Hyundai XG350 owners have reported 12 problems related to warning light on (under the air bag category).
My airbag warning light comes on and will not go out. I took my car to capitol heights Hyundai dealer in maryland and was told that my passenger airbag did not have suspension. The cost to repair this will be $3400. 00. I believe that this should be a recall on the airbag on the passenger side. Was also told that there is a part to the airbag that is a recall but of course my code did not fall within this repair. There must be a better way to handle this.

Air bag warning light stays on. At first the light turned off but after a week it turned on and has remained on. Repair shop said the air bags may deploy in an accident but not certain.

Air bag warning light on dash was on, and dealer said there was a problem with the connector on the front passenger seat. Was quoted approximately $400 to repair the problem and was told safety items were not covered after the vehicle 100,000 mile warranty had expired. It seems the amount to cover a simple connector problem is excessive, especially since it is directly safety related to passengers of the vehicle. The dealer could not explain if the srs system would work or not with the warning light on. How can they determine where the problem is if they don't even know what the results of the problem will be? now I don't know if any of the srs system air bags will deploy in an accident.

I purchased a 2005 Hyundai Xg350 l October 23,2012. One week later the air bag light appeared on the dash. A mechanic told me that it is caused by the airbag connector under the seat, the yellow connector. If it is disconnected and reconnected the warning light would go off. I looked for it and found it. I was not able to reach far enough to disconnect it, but I was able to wiggle the connector and the airbag warning light went off. It appeared that someone had been under the drivers seat before to adjust that connector as it was hanging and did not look to be properly placed. The next day the air bag warning light came on again. I have not been able to get the light to go off again and it remains on. A Hyundai service adviser told me that it is a common issue. I researched it online to find out that when that light is on, the airbag will not work. I also discovered that people have paid to have this issue repaired more than once and have spent a lot of money to have this fixed and it just continues. This is a defect and Hyundai has received many complaints yet they have not issued a recall. Instead they continue to take money from people to repair a part that can not be repaired as it is defective. I got a price quote to replace the connector. The part alone is over $130. The labor more than triples the cost. Owners of this vehicle have been experiencing this problem as early as the 1st year of ownership in 2005. It is now almost 2013 and Hyundai still has not issued a recall for the problem.
The contact owns a 2005 Hyundai Xg350. The contact stated that the air bag warning light illuminated while driving 30 mph. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer for a diagnostic test, which determined that the air bag sensor for the driver's seat was defective. The dealer advised that the entire driver's seat assembly needed to be replaced. Neither the driver's seat nor the sensor was replaced. The failure mileage was 88,000. The VIN was not available.
Hyundai motor corporation air bag wiring harness connector defect. Numerous Hyundai motor cars, Xg350, sonata, etc. Have faulty connectors which prevent the airbag system from working. More than one dealer has stated in written service reports(available for review) the problems lie in a faulty airbag wiring connector in the wiring harness. They reseat the plugs in the front seats and then they reset the 'computer' and the airbag warning light goes out, however it comes back on again after a short interval. This 'defect' applies to numerous models of Hyundai cars. It is dubious the system will work properly in the event it is needed in an emergency.
The contact owns a 2002 Hyundai Xg350. The air bag warning light illuminates on the instrument control panel; which indicates that the air bags are inoperative. A technician from the dealer advised her to bring the vehicle to the dealer for diagnostic testing. She was in the process of having the vehicle inspected. The failure mileage was 92,000.
The airbag warning light went on indicating that the airbags were not functioning. The problem was corrected however it continues to reoccur and has occured 8 times over the last two years. Hyundai has "fixed" the problem by adjusting a connector under the seat however the porblem continues to reoccur. It has now happened 8 times and after the last "repair" 3 weeks ago the warning light is back on. When the light is on we have no airbag protection. Checking the internet I found that this is a common problem for which Hyundai has no real fix. Hyundai is now charging us to "fix" the problem but the fix only last 2-4 weeks and the warning light goes back on. This is a serious safety hazard and apparently occurs frequently with the Xg350. The car needs to be recalled and a permanent fix made before someone is killed when the airbags do not activate in an accident.
The contact owns a 2002 Hyundai Xg350. The contact stated when turning a corner at various speeds, the vehicle would lose traction. The vehicle was previously involved in a crash as a result of the failure. The contact had all four tires replaced in an attempt to correct the failure but to no avail. Most recently, the air bag warning light illuminated on the instrument panel. The dealer advised there was a shortage in the system. The vehicle was taken to a different dealer for a second opinion and was advised that the air bag possibly was not present in the vehicle. The failure mileage was 83,000 and the current mileage was 119,000.
Chronic problem. Air bag warning light continuously illuminated after starting engine. Dealer cleared fault and attempted to fix issue multiple (7+) times, but never achieved a permanent resolution. Each time it was reported to have been "resolved" by manipulation of connectors, rerouting of cables and/or replacing wiring harnesses. Issue has been a chronic recurring problem for the entire life of the vehicle, and never been more than temporarily suppressed. Dealer diagnosis presently is that a 3rd wiring harness now needs replacement, but Hyundai motors is disallowing the work as not being covered by the in-force extended bumper-to-bumper warranty. This should have been previously fixed once and for all, and not dragged out by applying ineffective band-aid fixes until such time than they disavow further responsibility for the problem that they never truly fixed to begin with. Briefly researching the subject, I find it remarkable at the volume of consumers reporting the same or similar experiences. An intuitively obvious conclusion that this is an engineering design fault that Hyundai is well aware of, for which they have been incompetent or unwilling to properly implement a remediation post-sale. It is particularly unconscionable that they are ignoring their moral, if not legal, responsibility to provide protection for the vehicle occupants by initially delivering, and subsequently maintaining such a vital safety system.
