it should have extinguished and provided air bag protection. They told me the threshold was above my daughter's weight but would not tell me what the weight is supposed to be. I disagreed with their assessment and let them know. However, the dash airbag light moi was not lighting at that time but now is on. I believe the sensor is defective and computer is trying to determine whether anyone is in the seat or not.
