When making a sudden stop, the airbag light came on and stayed on. Are there any recalls for the 2000 Hyundai Elantra airbag light?

    I just checked, but unfortunately there is no recall for any SRS problems.
    I suggest to find a shop who can diagnose the SRS system for you, since the airbag may won't work in a case of accident.

    There is a recall for another problem though, you may want to stop at a dealership and check on it. Here is the info:
    Recall - (MAF Sensor) Low Speed Stalling

    Group: CAMPAIGN

    Number: 00-01-006

    Date: OCTOBER, 2000

    Model: 1999 - 2000 ELANTRA
    Subject:
    1999 - 2000 ELANTRA MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR CONNECTOR REPLACEMENT CAMPAIGN 040

    DESCRIPTION:
    Engine vibration transmitted to the MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor electrical connector wiring harness may cause an intermittent MAF sensor electrical signal interruption, which may lead to low speed engine stalling on some 1999 and 2000 model year Elantra vehicles. This TSB describes the procedure for changing the MAF sensor electrical connector and wiring harness to incorporate a relief loop in the harness that will reduce the vibration that may be transmitted to the MAF sensor electrical connector.

    VEHICLES AFFECTED
    ^ Model : 1999 and 2000 Model Year ELANTRA vehicles

    ^ Affected vehicle production date range : June 01, 1999 through June 16, 2000.
