Hyundai Sonata owners have reported 426 problems related to air bag light on (under the air bag category).
#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.

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.
The contact owns a 2011 Hyundai Sonata. While the vehicle was stationary, the air bag indicator illuminated without warning. The vehicle was not diagnosed nor repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the issue. The failure mileage was 94,044.
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.
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.

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.
Air bag light on drivers side dash has come on for no reason and is staying illuminated. Passenger side sensor that shows a person is sitting in the seat without a belt on is flashing. Both occurred at the same time. Seems like a recurrent problem that the manufacturer won't deal with due to the numerous similar complaints read online.
Takata recall air bag light stays on. Dealer says it's a faulty clock spring and will cost $340 for parts and labor. This can be deadly if in a crash and air bags don't deploy!.
My airbag light is illuminated and seat belt light blinks on the passenger side. It seems to be a known problem with the Hyundai Sonata. Dealer needs to recall the passenger seat/faulty sensor for the safety of the passengers.
I purchased my car new 2011 Sonata in Dec. 2010 and now my airbag light stays on. I have not been in any accidents. . . . . . . What!!!!.
The air bag light has recently illuminated and stays on. There is nothing obstructing the wires under the seats and the vehicle has not been in a crash. The light illuminated while driving down the road and has remained on. Contacted the dealership and was informed that airbags and sensors are only covered under the first 5 years and 60,000 miles. Based on the recent plethora of recalls on the 2011 Hyundai Sonata and after reading countless complaints online with other vehicles of the same make and model having the exact same issues, I am concerned that not only are the airbags covered under a limited warranty, but that this may be another possible recall in the long line of recalls for the Hyundai Sonata. I do not feel that this is a safe car for anyone and feel that the airbag light/deactivation could result in deaths should Hyundai not cover the airbags longer and for individuals who may not be able to afford the repair.
Air bag light is on and will not turn off. I was advised by the dealership that I have to pay $450 to replace a spring inside the steering column for the air bags to deploy. I have never been in an accident. This is frustrating and should be considered a manufacture defect.
Air bag light came on in the dash at approx 86,600 miles; for no apparent reason. Also noticed that the passenger seat belt sign near the center console is flashing even if there is no one seated in the passenger seat.
Sonata recall. The airbag light has been on for 3days now and won't shut off no matter what I do and I'm scared it will deploy. Back in may I noticed the paint in my car shipping after I took it to get washed, now my car looks ugly.
