Various Componants of the Airbag System may Fail on Hyundai Elantra

System component failure can cause the airbag warning light to illuminate. Stored fault codes should be diagnosed to help isolate the cause of the problem. A recall for the driver's side airbag applies to 1994 & 1995 models only.

Suffered a concussion during a car turning right in front of me. My airbags did not deploy. My light was never on to indicate there was any trouble with the air bag.

I also had the airbag light on for quite some time. took my 98 elantra in to dealer for other repairs and they fixed the airbag issue no question asked by me. They did't even mention it too me. They just took care of the problem with the air bag system. I read there was an issue with a air bag control module in the ceneter console/shifter area known to go bad. Car was way out of warranty. Now, if I can just get CEL code P0442(evap system small leak detected) fixed I can pass inspection again.

It is still illuminated. The car is so old we haven't wanted to pay money to fix the problem.
