Air bag light stays on. No accidents or any reason for the light to be on. Received code b1389 for drivers side airbag malfunction. Not sure yet if its the track position sensor or the adu or both yet. There is a tsb but no recall. It seems like Kia doesn't recall anything.

I have the same problem. Quite frankly, these cars are no good. Too many problems. The government should have a recall on these KIA Sorentos

My passenger front seat air bag light is on. I have the code from my auto mechanic's diagnostic test and KIA wants to charge me $150.00 to have a new diagnostic test. I don't feel I should have to pay for this as I already had it tested and want KIA to replace or repair it to keep us safe.

My airbag light came on at 77500 miles on my 2011 Kia. Dealership wants $120.00 just for diagnostic testing. Kia needs to step up and take care of there customers!!

I had the same issue, but Kia said it was the sensor in the seat. They replaced the entire seat under warranty. Problem is fixed.

The light started on since last week all of sudden (no accident whatsoever). The dealer said the warranty for airbag is up to 60,000 miles, so I have to pay $95 for diagnostics. Well, I will go to local mechanics to see what the error code is.

Airbag light on
Air bag light came on. Took it to KIA and they told me that my airbag partially inflated then stopped. I have to turn it over to my insurance company and pay my deductible or pay 1700.00 out of pocket. I was not in a accident the light just came on.
