I changed the car's battery this morning. The airbag light has never come on before. Immediately after changing the battery, the airbag light has come on and stayed on. Is there some issue with the loss of electric power and the airbag system?
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.
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.
The airbag Indicator has been on for several months now. My husband called the Kia dealer and they said it'll be $100 + to diagnose the issue and if it's what he presumes the problem to be it'll be around $500 to fix. I haven't been using my Sorento because I feel it's too dangerous to take a risk on one of the airbags deploying on it's own while I'm driving or not deploying if I get into an accident.
air bag light on when wife sit on seat , have been waitin almost 3 months for dealer to get instructions from home office thinking about giving a letter dated when I reported problem to my lawyer, dealer said good luck collecting if an accident did happen., I guess they thought I would forget it
This is the third time its HAPPENED!!! Every time my battery needs replacing ,the airbag internal battery depletes and makes the air bag light come on ! I can't even work on my car anymore without fear of this same thing happening again and again. There needs to be a recall notice for this problem! I have spent the last week doing research on how to fix it and have come across thousands of people with the same complaint. My battery started to go dead ,or had work done to my car , which means they had to disconnect the battery... Same thing over and over again!!
4 days after having the interlock recall fixed the air bag indicator light turned on. In the process of fixing the recall, the tore the wires out of my interior lighting system and still in the process of fixing this issue.
I have the same air bag light problem. It sounds like alot of the kia do. I contacted kia, they will not do anything. Then i contacted the NHTSA they took my claim and are looking in to it to see if it is something of a recall thing. If i was you all, i would contact them too.
